    Exhausting whirlwind experience navigating intensely matrixed organization replete with politics and dysfunction.

    Pros

    Some incredibly bright people in analytics, from mid-level up through the head of ratings, compliance and analytics. Work / life culture pretty good, and you'll find that most people work about an 8 to 5 days, amazingly enough in this day and age.

    Cons

    Bizarre politics, with some incredibly mediocre people in IT, wasting millions of dollars per year while returning "ok" results. There's an overwhelming "don't rock the boat" theme running through the organization, to the point where even low level project managers are discouraged from sharing anything but good news on their status reports, lest somebody up line get upset. The result is that some of the C-level folks think all is well, and often aren't provided with the full story.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Political situation way too complex for a trite recommendation. However it needs to be addressed. Recommend creating a true ombudsman department, with several members and an organization process to explore issues that employees raise - and bring concerns, results and patterns of complaints to C-level management so they can start to become aware of the real issues, while not exposing the "whistle blowers" to risk.

    I have been working at S&P Ratings

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive salary for lower level jobs (like mine).

    Cons

    General culture of slavish respect for authority, but intelligence can be seen as threatening. Talent not valued nor recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold job performance and understanding of markets and PEOPLE to higher standard than you hold ambitious employees' kiss-up abilities.
