    I have been working at FINRA

    Pros

    It is a very laid-back atmosphere and the level of work is challenging. It can get somewhat monotonous with specific filings but overall very interesting work.

    Cons

    As mentioned above, can get a little boring because filing the same types of documents. However, each examination brings new types of transactions.
