    I worked at Moody's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall good place to work. Very financially stable company. Benefits and bonuses are mostly average. Great diversity initiatives by the head of diversity and inclusion. The company takes diversity very seriously which is a big plus. A pretty fair work environment.

    Cons

    Benefits and bonuses could be better. Can be a sweat shop during peak times but you won't necessarily be rewarded for it with a pat on the back or financially.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job rewarding hard workers and high performers.

    Long Term Employment Opportunities. Great Benefits. Work Life Balance. Highly Collaborative Environment. Reasonable Management. New Offices. Rewards match efforts.

    Pros

    Consistency and job security. Lots of philanthropic work.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Just because things have always been done a certain way, does not mean they have to continue to be done that way. For a large company like Moody's, with as established a history, process improvement should always be on the table. This aspect of Moody's was very inefficient, sometimes making the employee feel like he or she was working in the government sector.


  10. "Good flexibility / Decent Pay"

    I have been working at Moody's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work from home policy, flexibility with working hours (I've been in the role for > 3 years and have stayed past 5 PM about 5 times), direct manager is great (this really depends on the team you work on) but senior management leaves much to be desired.

    Cons

    pay is pretty decent and i believe it's on the higher side for this role compared to other peer organizations - no room for creativity

    Advice to Management

    it's an outdated department and there is a lot of red tape to get simple releases out the door - groups like data governance are USELESS and just take up time
