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

Pros

Some of the best and brightest people I've ever had the chance to work with. The people here are top notch, truly collaborative, and amazingly passionate about the impact they're having on the lives of everyday Americans. Coming from the private sector into public service, the CFPB created an environment that was full of open arms. Someone is always willing to help, and there's an awesome appreciation for new and diverse perspectives. I've grown so much professionally in just a short period of time.

Cons

It's the federal government, so it can be a bit wonky, lot's of new rules to learn. No frills on the office space (good for tax payers!), but totally worth it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing. Focus on the long game, and don't allow the winds of politics distract you from the prize!

    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.
