    I have been working at S&P Ratings full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are great, and the pay is decent... it's not competitive with the banks, but you really do get a 9 to 5 workday. The building empties out at 5pm.

    Cons

    There are a lot of interoffice politics. They are gutting entire departments to "shake up" things, especially things like IT which is being *entirely* outsourced. Progression is really slow up the ladder as well, as it's a place that doesn't judge you on the merits of your work for promotion, but rather the amount of time you're there. Better off leaving and taking a lateral move, then coming back 3 levels higher. It's a HEAVILY meeting dominated culture, where you talk about things for weeks or months at a time before actually doing ANYTHING.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Faster promotions for those that deserve it. The best employees aren't going to wait around to get one, they want to see that their work is rewarded or they will find somebody else who will. The politics and meetings kill productivity, and should be eliminated.
