Not your grandparent's Moody's
AVP and Manager, Credit Perspectives (Former Employee) –  New York, NY3 July 2017
I treasured the Moody's I entered as a collegial and collegiate place. Its attempts to "run like a business" ultimately changed that culture and contributing to my leaving for a company that was even more intellectually demanding. People don't leave companies, however; they leave managers.
Pros
excellence, prominence
Cons
changing culture

Associate Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NY20 April 2017
Moody's is great for work-life balance but not so great for career development/salary. Management can be resistant to change given the highly regulated climate

Good environment, bizarre management
Associate Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NY28 March 2017
Work/life balance is excellent, easy to work from home, great parental leave, 401k, health insurance. Pay not amazing, but great benefits.

Management not on the ball, makes very strange decisions and not really clued in on what happens at the firm; bizarre and secretive promotion process.
Pros
Great benefits, collegial atmosphere, smart and friendly people
Cons
Weird management, poor morale, unclear how to advance

Financial Associate (Current Employee) –  New York, NY2 January 2017
Co-workers are around the millennial age, but management is not quick to adapt to change. It's a great start for the cubicle life

Great experience to start with
Associate Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NY30 November 2015
Great place to get credit analysis experience. Some analysts are really great with providing direction, others sometimes don't want to take the time. Work live balance is not bad and the culture is usually relaxed. Best to get the experience and move on; if you're looking for a place that will promote or advance, the chances are pretty slim. Moody's definitely hires more outside of the firm than promoting from within.
Pros
Great credit experience
Cons
Lack of advancement opportunities for many
