FRB is a great place to work if you are complacent, but...

Analyst/Associate (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsI have worked for 3 departments at the bank and I've been lucky to have very laidback, supportive managers -- however, not everyone at the bank has a great manager. Other pros include:

- Eagles Cafe
- If you like to drink and party, you'll love it here
- Compensation in some departments are generous (other departments are underpaid)
- Flexible work schedule -- again, only in some departments
- Strong customer service
- Great marketing

FRB is a great place to work if you are complacent - but for highly motivated individuals who want upward mobility, there are better opportunities.

Cons- Stagnant jobs, unchanged career path, little room for growth
- Not many well rounded employees -- maybe not in all departments
- The work is not stimulating, a lot of data entry or work that requires little/no thought
- Office politics and mediocre employees
- People are quick to throw you under the bus
- Lack/absent of knowledge, management, and leadership skills from Senior Management
- Poor organization structure and no processes in place
- OT may get rejected
- Gossip and drama
