    I worked at S&P Global full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Working Environment. Dedicated, and hard working professionals who provide unbiased opinions on the credit standing of companies and sovereigns.

    Cons

    There is very little negative to say about working at S&P Global Ratings. Sometimes decision making could be faster but taking time to think things over also has its merits.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at S&P Global.

    Interview

    Had three people interview me and an online test. Lot of conceptual questions. Overall a fair experience. I was later told that an offer was in the making and then they went completely silent. Strange!!! They could at least tell me why they ended up not making me an offer when they initially indicated that they would.
