    Pros

    -Great benefits, 401k and time off. 9/80 Schedule (every other Friday off)-Tuition Reimbursement-Excellent professional development- unlimited learning opportunities through firm classes.
    Decent technology-Exposure to hot button items facing financial institutions today.
    Ultimately- you are a public servant. This is reflected in your salary...

    Cons

    -Pay is low. Examiners pay scale is b/t 48-85k depending on your experience. Mgrs make just under 100k. Maybe slightly higher if they have a specialty.  Don't bank on making six figures unless you are an officer. That can take over a decade- unless you come in with tons of experience. If you come here- your best bet is to come as a specialist- for the best compensation. Honestly, this would be the best job if they could bump the pay about $20-30k.

    -Little to no career advancement. Don't bank on becoming a mgr or supervising examiner (equiv of mgr) until 8-10 yrs of serivce at best. To be fair, this is mostly due to the small size of the bank and the district it serves; however if you read other Fed bank's websites (NYC, Rich), they all note the same issue. If you are ambitious, fast paced/A-type personality and want to move up relatively quickly- this is not the place to do it. Not at all.

    -Travel. You live on the road mostly. Usually to crappy towns 2-3-4 hours outside of Phila. Good thing is that you can accumulate enough points on your hotel rewards to take advantage of the great time off. Hope your older like me and your kids are grown and out of the house.....

    Think about it this way: If you want money, recognition, and dynamic environment- Don't come here.If you want  great professional development, work life balance, good people, slow pace and to serve the public- this is it.

    Advice to Management

    Create more rotational opportunities for examiners.
    Pay more.
    Create better advancement opportunities.
