    I worked at Moody's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you have a good manager and work with good lead analysts, your career will thrive. Great brand for future exit opportunities Lots of resources for learning. If you're lucky really smart and nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Stingy company. If you don't work with Analysts that engage you your career progression is extremely limited. Promotions are gained with lots of office politics and sharp elbows. Lots of pompous people that wished they worked in IB and have an inferiority complex. Over compensate by making their work seem more important than it really is.
