    Pros

    People are super nice and friendly; you can learn about their business by asking around if you want. Very stable business.

    Cons

    For regulatory reason, you might not get to do a lot of the "real" work as an intern

    I have been working at Moody's as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay (at least for an intern), a lot of diversity in the workplace, your opinion is valued no matter what your position. Reputable company on a resume.

    Cons

    I've heard it's hard to move up in the organization, work can be mundane because of the subject matter

    Advice to Management

    Give the interns more long term projects or presentations rather than short, quick assignments

    Pros

    Structure is very flat, was able to talk to a lot of people from associate analysts up to senior management
    Received encouraging messages from management
    Horizontal movement is easy
    You learn as much as you want, or as little as you want - internship experience is defined by individual candidates, not groups or managers

    Cons

    Very disorganized HR and programming for interns, may be a function of recruiters being new to their roles
    Some people love their jobs there, and others don't --hinders overall productivity in some groups
    Receiving feedback depended on group and manager's schedules
    Groups are highly separated
    Little vertical movement seen for the future, more outside hires come in at higher levels and promotions are hard to get and occur once a year

    Advice to Management

    Recruit your interns earlier to get a better, more competent class. Also, it's great that interns are able to talk to senior management and leadership, but middle and entry level employees should get that access too.
