    I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City full-time

    Pros

    Paycheck, Benefits, and Fridays off

    Everything else. Management doesn't care about the well being of their employees. Many people were severely depressed/anxious/suicidal.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage your people and some HR skills.

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Decent health package offered but does not constitute enough for the low salary or difficulties

    Cons

    Low salaries. Boys club. Favoritism shown greatly. Employee suggestions and requests for changes are fully ignored and demeaned. Has an identity crisis; not a government agency but likes to duplicate government actions to show 'solidarity'. Change their vision to match the current outlook instead of admitting a mission/vision failed.

  5. Decent Place to Work, Standardized Test is a Joke

      Pros

      Better than having no job.

      Cons

      Management picks favorites, and it has nothing to do with ability or hard work. The favorites can do no wrong. Those who are not favored are treated like garbage. Management is not above leveling unfair criticisms or even making downright false allegations against the unfavored.

      Pros

      Good benefits, generally good people to work with.

      Cons

      Sexist comments and sexual harassment are legitimate issues in some departments. Frankly, I don't believe the organization is very concerned with addressing these serious issues. I think the organization is more concerned with covering up bad behavior on the part of management rather than empowering employees to report inappropriate behavior. HR department is dirty.

      I have been working at Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Puts an emphasis on work life balance which is nice at an increasingly tech-based company. For a formal institution, the bank is a very social and supportive work environment. Management (in the tech areas) encourage innovation, and sincerely support it. Beautiful views from building, amazing cafeteria, secure workplace, available parking. Management is supportive of career development and education. Very diverse...

      Cons

      Company is experiencing growing pains as new tech company; regularly meet senior employees with under average knowledge of software best practices. Pay is under average for the area; benefits are good, but only if you work at least 5 years.

      Advice to Management

      Pay developers in KC what they are worth. Keep pushing innovation and asking employees to "challenge the process."
