      Pros

      Benefits like ample time off, flexible schedule(work/life balance), amazing pay, very engaging yet professional atmosphere, career advancement is built in. Benefits include pension, healthy retirement contributions outside of pension, best in class health, dental, vision, 6 weeks paid paternity leave, BONUS.

      Cons

      Bereavement leave is 2 days, kind of short for your parent passing, but pretty standard. There is a high stratosphere of influence at the bank, the structure isn't very flat in management. Working here people like to bring up unfounded conspiracy theories, so be ready for that at social events.

      Where ambitious people come to die

      Pros

      Work life balance Coworkers Coffee bar Cafeteria on site

      Cons

      The longer you stay, the less motivated you become. This work is extremely slow, it's not very meaningful, and there are way too many young, inexperienced managers. Extremely top heavy, slow to adapt to change, and they preach innovation. However, creativity being suggested to processes that have been in place for 30+ years isn't taken very well. Ambitious and creative minds should seek other work.

      Pros

      Nice building, benefit package, subsidized meals.

      Cons

      Pay is well below market, although they say benefits make up for it. Interesting name is total rewards. Not so much. Managers defer to their up-line and simply don't support their team. The red tape is awful. The managers are fake nice, especially when you give notice. This is consistent with a lot of people I know that left the company. They have a playbook and recite the same words to all that resign. Really disingenuous. And don't make a single mistake - it is never ever forgotten. They are also positioning themselves to do away with bonus pay at the end of the year. This is new but we were told on numerous occasions that year end bonus pay will be administered differently. This is their way of saying only the people we like are going to get a bonus. Play the fed game and you too can get promoted. Finally, this is the most conservative company in the US. They say we are successful because of our dress code standards. The fed is so out of touch with current industry best practices. It is the worst place I have ever worked. I resigned because I just could not take the culture, low pay, and horrid leadership (great respect for CEO and COO though).
