    Pros

    Working at the Fed is a rewarding experience where employees can expect a collaborative work environment where diverse ideas are encouraged and respected. The company has great benefits including zero deductible health plans and an onsite fitness center. The bank offers a stable work environment that most would be proud to call their home away from home.

    Cons

    The bank can be slow to incorporate the latest technologies and advances in the workplace. Change is slow and often met with resistance. Senior leadership recognizes this issue and is taking steps to change the culture around risk taking.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the employees - The Fed is a great place to work!!

    Pros

    Great benefits including health care, and retirement/pension plans. On site perks such as a cafeteria, Starbucks, and on site parking garage. Many learning opportunities and classes to take on your own time. Security is top notch. Long interview process, and multiple site visits required but worth it in the end (if you get the job).

    Cons

    Office atmosphere of gossip and negative comments. Others have expressed concerns about the retention of quality employees, and not being able to go to their management with issues.
