    I have been working at CFA Institute full-time

    Pros

    Excellent values and opportunity to grow the organization, the profession and personally

    Cons

    Main office in Charlottesville- I moved here to work at CFA Institute and the organization is rife with elitist academic types who have little real world experience. Simply knowing the definition of a term is not proven ability to implement - if more employees here understood this there would be more accountability for their words and behavior in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with investment and business experience and hold the opinionated, self-centered types accountable for the negative and at times hostile environment they create.

    Work on professional development and creating tracks. There are a lot of people who are very hard-working and they are being underutilized.
