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

    Pros

    Great people, very collegial work environment.
    At the forefront of the finance industry
    Much is being done to modernize the business and operations

    Cons

    Very corporate and change takes a long time
    Advancement opportunities are low
    Can't get talent due to low pay
    It is a dying business due to automation

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to learn how to expand business either organically or inorganically.
    Also tends to hire externally rather than internally for managerial positions, which should be reconsidered.

    Great experience, intelligent, hard-working team.

    Cons

    No work life balance, understaffed, process issues, too much red tape and bureaucracy, poor prospects for long-term career growth. Benefit package is good, but salary is on the low-side of the market and bonuses are dismal.

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

    Pros

    The culture at Moody's is great- the people are generally nice and there is no room for cowboys. In addition, employees are incredibly diverse with just about nationality and language represented there.

    Cons

    Given the transactional nature of the work, the hours can be very tricky. In addition, there isn't a clear delineation between titles as people with very different titles often do the same work making salary negotiations difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees- there have been alot of changes by management which leave employees and even middle managers frustrated and helpless.
