Fhlbsf
SR. HR GENERALIST (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 4, 2018
If you started working here 30 years ago, you had a great, kushy ride. Now, it's a blast from the past. No flexibility in hours, no working from home, old fashioned tools and resources, HUGE disparity between executive pay and staff pay (yet staff are the ones that do all the work - and there is a LOT of work to be done). If you are hired in as VP or above, this is a good place for you financially. If you are not, look elsewhere. But - Exec's - beware of the politics and popularity game. In our economy today, the FHLB's are no longer needed yet they still have an implicit guarantee from the Fed and don't need to pay corporate taxes. Seems like a waste of our money, doesn't it?
Pros
Good Healthcare benefits and decent pay
Cons
No growth or learning. No flexibility. No innovation.

Compliance Consultant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 27, 2018
FHLBSF is a very politically charged. Not much career growth or structure. Can be very challenging to learn because not much training is offered. Workplace culture is just OK.

Risk Avoidance is #1
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 16, 2017
Two things are absolutes at FHLBI, be ready for change and avoid risk at all costs. Those concepts govern most every role and are part of the culture. Not a bad place to work, but expect to follow procedure to a T and more of a wash, rinse, repeat type job generally speaking. If you are looking for a slower paced role that doesn't require 80 hours a week this is the right spot.
