I worked at CFPB as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Coworkers are bright and motivated. Bureau has a start-up feel. Open management structure. Doesn't feel overly bureaucratic. Management will listen if you have suggestions on how to do something in a different/better way than it is currently being done. Pay is competitive with private sector.

Cons

There is not enough staff for all of the work that there is to be done, so it can feel overwhelming at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at CFPB full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - CFPB goes above and beyond most other federal agencies to embrace a culture of teamwork.
    - Benefits and pay greatly exceed traditional federal agencies.
    - CFPB is very progressive towards telework and work/life balance.

    Cons

    - Orientation is rather poor and I found the place to be a bit disorganized.
    - Training is very much left to each employee to identify and advocate for approval.
    - Recent transition to union representation has been mixed bag.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Spend some time thinking about workflow processes and then document them into internal SOPs.
    - Each manager should be focused on providing training that is tailored to each employee's job.
    - Embrace full-time telework for more than just IT positions. Management must be flexible to acquire and retain talent.
