    Pros

    It provides a unique perspective you can't get many other places. Benefits are great, people are a pleasure to work with, time off is a huge pro

    Cons

    Too much consensus building on business ops side (internal operations of Board). Too many people stuck in old ways "these is how we always do things" (this culture is changing with recent strategic management hires though)

    Advice to Management

    Bring some younger people in! Bring some life and energy into this place!

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

    Pros

    Good people, nice environment, awesome buildings and perks that come with being a Board employee. Benefits are also good for employees. Work can get boring but that's just work. When I received my paycheck, it all made sense. Most people who work there are friendly but there is also some politics involved. Duh! I got to meet and take a pic with Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen. So that was a great experience.

    Cons

    I was given a tedious project from which I did not learn much. Seemed like wax on wax off type of job as an intern but I did my time and earned what I deserved. Actually they overpaid me... how dumb is that, being the Fed. I received an extra paycheck and they've been bugging me about it since.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't be so uptight. Not my manager, but some other interns I observed.
