Cons: everything else
Yes this is a brand new government agency, but thats all it is. It may be good for the public, but definitely not for the employees. There are no policies in place, and if there are some they are not followed. The management does whatever they want to do, and the Human Capital office supports them. The employee morale & culture went down the tubes. It started off great, but as they kept hiring managers from private sector, the agency took a deep nose dive.
I never experienced a government agency where the employees are backstabbing and cutthroat to each other. I have worked at another federal agency where the employees come to work, make the best of it and go home. At CFPB the employees are focusing on backstabbing to get ahead. CFPB is run like a ghetto operation! Stay far away. And the sad thing is that our tax money is paying these managers hundreds and hundreds thousand dollars. The average salary here is $100K.
