    Former Employee - Operations Associate in New York, NY

    I worked at Moody's full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Relatively regular business hours. Training is okay. Health insurance and benefits are okay. Leadership made some sort of effort. The working atmosphere was not completely horrible.

    Cons

    Human Resources took forever to get back to me and the screening process if ridiculously long. Also, the culture -- ohh, the culture -- maybe it's because I worked in credit analysis (on the sale side) it was actually for Moody's Analytics but the people could not be more mundane and socializing was not encouraged. When it was, it was not exactly genuine.

    Pros

    People are interesting and educated.
    Work is less intense and hours are better than most of the street.
    Work is interesting, great combination of quantitative and qualitative.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to find great exit opportunities, work can be a little slow-paced, and, like any big company, there is some red tape.
