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

    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.
