    Pros

    Great culture. Very flat.

    Cons

    It varies on the part of the business you are in. But sometimes the short-term sales seem to be prioritised over exploration of ideas that can deliver gains in the longer term.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Management actively cares for its employees and works hard to promote their careers and look after them personally.
    Work/life balance is great with no one forced to work long hours just for the sake of it.

    Cons

    Once you develop a bad reputation, it is hard to get a second chance.

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

    Pros

    Premium location in London. Excellent facilities. Good systems in place. Tradition and stability

    Cons

    Management and lack of leadership on day to day ops. Not customer centric and a lot of politics and nepotism. Jobs are being passed to friends and status never changes. No transparency

    Advice to Management

    Unless you hire people with managerial skills that can inspire and drive change nothing will ever improve. You need to bring in good people with real life experience

    Pros

    The team members are great

    Cons

    The employees that work hard are not valued as they should, on the other hand, some others that actually don't do an effort are rewarded...

    Advice to Management

    Be considerate and value the employees that you have.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, work life balance achieved

    Cons

    Unbelievable that theft happens in such s reputable organisation. For the person that has taken my guacamole and salsa, hope you enjoyed the special ingredients I put in.

    Advice to Management

    Please take this seriously and let employees know theft is unacceptable for the organisation.

    Pros

    Contrary to some posts on here regarding Sales Operations, there is room to progress if you show your worth. Doing it the right way with integrity, hard work and adding value to the sales organisation will be noticed, and praise from other teams is valuable in improving your brand within the company.

    Advice to anyone thinking of joining:- the role in Sales Ops is not the most stimulating or glamorous of roles, however it does carry huge importance within the organisation and it is a great stepping stone for a role in Ops.

    First few months of joining: learn the processes inside out (as questionable as some may be). Once you become an expert, you can show value by getting involved in process improvement suggestions (Tip: the simpler suggestions, the better. Simpler = a higher chance of change being implemented = higher chance of getting your name out there). Sales Ops leaders actively encourage process improvement ideas and your good work will be noted.

    Sales Ops leaders in the US are great. EMEA, however, is a different story (see Cons section below).

    Cons

    Unfortunately the skill set of the Sales Ops leaders in EMEA are lower than what should be expected. Whilst some are OK at general "managing", they can't be relied upon to answer questions related to day-to-day work. They should really take the time out to learn about how Sales Ops operate on a granular level, as well as learning more about the wider impact of Ops on Sales, how we fit in to the organisation, and more about MA's product lines.

    There is also a lack of trust with some managers, which has in turn lowered morale.

    In addition, and rather shockingly, they also lack simple technical skills, such as little to no CRM skills (important for basic reporting) or Excel. There is a culture of "passing off" day-to-day questions to experienced Operations Analysts or CRM reporting questions to the various Ops Specialists.

    Sales Managers should be able to rely on Sales Ops Leaders to provide reporting on CRM data, but the EMEA Ops Managers are unfortunately inept and either "pass off" requests to other experienced members or pass work off as their own.

    Advice to Management

    Management have done a great job in bringing in a culture of voicing your opinion for change. They have also done a great job at providing a career path within Ops. The biggest advise I'd give: hire Sales Ops Managers with better technical skills (add this as a mandatory requirement AND test this during the interview phase), and preferably promote from within to retain the unique Operations knowledge.
