    Former Employee - Associate Bank Examiner in Dallas, TX

    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.

    Former Employee - Procurement Sourcing Manager

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good collaboration and communication; support from senior management (although that support was not really there. Lots of compliments ... but, I question the validity of those comments

    Cons

    Being released with no explanation whatsoever and no opportunity to rectify what the problem was. Generally, the policy is three strikes and you are out. I received one strike for reasons unexplained to me. Unfair and unethical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there is a problem ... identify it to the employee and afford the employee an opportunity to rectify the problem. Especially those employees that worked well over 60 hours a week for two years, receiving compliment after compliment.

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