    I have been working at Fitch Ratings full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The longer I work here, the more I learn. Yes, there are challenges, but they are interesting. The leaders on my team are really invested in my career growth and have given me opportunities to learn and do more. One person in particular has taken me under their wing to not only ask what I'm interested in doing , but also making sure I get the opportunity, or am prepared for the opportunity when it comes up. He is transparent and clear about where I need to improve while also pushing me to do new things. As a woman in finance, I find this to be a huge benefit for me down the road.

    Cons

    There are times when technology seems to be a bit behind the curve, but even there Fitch seems to be putting more time and energy in investing in new technology.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing and doing what you're doing, it's great to see the focus on women in leadership and I hope to be part of that one day.

    I have been working at Fitch Ratings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work/Life balance. There is not much stress and I have learned a lot during my time.

    Cons

    Benefits really took a step down in 2017. Premiums were increased as well as deductibles. Pay has been stagnant and many people have moved on. It has been difficult to move up as management seems happy to have experienced people leave and replace with less experienced (and less expensive) candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees and make it difficult for them to leave. I feel that more employees would be happier with pay increases and opportunities for growth.
