I have been working at Moody's full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Highly intelligent colleagues. Most teams are fairly effective and are interested in getting things done. Intellectual acumen is valued. Common courtesy are a value.

Cons

The occasional bad apple is tolerated and sometimes spoils the whole bunch. There are unethical people just as everywhere who only care about hearing their own voice, and advancing their own careers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage ethical, collaborative and more behavior that adds business value. Those 3 things all go hand in hand.

    I have been working at Moody's

    Pros

    Good learning opportunity. Access to senior management of issuing companies and other intermediaries.

    Cons

    Limited upside in terms of promotion (no one leaves as people are comfortable). Therefore, management are dinosaurs and lack adaptive thinking and innovation. Tends to create a reactionary atmosphere. There is A LOT of fat to be cut i.e. many people coast, numerous positions that perform the same job functions, impact compensation. Compensation literally sucks (+40-50% margins are you kidding me? and that money is spent on worthless acquisitions).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please leave for the greater good of the institution. Your services and value add are outdated and dragging down the firm.

    I have been working at Moody's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good work life balance fold the most part, co workers are good to work with, junior people are relatively bright

    Cons

    no upward career progression at Moodys, middle management very average, no particular guidance from mid-senior mgmt, focus of senior management on everything but Credit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cut the red tape, focus more on the credit, cut the admin work and outsource IT and back office jobs to make the process more efficient.
