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

Pros

The mission is admirable but what federal agency doesn't have a good mission?

Cons

One word: management. They do not listen to employees, treat them like absolute trash and many have problems with employees of different racial and ethnic backgrounds. This place needs an overhaul.

Advice to Management

Please treat your employees better.

    I worked at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is an up and coming agency

    Cons

    1. Most of the employees are well educated. There are a few nice people there. However, the overall culture is unfriendly.
    2. They are still finding their way. But, not accepting of advice from experienced persons.

    Advice to Management

    Accept that you are not experts.
