Pros

Salary. Higher than your average government job. The enhanced benefits are good, but you can get the same benefits with other federal regulatory agencies if not better.

Cons

There are no plocies in place, no structure. Hard to get a definitive answer. The employees arent treated well.

Advice to Management

Instead of being a know it all which you arent, treat the employees with more respect

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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