    I have been working at Moody's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance; fascinating issues at crux of financial system; culture is relatively collegial.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre for financial industry; career advancement is stalled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on conflicts inherent in business model. Lay off the intense, recent focus on "process"; it's killing the geese that lay the golden eggs.

    Great stable, profitable company (rare today) but an extremely consensus driven organization, that has to work for you..

    I worked at Moody's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great stable, profitable company (rare today). good place for someone right out of school. Opportunity to learn about deals/transactions at a less than banking hours, but you get less than banking pay (in exchange for stability).

    Cons

    Within CFG, extremely consensus driven organization, no room for creativity or original thinking. You get ahead via "special projects" without that, you'll need to work 2-3x as much or and your promotions will take 2-3x as long. It doesn't matter if the companies you cover are high volume, busy companies, you won't get any points for staying on top of them without the "special projects"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better, more equitable, transparent incentive structures. There are some people there that just want to coast, that kills morale, that only further speaks to the inequity of the place and ruins the reputation of the firm to outsiders.
