Wouldn't Imagine Working for Any Other Federal Agency

ProsSome 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
