    Pros

    Very good management, stable company, talented people, great benefits

    Cons

    The entry level job for people straight out of college is 1-800 call center phone work, dealing with client questions, some of which are silly/frustrating. You have to do that for at least 18 months, before eligible for a promotion out of there.

    Pros

    The culture within SPGMI is great. The company’s benefits are second to none, and their response to the CoViD-19 pandemic was spot on. Company executives genuinely cared for the wellbeing of their personnel. New employees will find that their colleagues are all friendly and willing to help. For those who join the Commercial side of the company, there is a comprehensive training program that ensures familiarity with the company’s products. There is always work to be done, so one is never bored.

    Cons

    The downside to the robust benefits package is below-market salary. If you’re not in upper management, you will make more money elsewhere. The starting salary for new hires who aren’t in managerial positions in laughable, and even those join in highly technical roles are well underpaid. S&P is a big company that tries to mimic the operating practices of an agile startup. Over the years this has created a bureaucratic mess, in which communication and execution suffer. Classic case of “too many cooks in the kitchen”. Turnover is high within certain teams. The combination of low pay, unclear strategy, and never ending projects can make for a stressful working environment. As the name implies, S&P is a global company. Much of the technical and support related work is outsourced, which presents its own set of challenges.

  6. "Great Place to Start"

    Cons

    Pros

    Beautiful office on water street

    Cons

    They have been horrible since Covid mandated work from home. Have refused to give me a company issued laptop citing a technology spending freeze. I have lost 90% productivity while they pile on more work and IT passes me around not willing too help.
