Pros

Very relaxed environment--sometimes too laid back. Can get boring at times during slow stretches. Great work-life balance. never feel like you're stuck in the office for too long.

Cons

not very exciting. don't promote talent from within. it's a great place to work if you're a seasoned veteran: you get great hours, geat pay, and it's not too stressful. however, if you're a recent grad i would steer clear. they tend to use entry level analysts and associates without any intention of promoting them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

learn to incubate talent. moody's loses a lot of smart talented people to buy-side firms and banks because they refuse to offer any sort of professional advancement path. the pay could also be better.

    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.

    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.
