    Excellent place to work.

    Assistant Vice President (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsMoody's has excellent work environment with a very reasonable work life balance. There is more co-operation than competitive environment. The company is growing with sufficient scope for moving up. Most of the positions and promotions are filled based on meritocracy, and not based on favoritism.

    ConsTechnology and processes are not the most advanced, and there are many areas that are less efficient compared to many other organizations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on selecting the right people has been very helpful - continue with this, and make sure that there is good and productive environment with sufficient freedom to make critical decisions.

    Fair Pay / Goold Balance between work and family life

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood balance work between family life. It is an interesting place to work. Analysts get a high level view of the industries they follow.

    ConsThe company has recently gotten a lot of bad publicity with the ratings of structured securities. It will likely take time for the company to regain momentum.
