great professional growth and educational opportunities with the feel of public service

Senior Project Consultant (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsTuition reimbursement and training opportunities galore with a robust benefits package. Meets the market rate for salaries. Overall, a great place once you get going. Opportunities to touch on all aspects of the FRB business - supervision, regulation, stats, operations. Happy and productive co-workers.

ConsI find the environment tends to be relaxed at times bordering on complacent. Sometimes wonder if the application development arena is getting work solely because we're "the closest FRB to Silicon Valley" and not on it's merit. Cost is always a concern, specifically when project costs are associated with the employee cost. Project jumping is virtually unheard of, once you're married to a team/project moving off can be a process. Influx of new talent has been enlightening but as an entrenched employee I found my opportunities and cross-training/education on new technologies for other teams lacking.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpecifically with regards to the IT workforce: Some of the newer initiatives show promise in reinvigorating the dynamism and spirit of collaboration required to have a smart, productive, savvy in-house IT and app development group. Don't let them falter. Take back some control from the business lines and utilize your resources to create new solutions. Yes, IT serves the business it supports. No, that doesn't mean we remain on some sort of silent march to oblivion while they figure this out. Be a true partner. Not a willing conspirator.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
