    I have been working at Assured Guaranty full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Hours are not crazy unless there is a pressing deadline. Depending on where you are in the company, you may or may not have good upward mobility.

    Cons

    The company is in a bit of a quagmire. The main line of business (muni bond insurance) is very slow, resulting in little to no growth in the top and bottom lines.

    Pros

    The leaders at Assured Guaranty have all been there forever, usually in the scope of 20 years. They're smart, savvy and interesting people. One or two of them are your typical chauvinistic, egotistical washouts. But as a whole, they're a solid group.

    Cons

    Sadly, most people working here at the AVP/VP level are a joke. It seems that luck opposed to ability has landed a lot of people in jobs that they will never leave, regardless of their incompetence, because they are sincerely not smart or educated enough to land another job. And since everyone has been there forever, there's somewhat of 10+ year cult that is completely impenetrable - regardless of how poor the decisions they make are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of the people you don't need, even if they've been there 15 years. I witnessed a number of bright minds move on because they were outweighed by dust collectors.
