    Pros

    Very relaxed environment and company culture as it compares to industry competitors. In my experiences, I've met and worked with many talented individuals. Much of the senior leadership is very interested in growing talent internally.

    Cons

    Managed service provider.... Took 10 days for a simple program to be pushed to my Desktop. Coming from another large Fortune 500 company, Ive noticed monumental differences in site support.

    Pros

    Management does value tech and realizes they will build the future of the company. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Management seems indecisive on direction. New direction has been promised for about 7 months now and nothing has come. The new CEO seemed promising but nothing has happened yet. Patience goes only so far.

    Pros

    If you take your opportunities you can go a long way. This is an employer that wants to retain, develop and reward it's top talent. Sit back and don't be surprised if you're in the back seat. I've seen the best rise very quickly.
    The balance of power is shifting. Europe is rising.

    Cons

    Like many large corporations, still slow to respond to opportunities. Not enough market hires who have sat in our client's shoes. Current uncertainty is on its way to resuloution but we're losing ground.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a voice. Don't let the consultants dictate everything; they have less vested interest in the long term success than your people. There are some excellent employees in your ranks who know the business better than external parties/hires; identify them and make sure you get their input. Keep decentralising from the U.S. but improve global collaboration, not just at an executive level. Make sure we make up ground before we lose what is left of our competitive advantage. And finally, if you want engaged employees, give them shares. It is that simple.

    Pros

    Good brand name leader in credit space and indices; flexible hours and working from home

    Cons

    New president is too micro management and cost saving Initiatives are rather pointless (lowest possible airfare and hotels ) - this is only applicable to junior staff and management are still travelling with luxurious business class and own preferred airlines and hotels. Outsourcing IT service makes work inefficient and slow in getting issues fixed. Management team members choices are 90% based out of favoritism, growing many incompetent leaders that lay off real talents. To have old school S&P staff managing Capital IQ technologies sound like getting Dessert chef frying world class steak which is impossible

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of incompetent leaders SERIOUSLY and fix the product team which hasn't done much over the past couple of years due to internal politics
