Male dominated
Vice President (Current Employee) –  NYDecember 28, 2018
The few women in leadership believe they’re empowered but they’re not. They’re simply overpaid with executive titles in order to meet diversity standards within the Fed.

Favoritism
Law Enforcement Officer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 18, 2018
This was over all a good job with good pay and benefits. But there was also obvious favoritism going on. Some employees could make mistakes that would of got them fired, but the Law Enforcement Chief would cover up things to keep certain officers from getting fired.

Great Work Life Balance, Slow on Culture Change
Integrated Monitoring and Reporting Analyst (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VADecember 3, 2018
Great work life balance at the Fed, but we are slow to adapt to change. Keep that in mind when applying as a recent graduate or are looking for a more risk tasking company.

The most enjoyable part of the job
I/T Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 20, 2018
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you have co-workers that are always happy and willing to give a helping hand when needed. If you have downtime, you can go to the gym and play pingpong, basketball, badminton and many other sports. There's also a small weight-lifting gym which is great. Membership is only $5.00 per month. You can't beat that.
Pros
Environment, co-workers
Cons
Lots of overtime which can kill life balance, Management are self-centered.

Used to be better
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 16, 2018
The New York Fed seems to be an organization in slow decline. Some of the newer senior leadership is definitely a downgrade in talent in terms of decision making, delegation, execution, etc.

The organization hasn't found a way to successfully deal with the fact that it got top-heavy through the financial crisis, so there is a lot of jockeying for position. However, a new president was recently named, so maybe that will change things.

I think it is still a great place for someone to start a career. The organization's mission and responsibilities provide a great opportunity to learn about many aspects of the financial system. However, it no longer seems to provide the merit-based progression it once did, making it a less than ideal choice for a long-term high performer.
Pros
Still some hardworking, dedicated public servants working there.
Cons
Lack of future vision, move to quantity-based metrics of success has probably led to a decrease in quality of work.
