    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Cafeteria is subsidized and full of selection. Met bank CEO. Field trips. Friendly, and very very intelligent coworkers. Lots of mentoring for how to climb the latter. Some people are hired during the internship.

    Cons

    Little chance of being hired on in the IT group, because it's just not entry level work. Not as much leadership responsibility as I would like. Like most internships I'm sure, lots of down time. Many restrictions on computers.

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas as an intern

    Pros

    If you want a place to work where you will find the kindest, most helpful coworkers, the Dallas Fed is where you need to be. On top of that, they offer all kinds of classes for employees to learn new skills, the benefits are outstanding, and they really value having a work/life balance. It's public service, and we're all on a team to strengthen the economy and stay involved in our local community.

    Cons

    It's a very large institution with a couple thousand people, so you may not get the complete small family feel you want if that's what you're looking for.

    Pros

    The staff is very professional and extremely knowledgeable.
    Tons of help if you're ever stuck on something
    They will involve you in all meetings and projects.

    Cons

    Software was somewhat outdated, but still functional.
    The audit department is a rough department to be in, but that's just anywhere.

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    My summer at the bank has proven to be one of the most rewarding experiences yet! I can honestly say that I loved coming to work every day! Not only would I look forward to spending time with my co-workers, but learning more about the functions and processes both specific and non-specific to the bank. My work, which was engaging, challenging, and meaningful, provided me with an advantageous skill set that I have been able to strategically leverage and pragmatically utilize since my time at the bank. With the conclusion of my internship at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, I have walked away with lifelong friends, lucrative professional connections, and inimitable knowledge that could not be found anywhere else!

    Cons

    While the environment is not incredibly fast-paced, the work-life balance is unmatched by any other organization! The bank not only provides a number of employee incentives (access to onsite fitness center, fitness classes, cafeteria, and free garage parking), but ensures that employees are safe, comfortable, and happy!

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work life balance and compensation plans. Lots of breathing room is afforded to senior level employees with ample opportunities available for vertical advancement. As a quasi-governmental institution security is tight, so employees should feel secure in the building. Yet, despite the high level of security, screening is also efficient. Also Thursday barbecue is surprisingly good. Another perk is the beauty of the Dallas campus given the upper level gardens and gallery of artwork/sculptures.

    Cons

    Where a great measure is given a great measure is expected. Executive and senior management expected high quality work product from research staff.
