Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Director

I have been working at Fitch Ratings full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Nice, smart colleagues, comfortable work environment, pretty high level of intellectual stimulation but manageable stress level, some opportunities for advancement. Good level of compensation... relative to the amount of responsibility and stress. Flexible about working remotely and adapting work schedule to family responsibilities.

Cons

Lots of rules and regulations to keep track of, communication isn’t always great, beaurocracy and obstacles to advancement have increased. To some extent the company is a victim of its own success -... turnover among senior staff is low, limiting advancement opportunities for junior analysts.

Advice to Management

Nurture your best employees, communicate better, make sure procedural requirements balance regulatory demands and analysts’ ability to reasonably get their work done.

I have been working at S&P Global Ratings full-time

Pros

-Good enough salary to live in Manhattan -Great exposure to markets -Historically a great brand

Cons

-Company has re-invented itself in recent years (lots of new staff and new criteria) but could come up on top once the dust settles -"Sink or swim" mentality with new associates going into rating... committees. People are expected to learn things fast AND then apply learnings quickly case by case in each committee. -Company has so much data other market observers would love to have, but company does not do a good job in being "academic/white paper" driven with all the great data company has. Example: Are bigger companies more credit worthy just because of the fact they're big or is that a misconception?
