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
