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

    Pros

    I have been working at Moody's Analytics for over a year and have enjoyed the majority of my time here. I have had the opportunity of client facing, recruiting and partner with senior management on great projects. Moody's is the best place to leverage work life balance and grow as a professional.

    Cons

    In various strategy roles, there isn't enough structure to help guide young employees into a transparent career path. Compensation could also be improved

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more structured and time sensible career path for young professionals
