The SEC is a bipartisan Commission consisting of up to five Commissioners appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. The President designates one Commissioner to serve as Chairman of the Commission. The SEC’s mission is to protect investors; maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets; and facilitate capital formation. Accordingly, as outlined in the SEC’s Strategic Plan, the SEC’s goals are to focus on the long-term interests of our Main Street investors; recognize significant developments and trends in our evolving capital markets and adjust our efforts to ensure we are effectively allocating our resources; and elevate the agency’s performance by enhancing our analytical capabilities and human capital development. The SEC oversees the nation’s securities markets and certain market participants, including broker-dealers, investment companies, investment advisers, clearing agencies, transfer agents, credit rating agencies, and securities exchanges, as well as organizations such as the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board, and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. The agency’s functional responsibilities are carried o...ut through five divisions and 25 offices, each of which is headquartered in Washington, DC. The SEC also has 11 regional offices located throughout the country.
The SEC is considered a mid-sized federal agency, with 4,350 employees at the start of FY20. The SEC offers a competitive compensation and benefits package. In additional to standard federal benefits (i.e., escalating annual and sick leave, shared premiums for health, dental, vision, and life Insurance), we offer additional benefits related to child and elder care support, student loan repayment, generous retirement matching, transportation subsidy and many more benefits to support employee growth and development in our workforce.
