    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is average. Benefits are relatively low cost and high value. Job security is good in most departments. The people are mostly friendly. Diversity is not just a word here. You can make a career if you don’t mind waiting forever. The bank will provide opportunities to develop your career.

    Cons

    Procurement policies outdated and frustrating to work under. Besides the bid process itself, forget any prior working procurement/sourcing knowledge you have. It will be useless. Procurement is the lone supply chain function at the Bank.

    There is a lot to be satisfied with working at the bank. With that said, the bank banks on your complacency to just accept the great benefits and job security. You can be a high performer and you will be in the same position for years upon years unless are willing (and have the competencies) to move around to different departments. I guess this is only a con if you actually want to progress you career. This is my observation for the financial management and procurement department.

    Area parking very expensive. 8 year waitlist for onsite parking.

    Advice to Management

    None
