Pros

-Great work/life balance

-Good place to start or end a career, not progress your career midway

Cons

-Very low pay compared to other financial firms
-Known for having incompetent, untalented employees
-Unfairness in promotions

-Too much power given to managers - if you have a bad manager, it is a dead end job

Advice to Management

Don't promote people based on favoritism
Do promote and recognize employees who may be members of groups that may not be part of business lines

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is not an issue. Hours are quite reasonable. Pretty stable environment without fear of getting caught in a across the board layoff-Good Job security

    Senior mgt is very accessible and keeps everyone up to date to company/industry developments

    Cons

    No means of growth beyond your current job description in support functions. Do not expect to come in and transfer to another role/department.
    Moody's brand value has taken a hit over the past couple years. Will take some time to earn back the respect of the financial community.

    Team concept is overshawdowed by individual interests.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the Growth/Development program. Encourage job cross training

    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 Management

    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.
