Great work environment and Internship program!

I worked at S&P Ratings

Pros

Great teams to work with, awesome work environment.

Cons

Limited responsibilities. I did work at Citi the previous year and that was much more finance related (as far as modelling, etc. goes); S&P was largely handling big data on CDO loans.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Diversify the internship experience- perhaps introduce a rotational program.

    On the ratings side, the company is ivory tower at it's worse. The business is model is a legacy 1960s conglomerate.

    I worked at S&P Ratings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has good benefits for the employees - healthcare, 401K matching, profit sharing, and health club subsidies.

    Cons

    S+P is not interested in thought leadership and is mainly interested in the status quo. The firm is still recovering from the mistakes from the economic meltdown. Management is more worried about getting something wrong than having a desire to be right. The company spends to much time viewing competitors ratings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from the mistakes from the past and reinvent your business. Ignore your competitors ratings and develop a truly independent viewpoint.

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

    Pros

    Ability to learn a lot about the markets

    Cons

    Management is old school in the ratings services department so it is hard to move around to different positions with in the company. Managers usually block their employees from to different departments which stifles growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with the blocking system in ratings services let your employees grow with in the company

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
