I worked at Federal Reserve Board as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Fantastic program to get involved in. You get assigned to engaging projects from day 1 and the level of responsibility is usually high, though this will vary by department/economist. Some times there you will get the opportunity to co-author a paper, and generally the FRB outputs academic-level research. Integration into the Board's culture happens from the get-go, with plenty of opportunities to meet with senior economists and the Chairman himself.

Cons

The pay compared to other internships in consulting or banking is relatively low.
