    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at SNL Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code and Charlottesville is just beautiful

    Cons

    If you upset the wrong manager or you don't CYA, you'll quickly make the spotlight, which isn't a good place to be in the company. Additionally, people are quick to toss you under the bus if it helps their career, especially your own manager.

    Advice to Management

    The culture of rewarding the "teacher's pet" needs to change. Stop looking for ways to cut our bonuses if we surpass our goals (happens all the time).

    I have been working at SNL Financial full-time

    Pros

    Young culture and fast growth allows for lots of exposure to clients, major projects, and executive management.

    Cons

    Terrible middle management means there is no training or employee development other than learn by fire. Tons of politics in Charlottesville that impact every level of the organization.
