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

Pros

Admirable mission and compensation structure is extremely competitive.

Cons

The CFPB, like most financial regulatory agencies, is grossly underrepresented in the number of racial/ethnic minorities it hires, retains and promotes to senior management positions. This results in a lack of diversity in decision-making, discriminatory treatment in work allocation and an extremely hostile work environment. It is not a secret within the agency that minorities have not fared well at the Bureau, however, its higher level management officials continue to ignore problems that have been readily identified, which is ironic given that the Bureau is so aggressively pursuing financial institutions for their violations of anti-discrimination laws.

Advice to Management

Diversity is not a "body count." Rather than count racial bodies, the agency should recalibrate its organizational structure to ensure diversity in decision making, work allocation, and employment opportunities within the agency.

    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.

    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.
