    I have been working at Moody's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Moody's is a Great place to work with a good focus on work life balance and benefits. I've had the privilege of reporting to excellent managers.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty meager. You won't starve, but you will look at your paycheck occasionally and think about making a move elsewhere.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Moody's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent corporate culture (much better than investment banking), committed to diversity Very LGBT-friendly and committed

    Cons

    Terrible IT and work infrastructure Useless human resources - if your complaint isn't about sexual or racial harassment, forget about help from HR Very low salaries - a 1.5% raise is considered a merit raise (REALLY!), leading to a serious employee retention problem Next to impossible to get promoted Inconsistent management - managers are provided no training on how to actually manage people And if you're considering taking a job in communications, think twice!

    Advice to Management

    Hire a decent CTO and communications managers, spend some serious money on infrastructure, listen to employees, and start paying your people better

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Love the people I work with. Good vacation days. Good benefits. Nice bldg.

    Cons

    The promotion track is very slow. The difference between positions is very minimal. Once you hit a certain point you won't be doing many different things. The bonus is very low even in a good year

    Advice to Management

    Please consider bonus allocations a bit more. Some depts work many more hours and don't receive larger bonuses. Thanks!
