I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia full-time

Pros

Philadelphia, Decent wage, decent benefits, great macro and micro exposure to the banking system and the economy. cafeteria is good. Lots of Lifers who have some good insight. Job stability. 25-35 percent of the people are exceptional

Cons

clock puncher mentality. No dedication. very silo-ed. Slow to embrace anything new, and I mean painfully slow. easily caught up in minutiae, lots of Lifers who are more like parasites and abuse job stability. 65-75 percent of the people are just there for the ride.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shed your government worker mentality.

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have a good amount of vacation time, descent pay, offer flex time with every other Friday off and great benefits package

    Cons

    Lots of over time for some projects, very unprofessional atmosphere, some groups lack team work and will expect you to do everything while they sit back and watch. They try to apply same test tools and techniques to all projects, however, the tools and techniques they use may not be suitable to every project, slow to adopt change. Generally, very poorly ran and managed department, and ,surprisingly unprofessional for such an institution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more professional. Also, select test technique and test tools based on what is best for a particular project, not because that is just what everyone uses.
