    Pros

    AMAZING work life balance
    Smart, thoughtful people doing interesting work
    Good exit opportunities
    Ability to pursue CFA designation while working

    Management forces unnecessary and unhelpful changes
    Comp is the number one reason people leave; if comp were better turnover would shrink immediately

    I worked at Moody's (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Received insightful advice from seniors, went through the internship before University and colleagues gave sound advice for what to expect and everyone were kind enough to take out time to speak to you. Having an internship at Moody's in high school had prepared me for finance courses in uni and made me top of my batch when getting selected for banking internships.

    Cons

    Open-door policy: close to non-existent (maybe it's just in my case)

    Pros

    Company has great reputation. In the Financial Services industry, I think Moody's provides exceptional work-life balance to employees. Great place for mid career professionals with young families . You will be able to advance your career while still spending time with your family.

    Cons

    Not easy for junior employees to advance careers. So it's common that some newly grads join the firm for a year or two and then leave to pursue other opportunities.

    Pros

    All employees are valued at Moody's. They take Diversity & Inclusion seriously! I like the variety of people that work at Moody's. The CEO & CFO ate top notch. I love working at Moody's.

    Cons

    Some departments with a lot of junior positions have a lot of turnover. Once someone gets experience and there's no room for growth, they'll leave for another opportunity. I've seen it happen time and again.

    I have been working at Moody's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people for the most part. Potential to have a great blend of intellectually stimulating and relevant work.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Poor management. Poor vision. Poor strategy. Too responsive and reactive. Not forward thinking. Really is only saved by being in a protected industry that has low barriers to entry by competition
