    A great place to work if you enjoy a lot of process and like to attend meetings.

    You may get laid off without advance notice due to a "job elimination" decision.

    I worked at FHLBank San Francisco full-time

    Pros

    There where great coworkers and a few benefits (such as gym reimbursement) that made it OK to work there. Very good work life balance (they don't work you to hard-but they also don't reward hard work).

    Cons

    Zero growth at the company. Low pay compared to the same position in other companies. Things are so bogged down with process that it becomes very difficult to effect any change. Zero promotions or reward for hard work or trying to effect positive change (hard work is discouraged).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is very little involvement from executives with middle management.

    Pros

    ok place to work to retirement

    Cons

    senior management have no idea how to run a company. Run by lawyers; everything is a powerpoint presentation that is far from what is actually going on. project managers & management have no idea of what is going on and contort the truth to their own means.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get people that know how to run an organization not ones that can litigate. Get project managers and managers with ethics.

    I have been working at FHLBank San Francisco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are some good people there. Good stable company. Good benefits. A lot of people stay many years.

    Cons

    Desktop Support area - bullying, dishonesty, no team spirit, truly dysfunctional. Don't ask questions about the environment! They will fool you into thinking they are a good team spirited bunch, but they lie. I was told in my first week to watch my back. They were right. Same thing happened to the last 3 people in this role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should learn to listen and investigate when they are unformed of dishonest employees. HR's comments "Oh, it must have just been a mistake because they are really nice people". Fire the abusers, they are poison to the firm and it's employees!

    Fun projects to work on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get feedback from employees to find out what's going on.
