    Pros

    Challenging positions, excellent opportunities for advancement. Once you prove yourself, your reputation carries a lot of weight. On-site exercise facility and game room. Food service is excellent.

    Cons

    Sometimes projects require many overtime hours with no real reward except that upline management acknowledges your efforts. Work from home policy is more fair than it was a few years ago, but by far not fair across the board. Some positions are 100% work from home while the same position in another department or division doesn't offer that option.

    Advice to Management

    Work from home opportunities need to be fair across the board, in all districts and in all entities.

    Pros

    Cafeteria has good choices and food. People are nice and generally pleasant to work with. Work-life balance is a priority and the culture is laid back - perhaps to the point of a Con versus a Pro.

    Cons

    Mediocrity is the normal. Innovation is choked out by ignorance and complacency. Productivity blocks are put into place to punish creativity and "out of the box" thinking in the vein of "Security".

    Advice to Management

    If you going to run a software shop, run a software shop. Listen to your employees with experience.

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay for entry-level positions, management are all wonderful and great to work with. They have great leadership competencies and you can see that throughout the organization. I can't imagine a better Fed to work with and you do feel like you are making a difference in serving the public. Cafeteria with subsidized healthy options is also a bonus!

    Cons

    Things can move a little slowly due to multiple levels of review, but that is to be expected from an organization that needs to be risk adverse for the public's best interests.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a great job of recognizing performance, encouraging employees, and promoting personal growth regardless of position.
