Pros

Moodys is a great place to learn a whole lot about financial/capital markets. It operates very much like an academic institute, but this truth is contingent upon the exten of your position. Analytical roles will teach you a whole lot more while middle to back office roles will have much less exposure to the intellectual arena within the company. This is a fantastic place to begin or refocus your career, unless you want to stay for 10+ years to find any sense of true career accomplishment.

Cons

There is no hustle at Moodys and the compensation and growth opportunities are widely known as a joke - they do not exist and this is widely known on the Street. This is an old company meaning that you must get on a long line to get true promotions leading to great growth, like 10+ years. Most of the people here are so comfortable it has eroded many parts of the company. Also, the IT infrastructure of the company is beyond a joke. Ratings analysts run this company and therefore there is an operational and company wide promotions lack of focus.

Advice to Management

Pay more, providce incentive for growth, and please find a real CIO!
