Hi all,

Can anyone please tell me what working at FINRA is like? I know that it involves a lot of travel. How is the work life balance? Comp? Is the work interesting? Any advice would help.

Thanks

I don't know about the comp but my old boss worked for FINRA and now works in credit analysis... So that's one exit opp i suppose. He said it was incredibly boring work.

I think it also gives you a chance to make valuable contacts? Correct me if I'm wrong

You can make some contacts, sure, but there are far better ways of doing so.

really? Why do you hate it so much? I'm in product control now and have been for 7 years. Looking to make a career change.
