    I have been working at CFA Institute full-time

    Pros

    The best thing about CFA Institute is that no one is cynical or confused about the mission of positively impacting the investment management and capital markets industries by educating professionals on ethics and state of the art analytical approaches to understanding investments. The mission is bigger than the CFA credential program and everyone feels a part of it.

    Cons

    The organization still needs to professionalize in some processes since it has grown up over time from a small professional association and is now a global enterprise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce approval layers and let the staff make decisions more quickly.
