    I have been working at Federal Reserve Board full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits - 401k, health insurance, pension, fitness facility & cafeteria. Pay is pretty competitive - maybe a little on the lower side starting off. Working from home is available to more employees when weather conditions are poor.

    Cons

    Many supervisors are very young so you are their learning field.

    Advice to Management

    Management has improved a lot through the years. Overall, they do a good job.

    I worked at Federal Reserve Board full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get what you put into it. Economists work really hard and will give you interesting projects once you've earned their trust. RAs aren't expected to work extremely long hours. Management is very flexible about vacation/telecommuting as long you're not asking for time off immediately before an FOMC meeting.

    Cons

    -- As expected from a place like the Fed, there was a lot of office politics between the divisions and some between sections.
