Great Place to work!!
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDMarch 20, 2017
I enjoyed my time at FINRA immensely. The management of FINRA, while focused on the goal of investor protection, works with the staff to ensure a pleasant place to work. Staff treated each other with professionalism. As with any job, deadlines had to be met and budgets held to. Overall FINRA was a great place to work.

Undergraduate Intern Program
Undergraduate Intern (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDDecember 24, 2016
Great way of getting your foot in the door. You have the ability to meet multiple members of management and start building a network for your career. They don't always have job opportunities available upon completion of the internship, but it will certainly give you good experience to carry with you.

good benefits, bad management
Various (Current Employee) –  VariousOctober 5, 2015
pros: good benefits, worklife programs
cons: bad management, ineffective policies, beaurocracy, stagnant wages, more work is expected every year for the same pay and not enough resources, worklife programs are not available to everyone with the same consistency, disconnect between executive understanding of how the company works vs the middle management way of doing things, high turnover

Generally good
Director (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCSeptember 4, 2015
FINRA is a regulatory organization which means that the bulk of the work involves either compliance or examinations. If that is the sort of work you like, it is a good place to work, where the hours are reasonable and the employees are treated well. At this time, there are some unknowns about management structure that can make it a stressful experience for some.
Pros
Employees are treated well
Cons
Slow promotions

Mortgage Licensing Agent (NMLS) (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDMay 21, 2015
About what you'd expect. Professional setting with minimal room for creativity or deviation. Typical day: arrive on time, punch the clock, drink coffee, answer emails, go to lunch, post-lunch nap, more coffee, more emails, go home anddddddd repeat.

Capital markets compliance
Senior Analyst - Market Regulation (Former Employee) –  Rockville, MDJuly 25, 2013
Great experience with a comprehensive 9 month training program. However, the work can quickly get monotonous as each team works with only a small set of rules they check compliance for.
