Survey: NCUA employees slightly less satisfied; CFPB employees happier

Employees at the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) were slightly less happy in their jobs in 2021 than they were the year before, according to the latest “Best Places to Work in the Federal Government” survey released last week by the Partnership for Public Service.

On the other hand, workers at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) were noticeably happier in their jobs last year, the report found.

The partnership each year poses a series of questions to federal employees at each government agency. It develops a score based on answers to three questions surrounding employee satisfaction with their jobs and their organization, as well as whether employees would recommend their agency as a good place to work.

The 2021 survey of NCUA employees resulted in an overall score of 75.9, down from 79.4 the year before. That placed the NCUA ninth among 25 mid-size federal agencies and more than ten points above the government-wide average score of 64.5.
