    Pros

    - Positive mission
    - Talented, passionate employees
    - Phenomenal benefits
    - Regular training opportunities available

    Cons

    - Confused company culture that continues to evolve/develop
    - HR department lacking with little to no structure or framework in place concerning compensation and performance reviews
    - Very limited opportunity for career growth

    Advice to Management

    In addition to great benefits, invest in your employees up front in terms of compensation. Establish a structure that allows for career advancement to avoid frustrated employees who inevitably seek employment opportunities elsewhere.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at CFA Institute (Charlottesville, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from their recruiter a few days later requesting a phone interview. The phone conversation lasted about 25 minutes and was solid. In a day or so, I was invited for a face-to-face 30-minute interview with the recruiter. That time again was solid. He asked usual behavioral, experience, and qualification questions. At the very end, when we were both standing to leave, he asked.......below. The thing is, I present myself very professionally, and if anything, am more than qualified for the job.
