An Environment Full of Red Tape, run like a Gov't Agency.

Business Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

Pros- Good work like balance
- If you are efficient you can leave at a reasonable time
- Pretty standard hours for a finance firm for Business Analysts (9-5)
- Pay is ok.
- The building is very modern and clean.
- Slow-paced environment (if you like to take it easy because you refuse to be challenged and like to become complacent, which appears to be the case for roughly over half the people here)

Cons- Meetings, meetings, and more endless meetings.
--- 25% of the effort is PLANNING the work that you will do.
--- 15% of the effort is DOING the actual work.
--- 25% of the effort is CHASING DOWN people to review and finally approve of your work.
--- 10% of the effort is ANSWERING DUMB QUESTIONS for people who originally was supposed to have read your analysis document.
--- 10% of the effort is ARGUING with stakeholders weeks/months later to explain why your work was presented clearly and COUNTERING their accusations of gaps in your work.
--- 15% of the remaining effort is to wrap up your final document and send it off for even further signoff.

- A culture where management takes forever to make effective decisions.
- True superstars should look elsewhere. Your great ideas and strong passion for effecting change will not likely happen at Moody's. You will not be recognized here. You will like it here though if you like to settle down and do good enough of a job and just enough work to not get fired.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow BA's to provide reviews for their stakeholders and managers. Need to instill a culture of responsive feedback with extra discipline on quicker answers and decision making, not take a whole week to get a response from someone or require constant email reminders and messages to effect a response from someone.
