Pros

Good work-life balance, opportunities to conduct credit research insulated from short-term market volatility

Cons

Very poor, non-responsive middle management that is primarily focused on compliance and regulatory issues, to the detriment of independent and market-moving research and analysis. Few opportunities for promotion based on merit. Everything is driven by seniority, which saps motivation and leads to many analysts just coasting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management does very poor job of communicating with staff, leading to an environment of fear and paralysis. Staff are rewarded for sticking to the status quo and innovative thinking and analysis are discouraged. This has and will continue to lead to group-think and ultimately poor rating decisions.
