    Pros

    Excellent salary and benefits, good time off

    Cons

    Company management was taken over by a much smaller company and they have sold off profitable sectors of the business they felt was not their core business. This resulted in many layoffs and poor morale. They lost a lot of good talent over the past 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Promote high achievers and grow the business so no more layoffs are needed

    Pros

    The time off and paternity leave are decent. S&P Global has hired some experienced and well-regarded editors and reporters, who have worked at notable publications. If I knew what I knew now, I would have angled to work on a desk with reporters and editors who had come from those better regarded news organizations.

    Cons

    The company is the epitome of woke coca-cola capitalism. Although, the newsroom wasn't very diverse. For the most part, you're not going to do any hard hitting journalism at S&P Global. But there were a couple of reporters who managed to do some interesting work. This is an organization that lobbied for the Trump Tax cut all over social media. It does not want to anger its mostly investment banking readers, who pay a lot of money to see their names in rewritten press releases. Coming from a newspaper, the newsroom culture was the most depressing thing I'd ever seen. It was morgue-like. I interacted with some reporters, mostly on the younger side, who scoffed at the notion of "shoe leather reporting" and came off as boot-lickers when questioning sources.
    I was paid pretty poorly, but I was surprised by how much some of my colleagues earned.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the $50 award given to readers to spot mistakes. This gimmick results in scared reporting and weak writing.

    Pros

    -Good benefits (in line with most large corps)
    -work life balance

    Cons

    -poor leadership in the Market Intelligence division (unqualified, unskilled) all from SNL with no real financial/market experience
    -good employees leaving to competitors
    -US based roles eliminated
    -seemingly no direction since the SNL merger almost three years ago
    -limited growth or no job opportunities outside of Charlottesville or Richmond
    -rampant nepotism
    -weak reimbursement for additional ed/grad school
    -disorganized
    -poor culture

    Advice to Management

    Employees aren’t happy, talent is leaving in droves to your competitors. Open up career opportunities to people outside of the legacy SNL organization and end the nepotism.

    I worked at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    1. Ability to learn. There are a lot of data sets and if you are motivated, you can be put in a good position to learn. I think this applies primarily to junior staff. Cannot recommend for any other professional grades.
    2. Reasonably good working conditions and work from home policies.

    Cons

    1. Tremendous staff turnover and painful integration. Befuddled management culture has developed as senior management are trying to reduce costs. Staff (typically middle management) across company has no trust in short or long term vision as everyone feels like they are at the company for the short term. Not healthy work environment.
    2. No innovation for years after endless changes. Company focuses on platform standardization -very difficult and disruptive. This may change, however I found that the corporate culture to be overbearing and simplistic, which I personally did not like and do not respect.

    Advice to Management

    Try to finish layoffs and turn the corner on expanding the business. At this point, there is no reason for any ambitious or talented person to attempt to build a long-term career at the company as there is no loyalty (due to the integration) and lack of long term vision (not sure about the Kensho acquisition.)
