    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generous tuition reimbursement policy and organizational culture that values and rewards education and continuous learning. Very smart employees in general. Great career mobility. Culture values integrity and honesty which is rare in today's business climate.

    Cons

    You kind of hit a ceiling when its time for promotion to officer ranks because most officers stay until retirement. Very risk averse culture. Too little employee attrition in the "lifer" ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make it so easy for employees to slide into a comfortable officer position and retire on the job.
