I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Encourages attendance at industry related conferences, obtaining training to enhance skills needed for job, friendly work environment, great location for commuting.

Cons

Processes are hard to get altered with standard bureaucracy and overall it seems that the people are used to being set in the way things get done. It's hard to suggest new ideas and get the right people interested in them. New employee training is standard but could use to be tailored to each organization for clarity as to what is expected within the different orgs/teams.

Advice to Management

Urge people managers to really care about the progress of individuals on their teams. Progress plans are in place, but seem to be bloated with a lot of company-speak (or maybe they're just to generalized) to make it seem like progress is important.

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Jobs are challenging and you get the opportunity to impact the nation! People are really great and direct management is supportive. While this is a legacy organization, they are very innovative. There is a strong focus on work life balance and continuing education/professional development.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes a bit of time to get things implemented. Given the focus of the Fed, there are many rules and regulations, which are needed!, just be prepared that this is the environment.

    Great coworkers. Very reasonable hours. The education benefits are incredible (15k+ a year). I am concurrently doing a master's in a technical field while working full-time. My bosses have always been respectful for these demands and encourage me to take time off when necessary.

    Advancement opportunities are rare unless you are in BS&R or Statistics.
