Standard and Poor's provides great opportunities to do great things with great people for those who find their way into the right groups. Challenging work. A few great leaders.Cons
Measurement dysfunction runs rampant. The company is siloed. Communication is often discouraged. Politics and empire protection sometimes take precedence over doing the right things for the company and employees. There is too much reliance on systems, process, and equations to manage the company. Middle management is afraid and/or incompetent to stand up to a few micro-managing bullies. Management fails to recognize incompetent work. Those who do are afraid to point it out. Good people are not appropriately valued and rewarded. HR fails to understand issues of ethics are more complex than be codified in company policy.
(These comments apply mostly to the IT organization. I have faith in the excellent information products produced by S&P.)Advice to ManagementAdvice
Value your people. Create systems that enable and encourage great work rather than encourage gaming the system.Doesn't RecommendDisapproves of CEO
