I have been working at CFPB full-time (more than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at CFPB full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    Pros

    A new (and 21st century) agency with a great mission: to educate and protect the American consumer. The talent, dedication, and passion of ALL employees at CFPB provides a tremendous working environment. No matter what your role is, you will find the opportunity to be innovative and establish a sound market that works for consumers. CFPB is the next big leader in public service.

    Cons

    Coming from the private sector, I was accustomed to a fast pace environment. While we are a few notches above many other agencies, we encompass the same hurdles when implementing change.
