Positive Outlook

I worked at CFP full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Well defined connection between core values, mission and annual goals/ strategies all the way down to day-to-day operations.

Cons

Office politics could get obnoxious at times, and some of the personalities at the top are a bit much to be exposed to on a daily basis. It is difficult (though neccessary) to listen to opinions on every little detail from the 70K+ advisors that make up the CFP population.

Advice to Management

Choose outside consultants carefully. Some do more harm than good.

  1. "Learned a great deal however consistent, thoughtful leadership was lacking throughout my experience."

    Pros

    Working with good people who do good work on behalf of the American public. Good location. Great environment (aesthetics). Relatively small staff.

    Cons

    Senior staff are largely incompetent. Very poor communication between departments due to senior staff's territoriality. Far too much "smoke and mirrors" for so small an organization.

    Advice to Management

    Be authentic. Be confident - equally aware of your ability and fallibility. Exemplify the organizational values. Lead by example. Institute 360 feedback.


  2. "Maybe things have changed."

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CFP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice place to work, people are smart. Great location for food. Lots of food choices. Close to Chinatown. Close to subway.

    Cons

    No flex time, CEO is moody and treats staff poorly. Sub par benefits.

    People have quit in the past. On the spot.
