    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid benefits, educational and training opportunities. Big company travel chances if you're in the right department. Pensions (whoa!) and a good 401k match.

    Cons

    Old world culture at all levels. For a large company, so many silos you'll never find your way out. Tough to get buy in for anything. Tougher to get cooperation and teamwork. Sense of privilege and lethargy. Overall, not a pleasant place to stay unless you just kind of resolve to go with the flow.

    Advice to Management

    Change is not a word that's ever really been embraced. Fiefdoms will always abound. You're not making the impact you think. You don't need to take a hard look at yourselves, you need to learn to work together. Take a look at Barney and learn how the kindergartners do it. Do real evaluations of employees. Make people work, contribute, and not coast.

    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and excellent work life balance. Nice gym.

    Cons

    Extremely slow to change and not very innovative. Not a good environment for someone who is motivated. Many employees generally lack ambition. Very hard to fire incompetent employees.

    Advice to Management

    Only reward employees who deserve it.
