Examiner (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 5, 2018
You can learn a lot at the SF Fed, however, promotions can be limited and difficult to get. The people are great to work with. Depending on the job people can travel anywhere from a couple days a year to well over 100.
Lead Business Analyst (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – July 19, 2018
Very helpful people work at the Bank. The atmosphere is conducive to working together. Management is excellent and fair. A typical day at work is usually enriching in one way or another, I enjoyed reporting for work each morning.
Senior Project Analyst (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – March 13, 2018
There's little drive to do more than what is required, but that means you get to leave at 5 and you don't have to take work home. Great for people with families, not great for motivated employees early in their career
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – November 12, 2017
Wonderful place to work.It is a fast pace atmosphere. Very hard working group of employees. I was promoted every year and received additional bonuses for hard work ethic. I relocated to Sacramento, Ca. I commuted for one year. It was wuite difficult. I opened my own Day Care Business and was very succesful. I really miss working for The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. I would love to be rehired if possible. I reaaly enjoyed assisting The Commercial Banks and solving Their problems with their accounts. I received excellent reviews from their customers.
Check Processing Clerk (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – September 25, 2017
The Fed was a great place to work. We had a wonderful chance to advance and on holidays the big bosses would work the food lines serving all of us lunch in the cafeteria. It was such a pleasure getting to meet them. We would take turns to help with the counting of money to be destroyed.
Operation/Technical Specialist I (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 12, 2017
Working for the Federal Reserve was a good experience. The Federal Reserve Bank is not a Federal Job as most think. The culture of the bank is to create a ONE Bank concept, this was just being rolled out in 2017. Not sure how it will work. Lots of younger management, tend to favor certain employees over others due to production instead of overall compliance and teamwork.
good benefits, good pay
favoritism of employees by management, unprofessional behaviors.
Accounting (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – November 8, 2016
Great place to work, great work life balance and benefits if you're not looking to advance quickly. Management plays favors so hard work and competency may not be rewarded, a lot of politics. The bank used to provide job security but not anymore.
work life balance, nice office location, great benefits
Cash operations (Former Employee) – Renton wa – August 10, 2016
A good company with average benefits for employees. Room for advancement with additional education requirements. Must be able to work with people in a stressful environment and report to management of any and all violations of fellow employees.
The best place to work. They listen and care for their employees.
Information Systems Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco, SF – April 30, 2016
I enjoyed working at the bank. They allowed me to think freely and implement new ideas and was rewarded generously. I had the latitude to manage my team and the data centers the way I saw best. They were like family. I had the ability to review new technology and implement it if I saw that it was beneficial to the Bank. We had yearly meetings with all the Managers to get together and have fun events. The Bank took care of their employees.
Great cafeteria and break/think area
Getting into SF and going through security everyday.
