I have been working at FINRA full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pension package ( no longer available), 5% 401k Match, stressless environment.

Cons

Not enough work to keep me engaged. The more work I ask for it seem the less I get. Watch your back here. It's the only stressful part of the job. Who's getting thrown under the bus today. Promotions only go the the favored few or rown nosers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lots of dead wood. Managers especially. They want to get the largest staff the can even though the work for them is minimal.

    I have been working at FINRA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    > Great Benefits, including 401(k) of 4% to 6% match each year and Pension for Employees of 1+ years (but no longer available to new hires)
    > Great place to work for those who don't want to work hard, but still get paid for it

    Cons

    > Hires and Manages employees in a manner like the Federal Government
    > A place to come and die in your career
    > Opportunities for advancement only for those who are a part of the "select" group or related/connected to someone in Sr. Management.
    > CFOs personal employment center for his friends and family
    > No access to personal internet-based e-mail accounts (g-mail; yahoo; etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating all employees like real people. Quit looking out for your own interests alone, and start looking out for the interests of your employees, as well.
