    I have been working at CFPB full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The agency allows for you to get as involved as you would like to in your department. If you are interested in a particular group outside of your own, management is willing to create opportunities where you can work in that area without transferring fully.

    Cons

    Management politics, inconsistent messages from management and a lot of incompetent managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to create opportunities for staff to further their careers within the agency. Limit office politics by working to create a professional and civil work environment.

    Pros

    The agency has real belief in consumer rights and protections. As a result, they have gotten the attention of much of the financial world.

    Cons

    A general lack of organization and structure. Many new examiners didn't get opportunities for proper training, and most of the experienced examiners' workload didn't allow for much time to train them. Lack of transparency from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent, and look for ways to improve the work environment.
