I worked at Federal Reserve Board full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Interesting work at the most important central bank in the world; decent pay with periodic cash bonuses; own office; civilized hours; good learning opportunities for younger professionals.

Cons

Career path opaque and perplexing; job increasingly driven by process and process fulfilment imperatives; limited view of the organization; stifling class system of management; bureaucratic procedures.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more communicative and honest with staff. Generate genuine staff development and promotional opportunities that are equitable. Abolish "caste" system of management. Allow staff greater say (without prejudice) in building true consensus and driving organizational as well as business change.
