Fantastic place to work
Vice President of Professional Services (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEApril 4, 2019
Excellent company. I would recommend new graduates to consider a role with the company as they do have succession planning in place and if you prove yourself you could have an amazing future ahead!

Great company with a forward looking management
Senior Vice President, Credit Strategy (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 1, 2019
Company is heavily regulated globally. While the management is very progressive and looking to innovate, inherent constraints of the business model and regulation force limited innovation. An excellent company to work for. I greatly enjoyed my time at the company and appreciated the positive and congenial working environment

Consultant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 5, 2019
It's hard to review the entire company since I was only a consultant. I would rate the facilities as fantastic and the employees I met as genuine. They were also careful to create walls between business units, so integrity seemed high

Frequent parties, no work.
Technical Product Analyst (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 5, 2019
As a contractor, I had to report to the manager who would not share what exactly are we doing. Just pass out the task and then submit it to her or the repository so it felt like being locked in the room, waiting for the food(work) to arrive. Lots of resources were not available to the contractors and every time we had to go through the helpdesk in order to add an open source application.
Management needs to look out how they are wasting resourceful candidates doing nothing besides learning on their own.
Pros
work parties, relaxed slow environment.
Cons
no leadership skills.

Assistant Director - Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 5, 2019
There is always a meeting in Moody's and many of them do not go anywhere. There is good work to be done but you always have to stay within the limits of what is available. Doing things differently although better will not get you promoted. You have to fit the mold management wants in order to get promoted.
Pros
Work/Life Balance, casual attire
Cons
Healthcare cost, pay not meeting market expectations, management

A Great Place to Work
VP, Project Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 27, 2019
Moody's has enjoyed a great reputation as the industry leader with collaborative culture. Also a company who focuses on risk and control, so make sure you have got the go-ahead from all stakeholders. This is a good place for work-life balance as you can make formal arrangements to work remote.
Pros
Good benefits, work-life balance
Cons
Limited upside potential if you are not an Analyst by training

Decent company to work for
Director of Research (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 17, 2019
At Moody's, people work reasonably hard, and they work reasonably well together.

It's less stressful than a 'Wall Street', investment bank job, but it's also less well paid, with less upside career mobility.

Highly engaging workplace
Vice President (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 14, 2019
Excellent management who allowed for creativity and encouraged opinions to be expressed, whether dissenting or agreeing.

Work life balance was exceptional, worked two weekends in 12 years. Work from home was encouraged. Very focused on flexibility.

Very flat organisational structure and as such advancement would be slow if a tall. This was probably reason for exceptional benefits to offset.

Although compensation was lower than bulge bracket banks, work life balance more than made up the pay discrepancy. That said compensation was still very good.
Pros
Work life balance, excellent professional colleagues
Cons
Lack of career advancement

AVP (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 14, 2019
Neutral, it was not a good work environment. Lack of vision at a senior level, lack of growth opportunities. Skills were not recognized, hence leading to stagnation

Moodys
Financial Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 2, 2018
Moodys was the worst place i ever worked. Management was terrible with direction changes. 15 hour days were not uncommon, and if you had vacations you were expected to be on call.

Good Workplace. Management in paralysis mode
Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 18, 2018
Things move slowly with several layers of bureaucracy. Agile process not adhered to. Technology is behind the times, specially when it comes to rolling out new products. People are friendly. Great work life balance.

Great place to start a career in Finance
Financial Data Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 24, 2018
This review is from the perspective of an associate on the operations side of the business. For the first 8 months you learn quite a bit but after that your job knowledge plateaus. This is a place where people go to start their career and then end it. They allow you to work remotely and have a very flexible working hours at least in my department but I hear that this varies from manager to manager. The culture is you show up, do your work for 8 hours and then go home which is nice for people who are not social but if you are looking for a company where you form a very strong bond with your work mates this is not the place. If you are lucky enough you may get into a team that does have a strong bond and spends time with each other outside of working hours but these are few and far between. Compensation is low compared to other areas of finance and there is an unspoken 2 year rule to get promoted to a more senior level. If you're patient the wait will pay off and you'll be making what an average entry level employee would make for any big 4 accounting firm. Benefits are great.
Pros
Benefits are great; workplace flexibility; open door policy
Cons
Below average compensation; poor management ; recluse culture

Assistant Vice President, Data Governance (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 5, 2018
Moody's is finance however it is not a bank. It is a good place to work and offers excellent benefits. There are a lot of opportunities for movement across the organization.
