Senior Associate, Advisory

Need CFA exam advice! I recently left financial due diligence and moved to industry to a strategy and deals role. I studied for the CFA all of 2020 but my exam was canceled twice, resulting in me getting a refund. I haven’t studied since Nov 2020 but still remember some materials. I did not get a refund for the kaplan course. The deadline for November exam is today. Is pursuing the CFA worth it at this point? Im 27 with almost 5 YOE. Should I just do level 1 and will that help career-wise?

    Pros

    relaxed team culture fully remote, free to travel and work from where ever certifications and trainings easily available

    Cons

    no promotions or pay raises, even though inflation and rent is at all time high and what Kaplan continues to do is out source employees from India so they can pay them less and avoid giving employees who have been here for years any advancement. A lot of brilliant people who I started here with are now gone. I dont blame them! There are higher paying opportunities where leadership actually cares about advancing their employees. Not to mention giving standard of living raises that move with the economy.
