Experience of AAs is highly dependent on your group/team.

Former Employee - Associate Analyst  in  New York, NY
Former Employee - Associate Analyst in New York, NY

Pros

Your experience in highly dependent on the competence of the senior analysts you work with on a daily basis. In general, most analysts are extremely knowledgeable and you can learn a great deal from them.

Cons

Compensation is not inline with the workload expected of Associate Analyst. There is limited opportunity for advancement within the firm because the senior analysts tend to be less active in career movement than other financial firms. Dealing with compliance and regulatory issues are constant hassles.

    This company sucks despite my successful multi continent career at Moody's

    Former Employee - Associate Analyst in New York, NY

    Pros

    International presence, access to senior management, access to regulators, international opportunities

    Cons

    Management is a joke, pay is extremely uncompetitive and cost culture trumps any achievements you may have. I would highly recommend looking elsewhere. Even if you're running laps around people, they'll find a way to give you a lower performance rating than you would otherwise garner to prevent giving larger bonus. Not just my experience, but pretty common across the board, globally. You can exceed expectations any for 5 years and not get promoted, even at junior levels.

    Ok for a year or two out of college, or a place to let your career wind down while getting some level of pay, but that's about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't know where to start.

    Expect to work long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think many groups are under staff.
