I have been working at Moody's

Pros

You get good exposure to issuers and their management. Some good lead analysts who help junior analysts develop their fundamental credit skills.

Cons

Pay is lacking compared to the work you do. Management is very stingy when it comes to handing out pay raises and bonuses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on career development and talent retention. If you could identify and nurture your top Associates you'd have a bright class of future lead credit analysts.

    Pros

    It is a good place to learn credit analysis especially on fundamental side (corporate credit) and learning how managements across the coverage spectrum thinks and operates since you have access to senior management at the debt issuing entities. Work life balance is also satisfactory here.

    Cons

    Compensation is not great even in good years compared to the rest of the financial services industry. As with any other company, politics can play a part in career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to take more steps to re-establish Moody's reputation on the main street as well as Wall Street, and need to take steps to ensure Corporate rating group which has performed consistently well does not continue to be tarnished because of Structured Finance group.
