I have been working at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau full-time (More than a 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 Management

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

    I have been working at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau 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 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!

    I have been working at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CFPB is a rarity in the public sector: a newly created agency in a critical sector of the economy, charged with protecting consumers. CFPB offers unparalleled opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way to helping others. I've never worked with smarter, more capable people, many of whom share my deep commitment to the bureau's mission.

    Cons

    As a new agency, there are still a lot of processes being built. One side effect of working with brilliant people is that they can have strong opinions if they disagree, and continuing to refine role clarity and "swim lanes" can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep prioritizing the culture and steadily building processes and structures that help people to do their jobs; avoid the temptation to become a traditional bureaucracy.
