    I worked at S&P Dow Jones Indices full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relatively laid back, semi fair pay, as long as you get the work done no body bothers you

    Cons

    lack of leadership/management skills/no career opportunities, basically a dead end job.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your staff and actually appreciate them, a couple of meetings to inform everyone wouldn't hurt. Updates on direction of where the business is going, higher pay

    I have been working at S&P Dow Jones Indices full-time

    Pros

    Depending on the group, work life balance can be OK (not investment bank hours)

    Cons

    - Very old school way of thinking, behind the times on company initiatives
    - All white male leadership and favoritism seems to go that way
    - HR is an atrocity. The worst I've seen in the industry.
    - Not competitive pay

    Advice to Management

    The whole culture needs to change and it needs to change from the top.

    I worked at S&P Dow Jones Indices full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is fair, work/life balance is for the most part is reasonable. Promotions and bonuses are done in a fair way. Work force is relatively young and an intelligent group.

    Cons

    Long hours during certain times of the year. Frequent breakdowns in technology resulting in delays. Frequent team restructuring and promotions which seem to be done just to create the feel of career advancement. Niche business with little relatable work experience in other more broad finance roles.

    Advice to Management

    Less middle management, more interaction directly with employees. More transparency on career paths.
