Associate Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 16, 2016
A typical work day start at 8-9am and ends after 530pm. I learned how political a workplace could be. I tremendously disliked that often I would feel that work was made up as we went vs. doing projects that were actually relevant.
Pros
Fancy Lunch Room
Cons
High hurdles to become an analyst.

Dishwasher/Food Prep (Former Employee) –  Emporia, VAJune 9, 2016
The management at Moody's Pizza's made the job worth the wait to get to work everyday also the learning experience inspired me that a 9 to 5. Ain't as bad as everyone had said over the years this job made want to experience more of the working life style the hardest part of the job was working later then normal. The Co-workers understood that we had to work as a team for the job to run more smoothly also that it would be easy on everyone this way.
Pros
Free lunch and the loving people that I had the pleasure to work with on a everyday.
Cons
Their cheese streaks was amazing didn't rather any other meal from day to day, now I wish to find a job that will compare to this job.

Good place to learn about credit
Associate Analyst (Current Employee) –  New york, New YorkAugust 30, 2015
Moody's is a good place to learn about credit, although some of it depends on which analyst you are working for. Some analysts are willing to put in time to train but others are not and want you to figure it out on your own. The company needs a better training program.

The administrative work can be a burden. However, the culture is generally good (analysts sometimes get stressed and take it out on the associate), but the associates are enjoyable to work with and, from what I hear, it's a more relaxed atmosphere compared to other banks.

Typical day would include monitoring news for lead analyst, preparing documents for rating committee, and some administrative work. Good exposure to c-level and upper management of the companies covered (ex. phone calls, in-person meetings and emails).
Pros
people, good exposure in terms of ability to learn, amount of resposibility
Cons
training, pay
