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

Pros

Great entry level job for finance grads coming out of a non core school
Not much redundant work. Analysts want you to be heavily involved in the credit rating process

Cons

Technology is slow but improving
Career advances take long

Advice to Management

Promote from within more often. Too much turnover at associate positions

    I worked at Moody's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is global and offers areas for expansion. Mostly in the financial industry.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get management to listen to workers concerns. In addition, too much outsourcing of work!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.

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

    Pros

    work/life balance is the best you will get in finance while working on deals
    people are friendly and approachable
    can learn a lot if you take responsibility for your own development
    access to executive teams/bankers, although you can't "network" with them
    if you want to learn a lot you can, if you want to just coast you can

    Cons

    the pay is extremely low
    for associate analysts your development depends greatly on your analyst
    promotions are hard to come by, and you need to be working at the next level for some time before even being considered
    lots of people just coast and it hurts morale (along with below market pay)
    hard work does not mean more pay or promotion it merely puts you in the conversation
    at the lower levels if you stay too long, you will get stuck here
    management is very unclear about promotion process (will mislead you to keep you chasing the carrot)
    associate analysts get stuck doing a lot of legwork due to increased regulation
    lots of senior people who collect big checks just coasting, noticed by younger hard workers
    very little turnover at the senior levels
    very poor technology

    Advice to Management

    work on retaining talent at the younger levels
    improve technology
    think about trimming the fat on the upper levels
