    I have been working at Fhlb Atlanta full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very professional and disciplined work environment, based on values and fundamental principles of serving shareholders. Competitive pay, good access to decision-making. Environment is cordial and friendly. Very competitive amenities such as free covered parking, workout facility, in-house cafeteria that includes healthy food choices, strong emphasis and paid time off for community volunteerism.

    Cons

    Highly regulated business with heavy focus on risk management, creating less room for focus on innovation and creativity. Midtown location can be a very difficult commute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to find ways to communicate and engage staff

    Former Employee - Banking Officer, Assistant Vice President, Senior Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Fhlb Atlanta full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong executive leadership, smart and intelligent focus on strategic growth and long term value for shareholders. Friendly atmosphere, organized and neat offices, employee cafeteria a plus, gym, and support services (in house printing services, top of the line copiers, computers, software support top notch) . Departments differ based on leadership in charge. Bright spots exist although personal training seems to be mainly lip service.

    Cons

    IT is in charge, dislocated philosophy of placing the cart before the horse (IT cut in house dedicated training staff although they build dedicated training classrooms for the Bank). Office culture does not focus on people. Overly outward focused on banking customers/regulators. Large degree of company politics, Annual performance goals are dis-aligned to calendar and approved in June and finalized for the year in October (???)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate 365 degree feedback, review statistics on turnover for each department, address culture issues, bring back dedicated IT training for supported software such as MS Office, maintain survey consistency (any formal survey where staff is asked to participate) across a predefined timeframe to allow for valued feedback (feedback is a gift, act on it), value and reward training,

    I worked at Fhlb Atlanta full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Thoroughly enjoyed my few years there. Unfortunately with the economic melt-down my position went down as well. Nothing anyone could do.

    Cons

    There is no such word as confidence when speaking to anyone in HR. Unfortunately I witnessed sabotage first hand within a department. That could have been the results of frightened humans. Who knows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build the morale within the Bank. Happy employees build successful companies.
