Excellent work/life balance; poor career development

Associate Analyst III (Current Employee) New York, NY

Proswork/life balance is the best you will get in finance while working on deals
people are friendly and approachable
can learn a lot if you take responsibility for your own development
access to executive teams/bankers, although you can't "network" with them
if you want to learn a lot you can, if you want to just coast you can

Consthe pay is extremely low
for associate analysts your development depends greatly on your analyst
promotions are hard to come by, and you need to be working at the next level for some time before even being considered
lots of people just coast and it hurts morale (along with below market pay)
hard work does not mean more pay or promotion it merely puts you in the conversation
at the lower levels if you stay too long, you will get stuck here
management is very unclear about promotion process (will mislead you to keep you chasing the carrot)
associate analysts get stuck doing a lot of legwork due to increased regulation
lots of senior people who collect big checks just coasting, noticed by younger hard workers
very little turnover at the senior levels
very poor technology

Advice to Senior Managementwork on retaining talent at the younger levels
improve technology
think about trimming the fat on the upper levels

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Strong work-life balance, enjoyable work atmosphere, great place to start a career

    Associate Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

    I have been working at Moody's full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Good work-life balance. Team-oriented culture. Managers are usually responsive and accommodating to concerns or goals of analysts.… Cons: Bonuses are relatively small. Some regular tasks are more cumbersome due to increased regulation. Processes vary across departments and across groups, which creates inefficiencies and… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
