I have been working at Moody's

Pros

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

Cons

The 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.

    I have been working at Moody's

    Pros

    Moody's has a laid back academic culture where work life balance is encouraged. Flexibility in work schedule is a big plus

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive. When you get a promotion, do not expect any change in scope of responsibilities or adjustment in compensation. Lot's of double standards for promotion guidelines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should really try and standardize promotion guidelines. They are beginning to lose meaning to a lot of people. Also should look more closely at compensation bands. Lot's of inequality in pay within the same department.

    I worked at Moody's

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere if you like that environment. The salary is not great, but decent. If you are new to IT, you will definitely learn some new things. Promotions based on hard work.

    Cons

    Where do I start. Getting a promotion means you get a higher title, but not more or different responsibilites/ tasks. Worked long hours, on the weekend, on call without compensation. No matter how much effort, time, and work put forth, the pressure would not be lightened?? The type of pressure was destructive, anti-growth, and often filled with anger. Management has a "what have you've done for me lately attitude" towards IT. You could be a supreme tech. It doesn't mean squat here - just that your a good door mat or should become one if you want to remain employed. Shoot first ask questions later mentality with issues, even after proof was found that the wrong person was accused of "dropping the ball". If one of their "own" made a mistake no matter how big, they called it an honest mistake. but God forbid if it was anyone else does, then you can count on seeing that on your perfomance evaluation. They company offered training but no training was allowed for the group and their were no growth opportunites. No motivation to take initiative by colleagues past what is minimally expected by management. Being skilled/smart, having seniorty is not valued. Extreme nepotism/favoritism. It was without a doubt the case here - If you were a certain ethnicity, not only did you get top salary, but you had the most opportunities / leeway / and pretty much got away with a lot of things. Like "extra" vacation time then what is allotted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put methods in place that will hold senior management accountable of the sub-groups they manage. Have a third party administer a survey to be taken by employees of those managers that evaluate the "performance of managers".
