    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits are terrific. Additionally, if you have a poor skill set there’s a high likelihood you have a cushy spot and won’t have to worry about layoffs.

    Cons

    Where to begin. This place is a time warp to 1952. Results do not matter. Perception is the only thing that is considered important. If you’re polished, a sycophant, and incompetent, you’ll probably get promoted. But if you’re a driven professional that hates telling clueless management what you do all day (while they fret over whether you’re in your seat by 8 AM), and seeing your skills squandered this is probably not the place for you.
