I worked at S&P Ratings as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Everyone was very friendly and willing to teach you things. The program had lots of seminars and upper management went out of their way to invite interns to events. Very open and flat culture.

Cons

The work could get tedious. It was up to you to take initiative to find more challenging work.

    Some great people in a difficult economy for publishers...

    I have been working at S&P Ratings full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people innovating in important areas - for example creating market indices on a variety of submarkets, developing new products such as tools for advisor markets and education materials for individual consumers.

    Cons

    Cutting edge financial information is joined with a company that has its roots in print textbooks - a highly competitive industry and with a high cost structure in an age that is moving rapidly to digital. That has created a lot of pressure internally to keep costs, including R&D, down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the long term health of core businesses, less on short term.
