    I have been working at S&P Global Ratings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place for working mothers and to retire. Pace of work depends on the group you work for but overall stress levels pale in comparison to Investment banks. Hours are very good for families.

    Cons

    It is not a good place for young professionals. Despite the good hours, salaries are low and the work is not interesting enough. It is a good place to develop your fundamentals but the pace of growth for your career is slow to non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees by promoting from within.

    "Exhausting whirlwind experience navigating intensely matrixed organization replete with politics and dysfunction."

    Pros

    Some incredibly bright people in analytics, from mid-level up through the head of ratings, compliance and analytics. Work / life culture pretty good, and you'll find that most people work about an 8 to 5 days, amazingly enough in this day and age.

    Cons

    Bizarre politics, with some incredibly mediocre people in IT, wasting millions of dollars per year while returning "ok" results. There's an overwhelming "don't rock the boat" theme running through the organization, to the point where even low level project managers are discouraged from sharing anything but good news on their status reports, lest somebody up line get upset. The result is that some of the C-level folks think all is well, and often aren't provided with the full story.

    Advice to Management

    Political situation way too complex for a trite recommendation. However it needs to be addressed. Recommend creating a true ombudsman department, with several members and an organization process to explore issues that employees raise - and bring concerns, results and patterns of complaints to C-level management so they can start to become aware of the real issues, while not exposing the "whistle blowers" to risk.
