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

    Pros

    S&P Global Market Intelligence is a top-notch news and information company. Lots of smart and talented people. Hard work is rewarded nicely and is expected from everyone, but environment is not as cutthroat as a Bloomberg. It's a rapidly growing company with many opportunities to move into new areas if you wish. Casual work environment, yet people are serious about their jobs. Company has succeeded in promoting a strong crop of employees to mid-level managers.

    Cons

    Base salary often is below market rate. Convoluted bonus structure. Virtually all the work you do is measured in some way. Health and other benefits are not great.

    Advice to Management

    Make the bonus structure more transparent. Tone down the employee performance metrics.

    I have been working at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Professional, smart and kind coworkers! Good rapport within teams and dedicated to our jobs! Interesting work.

    Cons

    Insufficient salary compared to cost of living and limited growth potential as everyone is mostly put into the 75% satisfactory performance "bucket" which means you aren't really evaluating your employees correctly. Your top performers will burn out and go elsewhere when they see the impossibility of moving forward. But maybe the performance system is rigged to be that way? Just my humble opinion after going nowhere for too long while doing my best every day.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees, we actually have a lot of insight we could share with you. I've been here for several years and no one has ever spoken to me from top leadership, even though Mike, our CEO, introduced himself very kindly once in the elevator. I don't think my department head even knows my name...very strange considering I'm not just some lackey. I've worked at larger companies before (so our growth shouldn't be an excuse) and I was on a first name basis with most executives so I guess that's why the leadership culture here seems a bit odd to me. I think everyone is doing great work, but there's a disconnect with your ESSENTIAL employees!
