    I have been working at FINRA full-time (More than a year)


    FINRA offers opportunities for people in a broad range of professions - data scientists, compliance examiners, enforcement attorneys, other regulators, investor educators, etc. - to grow and develop within their respective areas while doing very meaningful work: helping to protect investors.
    Challenging work that is personally and professionally rewarding. Collegial environment where others are happy to share their expertise to help you learn. Competitive compensation and benefits. FINRA is renewing itself with a comprehensive review of its organization and operations, with an eye toward being the most effective and efficient organization it can be. FINRA is fully committed to a diverse workforce and inclusive work environment, offering a number of programs and benefits along these lines. Senior leadership is actively engaged in advancing diversity and inclusion goals.
    Overall, an expectation that you have an opportunity to contribute your individual perspective and expertise to the success of the organization, and your ideas and views will be heard.


    If you think that a non-for-profit, self-regulatory organization would be sleepy and slow-paced, this is not for you; performance expectations are set very high and the work can be intense.
    The organization is in the midst of very positive changes, and if you're not flexible, adaptable and willing and able to reinvent your work, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep reinventing yourself. Change is of course difficult on many levels, but essential to remaining vibrant, relevant and an attractive choice for people who want to make a positive difference in our markets and economy.
