I have been working at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people in the office are excited to come to work. We are having a record year in 2014, and us younger team members feel we have great leaders and mentors.

Cons

If you aren't going into the sales path it might be difficult to move up quickly.

Advice to Management

Consider increasing compensation for teams that over perform.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is decent. Growing so likely some opportunity in niches if you can find it.

    Cons

    Still trying to figure out direction, which leads to some discontinuity.
    Trying to change culture there as many of the employees are lifers that are stuck doing business a certain way as opposed to determining best course for future of company.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to take some risks to grow the company. Otherwise, it guarantees mediocrity and inhibits growth.

    Pros

    If you are connected, the Pros of working here are enormous - very lax work hours (great work/life balance), if you are senior enough the pay is amazing considering the little that you do for it, you get to mistreat your team members, you get to belittle anyone you like (as long as they are below you in the hierarchy), fairly generous benefits (good stock awards for Sr Mgrs)...if you are not connected - not very many Pros - if you are not connected you are generally not in the senior roles, your pay isn't that great (actually you are underpaid here by about 25 - 40%), and while work life balance is quite astonishingly good (meaning you can be very flexible with your time, as long as they "like" you), you are tasked with doing mind numbing work, you don't learn much (by and large there are a fair number of very dim individuals in positions of power at this firm), and you certainly won't advance all that quickly (unless you fall into bucket #1 above) - or worse, because you are the only capable individual, you get to do all of the work without any recognition (this place is rife with individuals, esp in senior roles, taking credit for others' work, so do not expect your work to actually get you anywhere in this place)- all in all a great place to work for someone with few aspirations in life, not looking to put a whole lot of energy into what they do and are looking for a steady paycheck - this place is for you!

    Cons

    You're kidding, right? There are simply too many to list, however as a scratch of the surface, they are run by an inept management team that favors sycophants to people who, you know, actually are intelligent and can actually do things - there is a very strong "don't rock the boat" mentality there. The place prints money (due to the Ratings side of the house) and politics is HUGE there. If you were an ignorant, incapable individual and suddenly found yourself in a senior management role because one of your buddies pulled you in, why on earth would you do anything to upset the very sweet gig you have (see Pros for connected people above) - your number one job is to get rid of anyone who has one iota of intelligence more than you, for they may expose you to be the inept individual you are.

    Advice to Management

    Long walk, short pier - take a hike
    The management culture of any company is set by the executive suite - and this place surely suffered as a result. As was mentioned in a recently held meeting amongst the senior management: Lou is a capable sales man, and should have stayed in sales.....
