    I have been working at MBIA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It pays well and people are very professional. They also have summer hours, where you leave at 2:00pm on Friday

    Cons

    The company is running off. I am not sure the company will be around for more than 5 years. There will not be much growth for new employees.

    Pros

    Pension and 401k match is great, generous vacation time. Medical benefits are above standard as well. Summer 2 pm Friday's are a nice perk.

    Cons

    Company's future is uncertain since the credit rating downgrade. It will be interesting to see what plans management comes up with.

    I worked at MBIA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunity to restructure and dive deep into credits.

    Cons

    Location outside of NYC. Management that definitely promotes men over women - also more women have been laid off than men (about a 3 to 1 ratio - shocking)!

    Advice to Management

    Look at some of the women who have left, bring them back, support them. This is specifically true of public finance.
