    Good work like balance - 9-5 workday is possible.

    Cons

    Vast range in pay scale at the same position.

    Promotions not easily attained. Only a few per year - otherwise need to wait for someone to leave the company - perhaps reconsider this policy.

    Pros

    - Good exposure to senior officers of other companies.
    - If you are white, a lot of opportunity to develop contacts with analysts around the world.
    - If you are white, the opportunity to be promoted, lead a team, and gain credit risk experience at the senior/global level.

    Cons

    - Moody's is a very difficult place to be if you are a minority.
    - They are no black people who are above SVP in all of Moody's US.
    - The idea of having access to the Moody's international network is an illusion for minorities.
    - There is an unwavering loyalty to preserving the careers of old white men who seem to be doing absolutely nothing.
    - Only women and minorities get downsized at Moody's.

    Advice to Management

    - There is no career path to senior management for blacks or minorities under any circumstances.
