    I have been working at FHLB Chicago as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation was comparable to other interns, especially as a freshmen and sophomore as some interns were. The company cared about millennials and keeping a semi-young professional class.

    Cons

    Overall there were moments when the supervisors did not seem to have experience with interns and were too busy to assign work. Definitely look to other groups in the bank when this happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was really nice and educated, but I wish they spent more time with the interns. Having info sessions was a helpful tool

    Pros

    Great, solid company to work for.
    The people are nice and the culture is great as well.
    Almost all of the people here are happy to help you out if needed.
    Flexible work-life schedule is awesome and they promote some remote work.

    Cons

    Projects are usually slow to get going and difficult to schedule needed people for meetings due to them being so busy on multiple projects.

    Pros

    This place is great. Your co-workers care about you, your manager is always looking out for you, and the Executive Team really cares about the employees and building a bank that is strong financially and ethically.

    Cons

    There are employees who still hold on to the old ways of doing things and refuse to change with the times. Technology speed and efficiency could be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Matt is doing a great job. Roger is a wonderful leader as well.Pull the reigns back on Audit a bit and things will really be great.
