I worked at Fitch Ratings part-time for more than a year

Pros

Fitch is becoming the best of rating agencies. I was surprised by the exceptional skill of the workers, benefits and work life balance.

Cons

There is nothing worth mentioning.

    Former Employee - Associate Director in New York, NY

    I worked at Fitch Ratings full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    All the responsibility you can handle at a young age. Lots of exposure to executives in the industry you rate and also to the investors and bankers in the sector. Compensation is very fair, but being in NYC and so close to the big money makes you feel poorer than you are.

    Cons

    Washington and the SEC have so shackled the Big 3 raters as to make life here a constant hassle. 40% of your time or more will be spent on regulatory compliance activities. For this reason I quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't run a business based on a fear of litigation. Ratings is moving toward a government-run business. Diversify your revenue streams and move more toward being a pure research shop.
