    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I highly recommend that it is a very good training source for the future.

    Cons

    Like we said then and now - 'There's this way and that way, then it's the Fed's way'. Enough said.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always remember you are there to protect the american people and the economy and control the banks, not to hob-nob up with them but regulated them to ensure that they don't abuse the american people or the economy.

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Caliber of collagues is high. Benefits, compensation and time-off benefits are excellent. Better than any other place I have been. There are fun expos and meetings all the time. There is a lot of career development from the word go.

    Cons

    It is a somewhat conservative environment, and long-term employees complain incessantly about bureaucratic methods.

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and conveniently located in an easily accessible location. The environment is very calm which makes it easy to get in the zone to get work done. There are also a lot of options to do when you are looking for a break.

    Cons

    Advancements are very slow. Policies are strict. I am an intern and there may not be a position for me and I'm only allowed to work 15 hours a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great!

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta full-time

    Pros

    The benefits package is excellent, with pension and IRA. The people are great to work with and people tend to work here a very long time.

    Cons

    for many, it takes a long time to advance because turnover is so low. There are very few fast promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to embrace change. While tradition is great, a younger workforce needs newer tools to succeed.

  7.  

    Less impressive the longer one works there

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta

    Pros

    There are great benefits offered.

    Cons

    Very few opportunities for advancement; senior management has their heads in the clouds; some areas have horrible turnover and yet no one does anything about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because you thought someone did a good job at 25 doesn't mean that they will succeed at every job given to them.
    HR badly needs someone in charge that actually knows something about HR.
    Need to reinstate 180 degree management reviews as there are some horrible people in mid level managerial roles.
    One particular senior person should have been let go months ago due to a colossal failure.

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta full-time

    Pros

    work life balance, free gym, benefits

    Cons

    good-ole boy southern company; make 1 mistake and senior mgmt. knows about it immediately and you have a red X on your forehead for your entire career. People don't forget anything .... managers will not hire you for their open position if they have HEARD something negative about you. there is zero forgiveness there. very much like a cult, tight fraternity. heavy discriminatory actions and favoritism. technology is non existent. very backwards company. very inconsistent with their policies. they will provide "exceptions" at their own discretion and for who they "like"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get in touch with your staff

    Pros

    Opportunity to cross train, your career growth options are only as limited as your own imagination. Typical careers span decades here so job stability is the norm.

    Cons

    Too many process redundancies, administrative overhead is high, technological environment is still trying to catch up to industry standards.
