    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

    Cons

    Very pushing sometimes. Especially for rating groups. No schedule.

    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.
