    I have been working at S&P Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work Life Balance and Benefits

    Cons

    Management is amateur, does not understand how to lead or adapt to a changing climate. No charisma, No Inspirational Leaders, People just flying by the wind of night. No strategic plans. Culture is aweful, complacent people who do not want to change. They are living in the past with no path to the future. They are lucky they have a strong hold on the Ratings industry or this company would be gone a long time... ago.

    I have been working at S&P Global full-time

    Pros

    Difficult to figure out pros after Lou left and SNL acquired S&P in a reverse merger transaction. Cost is the big play here. A non-technical CTO is running the as Global CTO. If you are in good books for SNL Management, they will fire you at the end. The Islamabad folks are moving to US. I don’t know if this hints at something bigger.

    Cons

    They only understand cost cutting as firing the people who have been their for sometime. The stock price going up because of the buyback primarily. They do not have have new product planned so sitting on a pile of cash. No learning, you can not even voice your opinion. The Ratings business is run by the HR head (someone needs to tell him employee rating is different from credit ratings. They are moving their... operation from Gurgaon and Hyderabad to Gujarat for low cost. Expect a lot of firings by September. There something wrong with valuation Fed should check the books.

    Advice to Management

    Business is not your cup of tea, you sell the business to someone who can run this, do that. Why are you trying to kill a 125 years old company.
