    I have been working at FINRA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Benefits and work-life balance are excellent. A+!
    - Most departments are flexible about transferring.
    - Average employee sticks around for 7 years.
    - Employees are knowledgeable and experienced.
    - Mid-level managers are very caring and organized.
    - There is a shift to retain new and young talent.
    - Standard industry base salary.

    Cons

    - Senior leadership out of touch with employees.
    - Few promotion opportunities and bureaucratic.
    - Too many meetings without objectives.

    Overall, the good outweigh the bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talented people will flock elsewhere if management continues to be stingy about bonuses, promotions, and even the little things like travel expenses and holidays (usually a departmental problem).

    A friend recommended me for the position, went to an basic interview going through my resume. I had very little experience in anything finance and my major was not relevant. I explained how my personal investing skills would be relevant. Got an email about 3 weeks later to be hired.
