Pros

Good exposure to high profile works even from junior level. Allows you to learn a lot under relatively less time-constraint environment.

Cons

The pay is sub-par to other rating agencies. Senior analysts tend to stay long-term, and therefore, there is less chance of upward movement unless portfolios of credits get reshuffled around internally.

Advice to Management

Junior analysts need to be compensated more in line with fair market value and be rewarded based on their performance for bonus. Due to lower pay, the quality of junior support will always be to a certain degree limited.

    Pros

    Moody's has a good name. Their benefits are very competitive. Bonuses are based on company performace, therefore there always exists a potential to bring home a nice amount. Moody's tries to keep their employees well informed of company developments.

    Cons

    Promotions are not based upon merit, but favortism. Management has no understanding of what their staff does. The company's overall atmosphere is a big boy's club. Minorities are very unlikely to ever obtain senior management poistions. Working longs hours are expected and not rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Review the performance evaluation process and invest more heavily in your employees, especially the loyal ones.

    "Great Place to Learn - No Growth, No Hustle, No Pay"

    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!
