    Pros

    Energetic, smart employees across the organization. Current management team is forward thinking and driven. Opportunity to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Culture is evolving under new management team and stronger corporate parent (S&P Global). Different business lines battle for resources, which has made product development unpredictable in the past.

    I worked at S&P Global Market Intelligence (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. A lot of working from home flexibility. Good brand name. I loved my coworkers when I was there.

    Cons

    The company is on a downward spiral. After a series of poor historical acquisitions (literally bought and dissolved companies) the parent company overspends on the SNL acquisition and even though every acquisition crapped out historically ...THIS time they decide to fire all senior leadership and replace the president (for the 3rd time in 3 years) with a leader with no global understanding and who lacks any understanding of how to manage a product that actually has competition. Everyone is in constant fear for their jobs and catty as all hell trying to point fingers in order to keep them.

    Advice to Management

    I wish there was something at this point that could be done, but the constant reorging and lack of stability are irreconcilable.

    Pros

    Good lifestyle; often work from home on Fridays.

    Cons

    Currently integrating legacy Cap IQ with legacy SNL Financial. Very painful and employee satisfaction is extremely low, especially on the Cap IQ (New York) side, because power, decision-making, and promotions are generally going to the SNL side (Charlottesville). Also, SNL culture is to be skimpy on compensation, and also to weed out weaker performers regularly, so all in all don't expect the company to provide any job stability.

    "Epitome of Greedy 1%"

    Pros

    Interesting business products. NYC location.

    Cons

    A free fall place for savvy competitors to disrupt. SNL Financial backroom PE deal caused $50M+ immediate operating cuts resulting in many layoffs strategically spread out over time to avoid bells and whistles. CEO of the acquired firm reportedly pocketed $60M from the deal. Anyone associated with the S&P Capital IQ exec team was ousted (regardless of performance and potential). Politically motivated MDs saved cronies the first rounds, only to be later ousted themselves. SNL Financial CEO will eventually oust the entire exec team and insert himself as CEO.

    Aged platform which will never be Bloomberg
    No growth strategy all about cost cutting
    Too much politics
    No creativity and innovation
    Doesn't care about clients - general managers don't understand client work flows

    Advice to Management

    Please resign and get some new management that understands capital markets
