    Pros

    Great work environment to be in, and your learning opportunities are endless. The insurance, retirement, and time off benefits are out of this world.

    Cons

    Travel can be tough at times. However, the work / life balance is getting better and better due to the leveraging of telecommunications.

    Advice to Management

    Put a little more of an emphasis on the benefits that we are sowing into the communities. It gets hard to remember the difference you're making at times, and this could be a great point of emphasis for the staff.

    Pros

    PTO, Great Benefits, Gym on site.

    Cons

    There is a extreme lack of growth for young professionals. The mindset is very conservative with promotions or hiring within. The bank is aware of the generation gap but does nothing to help young professionals to advance. Cash Department is a place young careers go to die.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to train and develop young employees.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good. Pay rate is fair.

    Cons

    Highly mechanical organization. Many cliques... external experience not appreciated. Promotes from within only with pretenses of external consideration...

    Advice to Management

    Consider and value external applicant's skillset and diverse experience... value can be added to organization from experiences other than the Federal Reserve!

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities and interesting work. Pay and benefits are very good as is the cafeteria.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in management and in senior levels leads to a stale culture that appears to be stuck in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times.

    Pros

    Great benefits, love the dining room and gym. Environment is lovely and the PTO is nice.

    Cons

    It takes forever to move up and when there is an opportunity it is already targeted for some one. Diversity at the upper levels are not to be found. African Americans need not apply for any meaningful job.
