Pros

Good balance between personal and business life, though may depend on resposibilities
No unneeded pressure, good place to retire
There is some space for professional growth or even career change
They pay for training courses

Cons

It's difficult to get appropriate compensation as your title and/or responsibilities grow - must fight
Luck of pressure may mean less chances for growth or need for self-education, but it depends on position

Advice to Management

Frequent changes in management or directions don't promote morale.
Keep eye on proper rewarding of hard-working talents or you lose them.

    Pros

    You get good exposure to issuers and their management. Some good lead analysts who help junior analysts develop their fundamental credit skills.

    Cons

    Pay is lacking compared to the work you do. Management is very stingy when it comes to handing out pay raises and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on career development and talent retention. If you could identify and nurture your top Associates you'd have a bright class of future lead credit analysts.

  2. good place to gain some experience but enough negatives (highly depends upon group)
