    I have been working at S&P Ratings

    Pros

    Low-stress, good hours, nice, friendly people, pretty good salary, exposure to learn about financial markets, child friendly, good employee training programs in various areas.

    Cons

    excessive corporate red taple leads to difficult time management during work hours, corporate hoops, non-motivating leadership, Performance Management reviews are a complete waste of time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of soley trying to excel yourself and keep your peers down... if you are managing others, try to take time and be a mentor for them to help them succeed. A manager is only as good as their weakest link.

    I worked at S&P Ratings

    Pros

    1) Very good place to start your career: offers a lot to build your skills and knowledge
    2) Very respected brand name in India, which adds weight to one's resume
    3) Merit-based growth offered to employees although sometimes favoritism does cloud some management decisions
    4) Great work culture: very friendly, supportive co-workers

    Cons

    1) Compensation packages are not at all competitive
    2) Lack of proper communication between management and employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the newer management personnel: Listening skills need to be improved. Compensation packages need to be re-structured. Given that the company offers so much to learn and grow, many people would not want to leave if compensation is not an issue.
