    I have been working at Federal Reserve Board full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Federal Reserve Board is quasi-government, which, among other things, means that they don't automatically adopt policies set by Congress or the President. It also has good benefits and amenities (gym, parking by lottery, etc.).

    Cons

    Unless you like posturing (rather than working) to get ahead, lots of bureaucracy, meeting about meetings, and occupying yourself with busy work that's only loosely related to what should be done, this isn't the place to be. The Board is very divided. Duplication of efforts is commonplace where interpersonal issues can't or won't be overcome. The fractures within the organization can make it difficult if not impossible to transfer to other divisions or units. This is a very political environment.
