    Pros

    Agile environment and very innovative. Great depth of experienced leaders and very entrepreneurial environment.

    I have been working at Moody's Analytics full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    People are nice, and life styles is good. The working hours is acceptable, and the working pace is about right. There is not too much pressure.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work is a little bit trivial and boring. There is not too much motivation since the bonus is about fixed and not striking. The turnover rate is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give employee more motivation by providing more chance to get more bonus

    Pros

    it is a good work environment, rich and multicultural, that rewards skill and merit, it offers flexibility when needed. there is always new projects to keep the job interesting and challenging

    Cons

    the company is under-staffed, which make the work-life balance hard to reach. there is always too many things to do, it's ok when the compensation is following; compensation is fair but not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest on committed resources. encourage personal growth

    I have been working at Moody's Analytics as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Part time, design own curriculum, know schedule a year in advance

    Cons

    understaffed support staff, have never had anyone from MA review my course materials for accuracy or otherwise, totally on your own, cheap with travel arrangements. Senior management is based in London, rather than NYC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more feedback and completed on a regular basis.
    increase to daily rate
    more paid development time for revisions to class materials

    I have been working at Moody's Analytics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, including 6% 401K match and working from home is something that is do-able here. As long as you get your work done, face time is not important. Generally work life is good, except for occasional extremes.

    Cons

    COMP IS BAD! Understaffed so occasionally an work long hours. It is also a man's world culture a bit, and climbing up the ladder is a very political game of getting yourself known to the right people since it is such a huge organization. People stay within their own respective business groups and do not intermingle much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please create more opportunities for women and make a culture that is less wall street since we certainly don't get paid like wall street

    Senior Software Engineer

    Current Employee - Anonymous

    Pros

    Great benefits, management is great. I report to a senior engineering manager who always support his direct reports. He is willing to spend extra hours to ensure our project went through without any issues. He gets his hands dirty even with a simple thing. He is a hands down top coder among his peers and will not back out of anything. It is not easy to find such "complete package" manager here. Engineering department is pretty awesome. We are led by a seasoned software engineer, my boss' boss. She is a great leader and willing to listen to her employees and lay out a great vision for the team. If you are in engineering department, you are in pretty good shape.

    Cons

    Technology is obsolete. Platform team is trying to keep up with latest stack but they seem to stick with old approach. Not sure why. The technology that is quite popular now won't be available (if we are lucky) until later in a year or two. It is quite interesting. On the other hand, some of the engineering teams find the opportunity with the latest technology as it meets business requirements and without any hesitation apply the technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many great engineers in our company who can be managers and great in leading teams. Please continue to promote within.

    Align the platform infrastructure team to the engineering department so that we all speak same 'language'.

    My colleagues have strong knowledge and experience. Great work-life balance. Good group discussions and knowledge sharing.

    Many of their products are showing very little customer growth. There are too many short-term projects. Long term vision is lacking.
