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

    Pros

    Upper level management with legitimate open door policies
    Ability to work from home encouraged
    Excellent internal mobility
    Over time available to compensate for less than standard entry level salaries for the industry
    Upper level management encourages team-team mingling
    Constant opportunity for training, learning and exposure to other company facets
    They pay for CFA/grad school as well as offer various other perks that come with big companies such as movies, memberships, travel etc.
    Time allotted for extracurriculars/volunteering
    Decent vacation package
    Unlimited sick days
    Generous 401K match
    On site breakfast and lunch cafeteria
    Most people and friendly and easy to get along with. A few sour and uninviting coworkers but you will find that everywhere
    Job stability
    I've found that managers tend to always defend and give the benefit of the doubt to their team
    The job mirrors the market so everyday is something new. As my first job out of college I have learned more than the past 4 years and have so much exposure to senior management as an entry level employee. The work itself is interesting in that issuing ratings require both quantitative and qualitative thinking

    Cons

    Some people take the compliance and regulatory issues too seriously
    Depending on your security clearance you will have to sell all of your industry specific stocks
    As with any job that is market based, can be overwhelming at times and underwhelming at other times

    Advice to Management

    Implement casual fridays!!
