    I worked at Federal Reserve Board

    Pros

    Professional environment. Good training opportunities, benefits, and time off. Prestigious organization; very good on your resume. Work opportunities (based on your position) may allow travel to the 12 district Reserve Banks throughout the country.

    Cons

    Not many cons; overall very satisfied. Job satisfaction varies from department to department, as does the quality of the IT systems; but this can be the case in many orgs. Culture is long standing, so changes are slow going or impossible. If you like it, you like it; if you don't, don't expect things to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any specific advice to management. Prospective employees need to keep in mind that this is a government agency, so the culture is deeply ingrained.

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Board

    Pros

    The job offers excellent benefits, a flexible work schedule, and optional telecommuting options. Job security is also extremely high with this arm of government.

    Cons

    As with any government agency, there are times when things and projects get slowed down by red tape and bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should guide some of the younger managers so that they are more effective at their jobs. It seems that the managers that seem to have highly effective units and projects are the older managers who don't seem to be intimidated or worried that they might lose their jobs.
