    I have been working at Federal Reserve Board full-time (more than 8 years)


    The pay is far more aggressive than what you'll find on the GS scale for government work. The Fed straddles both the government and private industry fence, so you can get the best (and worst) of both worlds. Merit increases have been solid (even through the financial meltdown) and year-end bonuses make holiday shopping enjoyable. The benefits are extensive; health stipends, employer-paid pension, and a 7% match on your 401(k). Plenty of time off options between vacation, personal days, and the "snow" days when the rest of government freaks out because it *might* snow. Telework has taken off and some areas are two-three days a week. Promotions are tough once you hit mid-career level as no one seems to leave. Hence, it a waiting list to move up in your current role.


    Best way to get promoted is to leave and come back after two years. Some divisions seem stuck in the 1950's (here's looking at you IT) and others prefer the bleeding edge. There is a fair amount of fiefdom and silos still exist. At times, it operates closer to a dozen private businesses (divisions) all fighting over the same scraps. Why? We turned over $100 billion to Treasury last year as "profit." Yes, some areas are content to let employees "retire in place" and get paid so long as they can still fog a mirror. Others run so lean an operation, the typical workweek is 7am-7pm, five days a week. Get your staffing levels right on both sides of that aisle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    360 reviews are long-overdue; there needs to be some form of peer/customer feedback. Employees are rated and "at risk" of losing their jobs every year; employees stuck with a bad manager should be allowed to "fire" the manager as well through some means other than quitting. Some managers are technically great, but have zero "people manager" skills. If I'm a technical expert, let me chase that path and leaves the management track to those who want it (subject matter experts should be allowed to make more than their manager - aka "dot com" era). If you want top talent, you're going to have to pay for it (better salaries, faster promotions, bigger bonuses, getting rid of knucklehead managers, etc.). I have every intention of retiring from the Fed. I believe in her mission and the "higher purpose" of what we do. I just want to be certain what I do matters. I don't need to be "private island" rich, but I don't want to live paycheck-to-paycheck either (which is very easy to do trying to raise a family in DC).
