    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I am going on 5 years with this company. My background is in consulting and I never thought I would find an organization that would make me want to stay. Their retire benefits are amazing and after seeing how so many companies are taking such things away, the FRB of Dallas continues to hold on strong. I work with a great group of people, who are committed and highly skilled. The people are accepting and willing to help.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is different from many fast-moving consulting firms. Slow to change, but undersatnd the need.

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

    Pros

    Bank operations are interesting, employees are hard working professionals, good technical support with computers, applications, and support operations. Audit training is fair and supportive of needed CPEs and continued development of skills and certifications. Opportunities exist to work throughout the Federal Reserve System including at the Board of Governors.

    Cons

    If you need frequent encouragement, a relaxed and creative work environment, and rapid advancement the Fed would not be your kind of employer. It is a highly intense, highly controlled, and somewhat harsh work environment.

    Pros

    Good collaboration; good support from senior management.

    Cons

    Higher level people will not associate with lower level personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If You are going to lay someone off ... first, give the employees a change to rectify the issues (assuming they tell you what the issue is) and allow for corrective action.

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Long term benefits from working as an Examiner at the Federal Reserve are enormous. Definitely get an edge up.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical structure. Communication to employees is minimal and on a need-to-know basis. Very political (office politics) organization - more so than others I've experienced. Salary is low in relation to the expectations of the position and in comparison to the FDIC and OCC. Despite having the resources, the technology of the Fed was substantially behind its peers.

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas as an intern (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.
