What's working for FINRA like?

Rank: Chimp | 4

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.

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