    Pros

    Good work hours and ability to work at home when needed. Some of the employees are really great people, but these good people tend to leave as the direction of the company is unclear.

    Cons

    No business plan, low morale, not an environment to build a career. New company focus revolves around cost cutting, not growing the business as there is little investment being made. Also, management is insular and and does not react well to constructive criticism. People who focus on politics may do well there but being knowledgeable and working hard may actually harm your career. People who advance are the ones who are good at political gamesmanship. The good people tend to leave, and the turnover is increasing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the rank and file employees. There are many good people and ideas that are suppressed by their managers because they may shake up the status quo.

    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
