Pros

Moody's is a great place to gain experience and build on your skills, the company is reputable enough to impress recruiters reviewing your resume; and all positions come with free on demand training courses for certain areas of your position.

Cons

Promotions are very hard to come by and are often awarded based on popularity rather than the person actually deserving it. It seems you build all of the experience and skills that you need to progress, but have to fight for a promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A documented promotion policy for non-officer titles should be available to employees so that they are more aware of what is expected in order to progress to the next level.

    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.
