    I have been working at Federal Reserve Board full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Relaxed work environment: Easy to leave work at work
    - Access to top Economists and lots of smart people (and some potential co-authors)
    - Prestige: great career starter, especially for those thinking of an econ PhD
    - If you are in your twenties: great network of similarly aged, similarly minded people.
    - Benefits: health, vision, dental, bike parking, in-house gym, beautiful cafeteria
    - You will occasionally find yourself eating lunch within shouting distance of "Big Ben" Bernanke

    Cons

    - Can get boring for the unambitious employee
    - Very little upward mobility within the Fed itself (obvious glass-ceiling for the non-PhD holders)
