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

    Pros

    Incredible staff support 24/7 via IM. Great at-home position. Proofreaders work remotely and are literally in locations all across the globe. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Work is cyclical, based on the financial quarters. Very busy after quarter-end and then a slow-down, ramp-up, etc. Pay is okay; not great.

    Pros

    They recently acquired SNL Financial which gives sales reps even more to there is more to sell. Superior brand name recognition.

    Cons

    Integration of both data sets means there is a transition period from a tech standpoint but they are nearly completed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making S&P a one stop shop.

    Pros

    S&P Global Market Intelligence is a combination of both Capital IQ and SNL Financial. It's currently undergoing a large integration project, details of which are publicly disclosed in S&P Global's SEC filings. Having said that, what I will say is once the integration is complete this firm is going to launch a series of products the market has never seen before. With macro trends favoring SPGMI (migration away from expensive single license seats from Bloomberg/Eikon/FactSet, etc..., reduction in financial information spend since sell side is shrinking, difficulty generating alpha in buy side) this is clearly the financial information company to be part of for the next 3-5 years.

    The management team is almost entirely from SNL Financial, who built an incredibly profitable, resilient business by aggregating publicly available data better and faster than much larger competitors. I am incredibly impressed by their drive, open communication and commitment to accountability. Competitors should be very concerned.....

    Cons

    My only concern would be the sheer amount of change the firm is undergoing to get the entire division aligned to common goals and a singular purpose. Sales/Product/Content/Development all have multiple projects underway. Change can be tough, distracting and a burden depending on how it's implemented, but clearly this team has decided to get it done and over with as quickly as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Be cognizant that this is a bigger company now, what worked in Charlottesville might not work in NYC/London/Hong Kong. Think big, monitor metrics but don't get consumed by them and focus on hiring the best people possible.

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

    Pros

    S&P has a great compensation and performance plan. The bottom performers have their annual reward reallocated to the top half.

    Cons

    Renewal goals are incredibly high, and the percentages that subscriptions need to be increased by are significant. Those two items coupled together are difficult to manage,

    Pros

    Flexible and supportive management team. Great benefits and team environment that is very productive. Team is very willing to help one another out.

    Cons

    Not a lot of complaints. SNL Was acquired by MHFI in late 2015 and the current support structure is a third party company called ATOS. We are currently making the move to take over the IT Support roles.

    Advice to Management

    Help IT members improve by offering certifications to those who have been with SNL for two years plus and have received good reviews.

    I have been working at S&P Global Market Intelligence as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment and company culture as it compares to industry competitors. In my experiences, I've met and worked with many talented individuals. Much of the senior leadership is very interested in growing talent internally.

    Cons

    Managed service provider.... Took 10 days for a simple program to be pushed to my Desktop. Coming from another large Fortune 500 company, Ive noticed monumental differences in site support.

    Pros

    Great team environment, clear path for growth, and allows you to work on your own projects on a day-to-day basis.

    Cons

    Hard to understand the vision of the firm on a daily basis. Sometimes main sales techniques and success stories get lost in translation. Feel a bit of distance from other corporate offices.
