Moody's used to be much more revered, now we are defending our actions.

I have been working at Moody's

Pros

It's not as stressful as working for an IB. Although work is still plentiful and the hours are still long.
People are respectful and courteous.
Can balance work and life.
Good place to learn and develop skills.

Cons

Compensation is not competitive among Wall St firms. Because we are not really a Wall St firm.
When I first joined the culture was very old school very laid back. Over the past 6 yrs it has changed into a faster pace, profit driven company.
Most professionals have offices and this makes the atmosphere feel very isolated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let's stop defending what we did in the market and start leading.

    I have been working at Moody's

    Pros

    - Great work life balance
    - Good benefits
    - Opportunity to meet senior executives of covered companies if you are in the ratings side
    - Good name to have in resume
    - Access to a sea of research materials and models if you want to self-learn

    Cons

    - Poor managers are the norm, because the smarter ones already got bigger, better opportunities elsewhere
    - Join the company either early on your career or late. Dont join this if you have organic growth in mind within the company
    - Promotion policies are anything but fair

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Please listen and do more, talk less

    Pros

    The work/ life balance is good compared to other companies.

    Cons

    salary is low compared to others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more with the junior talent and accept new ideas from them.
    More opportunities to get promoted. Also salary increases are not in line with performance.
