I have been working at S&P Global Ratings full-time
-Good enough salary to live in Manhattan
-Great exposure to markets
-Historically a great brand
-Company has re-invented itself in recent years (lots of new staff and new criteria) but could come up on top once the dust settles
-"Sink or swim" mentality with new associates going into rating committees. People are expected to learn things fast AND then apply learnings quickly case by case in each committee.
-Company has so much data other market observers would love to have, but company does not do a good job in being "academic/white paper" driven with all the great data company has. Example: Are bigger companies more credit worthy just because of the fact they're big or is that a misconception?
Advice to Management
Create more layers for promotion
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at S&P Global Ratings (New York, NY).
Resume review followed by a phone interview. If all goes well then an in person interview is done. Typically, interview with 1-3 UX team members a mid-level manager and sometimes a VP.
