    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    ~Great work environment and benefits ~Opportunities to learn through company initiatives ~Incentives to continue education ~Good coworkers and teams

    Cons

    ~Management either doesn't know what it is managing, or is overwhelmed with duties ~Young graduates with honor degrees are as disposable and McDonald's workers ~Difficult to trust upper management to have your welfare in mind when making deals and decisions ~Upper management avoiding direct communication with junior/new employees

    Advice to Management

    give clear guidelines for recent grads and younger hires to grow, or at least be able to stay with the company. It is really discouraging to be laid off at 25.


  2. Good learning environment but financially not so rewarding

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good exposure to high profile works even from junior level. Allows you to learn a lot under relatively less time-constraint environment.

    Cons

    The pay is sub-par to other rating agencies. Senior analysts tend to stay long-term, and therefore, there is less chance of upward movement unless portfolios of credits get reshuffled around internally.

    Advice to Management

    Junior analysts need to be compensated more in line with fair market value and be rewarded based on their performance for bonus. Due to lower pay, the quality of junior support will always be to a certain degree limited.
