 Basic Question - What do CFA's actually do?

I’m considering starting the CFA exams but I would like to know exactly what CFA’s do. I’d also like to know what they do that is different from CFP’s. I understand that the CFA process is far more rigorous than the CFP which is more of a generalist exam but I still have questions. I’ve done some basic reading but I thought I’d ask here as well.

Is it that the CFA works with larger institutions and the CFP with individual investors? Do CFAs tend to work for clients/institutions with higher net worth? Is there a difference between the financial instruments they work with? It is merely about the extensiveness of the training but that both do the same things? Are there significant differences in fiduciary duty?
