I worked at Fitch Ratings full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Knew their strengths and played to them
- European working style - easy hours and good vacation

Cons

- Their two strengths, structured finance and bank ratings, helped cause the 2008 financial crisis and their revenue base was probably hard hit by it.
- Not as serious about the non rating products and services yet had a global team around it
- Low pay compared to the other Ratings agencies
- Limited career opportunities for advancement and development

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Get a game plan together and define career paths for employees

    If you enjoy financial analysis, it will be hard for others to understand that you actually like your job.

    I have been working at Fitch Ratings

    Pros

    -Great people to work with, who are social, willing to explain things you may not understand, and are confident enough in their opinions and colleagues to defend their point, but also see the point of view of others.
    -The educational and continued-learning benefits are substantially greater than other companies I have worked for.
    -Very accommodating between work and personal life, as I've come to understand it and have come to infer from others. There will be times when you have to work your butt off although it never feels forced, and other times when coworkers will be asking "Why haven't you taken a vacation yet?"

    Cons

    Compared to the workflow in other industries, there aren't a whole lot of downsides, but there are definitely busier portions of the year. Depending on which industry you cover, expect to be a little overwhelmed during year end and quarterly financial releases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a great job, and it's refreshing to work in a setting that bolsters both career and personal growth. Not many places nowadays that instill loyalty to your company, but Fitch is one of them.
