    I have been working at FHLBank San Francisco full-time

    Pros

    It could be more of a team player environment, but middle management seem to be absent.

    Cons

    I was there for a month and my work was expected to be done "yesterday" with little guidance. First week: I sat with the person in training for a few days; second week: I got access to computer applications; third week: this person was gone; and fourth week: she was gone again. I was expected to know 14 years of work in a month and management took her side. She was abusive and a bully; wanting things done to her standards.

    Advice to Management

    I think you need to replace complacent employees and really concentrate on employees that can make a difference. This employee obviously has a track record of bad behavior and bullying, but management will not do anything. Good luck!

    I worked at FHLBank San Francisco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Health Benefits, coworkers were great, longevity in the position

    Cons

    Worst VP Management, Good Ole Boy and Girl Network, AVP and above take credit for employees work, Micro-management by VPs, CEO allows for AVPs and VP to get their way versus holding to policies, VP sign contracts that benefit them versus company e.g. hotel rewards for conference hosted by the company

    Advice to Management

    Allow for your employees to do the right things with repercussions from the AVP and above, make everyone follow the policies with no exceptions, provide better bonus structure and not just for AVP and above, provide better benefits such as health benefits, dental benefits, snack benefits such a sodas or snacks

    New engaged CEO. Seems interested in the employees and creating energy and direction for the company. Very good work/life balance. Some managers truly care and provide an environment for growth.

    I worked at FHLBank San Francisco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people. Overall good working environment. I appreciated all of the opportunities there were at this company. My peers were very supportive.

    Cons

    Very stressful environment. A lot of lay offs for IT. There did not appear to be a very good relationship between and IT and their business partners.

    Advice to Management

    Management should take steps to improve the business relationship between IT and it's business partners. They should provide better communication to staff to let them know how we're doing in the eyes of the client.

    Steady work but not a lot of excitement. The company has a few high end meals. Pay was above average.

    A lot of contractors there and hard to become regular employees. No snacks or regular meals and a lot of paper.

    Advice to Management

    See the potential in every worker.
