    Pros

    Great place. Competitive pay and amazing benefits. GSE so long average tenure. Just like any place some management is subpar and some are excellent.

    I have been working at FHLBank Atlanta full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation. Good location in mid-town and free on-site parking. Lower and mid-level employees work well together. Most employees have banker's hours (e.g. 9 to 5 Mon-Fri).

    Cons

    Benefits and company structure have made the bank very top-heavy, creating log-jams for more junior employees that want to grow and develop. GSE creates a government-style mentality among many departments (e.g. silos and fiefdoms). Very weak culture. Telecommuting and other perks are available but frowned upon by senior "old-school" management.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and fix the culture with authenticity. Support a more progressive work environment to attract and RETAIN quality junior employees.

    I have been working at FHLBank Atlanta full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The location, benefits and pay is acceptable. One of the few companies that offer free parking in Midtown.

    Cons

    Management is horrible and the bank is doing nothing about it. Have managers in positions that have no clue about the department. At this present time, I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay attention to employee moral and listen to why people are leaving the bank. We are loosing great people.
