A generally good lifetime experience at the U.S. central bank

Senior Financial Services Analyst (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsInteresting 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.

ConsCareer 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great to work in a place that has such an impact and relationship to the US economy

    IT Analyst (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

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


    Pros: People are highly educated, generally pleasant Cons: Long term employees with minimal perspective on how to utilize technology efficiently. Lot of silos across divisions, not team players - dont share their information/relationships… Advice to Senior Management: Get a better leader for IT, has no strategic vision or relationship… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
