Pros

The Fhlb Atlanta offers a lot of great perks, such as educational reimbursement, a pension plan, 401k matching program, 2 weeks of sick pay, and 3 weeks of vacation that increases by an additional work after your fourth year. The atmosphere fosters a good sense professionalism and management is very understanding of personal/family obligations outside of work. It's a low stress, great working environment. There's also a sense of comradery between the people that work at the Bank. If you are in a place in your life where you just want to be comfortable with a job for several years and fly under the radar this is a great place for you. It's also a great place to start and gain experience. You will learn a lot from the people you work with because the Fhlb is staffed by a group with a wealth of knowledge and expertise.

Cons

Communication from management has improved, however it still needs improvement. Departments work in silos and there is little to no training provided. The bank does offer training and educational reimbursement, however you will not find job specific training, and you will not know about a change until you discover a problem that occurs from the change. Chances are that you will not get a promotion, and there are little opportunities for growth. If you are good at what you do, it's very likely that management will do what they can to keep you in that role or area that you are in year to year. If you are looking for accolades or constructive criticism on your performance, this is also not the place for you. If you still have some fire left in you to make your way up the corporate latter you might want to get a little experience from here, but look elsewhere if you want something more than stability.

Advice to Management

Improve communication, and offer more opportunities for personal growth of employees, and give credit and constructive criticism when and where it's due.

    Pros

    The Bank offers a great benefits package, along with a competitive salary. Employees do have the ability to further thier education, although the bank does not provide any real training in regards to the specific job or work done at the Bank (it is generally a "learn as you go" or "trial by fire" training methodology). Many of the departments I worked with were very helpful in mentoring in areas where my department interracted with thiers.

    Cons

    Communication is not very good from Management. New managers at the bank lack the appropriate skill set or mentoring to be effective managers, which results in staff leaving. Staff tend to be afraid to raise issues to management our of fear which prevents issues from being addressed in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    New Managers: There should be a training process (enforced by HR) for new managers, both those hired from outside who lack a demonstrated track record of managing a staff and for staff promoted to thier first management position.
