    Pros

    Very young company - most people are hired straight from UVA

    Horrible management - people are promoted too quickly and hired into manager roles without any experience or training. Very long hours.

    stop promoting from within without training

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits. Work was interesting at times, when I showed initiative and did something on my own.

    Cons

    Constantly changing goals, objectives and LEADERS. Employees (maybe this is always the case) were promoted based solely on politics and not at all on skills or knowledge of the industry and products they manage. Inconsistent titles and pay across the same job functions, which led to resentment.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a leader from the industry who actually has run a huge organization and actually try to retain top employees instead of just using the statement as lip service. Actions and your message often diverge.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits package with a strong company name. The role provides exposure to a broad range of excellent leveraged finance intelligence and the opportunity to work with some great people.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the division you end up in can make or break your experience. Although some managers are excellent, others set the team up for complete failure. Unless your job prospects are desperate, I would not recommend. Excluding the recent turmoil among senior employees, the primary side lost 5 members following a new manager promotion, an obvious sign of failure to management.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that massive turnover is not simply cyclical, but a sign of a much greater problem.

    Pros

    Work life balance. Able to work at home once a week. Of course, the company benefits when employs need to work late nights and weekends.

    Cons

    Paid way too much for SNL. Capital IQ is a tired product, but merging it with niche product and putting SNL management in charge is not the answer. Merging two mediocre products will not make one great product. Management is committed to 60/40 employee split between SE Asia and the rest of the world. It's also clear that operations will move to Virginia. These are good trends if you live in one of these places. The rest of us are left with a feeling of instability. Compounding that feeling, work has slowed.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the 60/40 requirement and hire and train people based on value, not cost.

    Pros

    Depending on the team you're on, there's a lot of freedom within your job. The place has good middle management that wants to fight for you but is holding a water gun in a real war. However, it can be hit or miss whether you're micromanaged to given full autonomy.

    Cons

    New leadership is rigid, stuck in their old ways, and has not demonstrated the capacity to understand running SPGMI is much different from content-oriented SNL. It's too bad the CEO is obsessed with margin improvement rather than building real world class offerings. Products are broken, but management is too focused on KPI and ROI that they don't bother looking under the hood to see it's just duct tape and bubble gum keeping the ship afloat. TR and FDS are primed to leap ahead of the business not reliant on the CUSIP and Ratings monopolies.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what talent retention means. Your best talent is leaving or wants to leave badly while the overpaid contributing next to nothing are protected by senior managers in an environment that resembles a Hollywood high school movie. Anyone can box subpar products and slap a guarantee on it. Just ask Tommy Boy. Some of you also have a thing or two to learn about professionalism.

    Pros

    Great people, easy going atmosphere (ie they don't expect you to be working 80 hour weeks)

    Cons

    constant budget cuts and re-organizations, multiple budget cuts, lack of career mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Try to nurture younger employees by promoting them into higher positions.

    Pros

    Top notch environment, love the standing desks
    Great work life balance, most of your days work can be finished within 4 hours

    Cons

    The new management from SNL makes you feel that all they care is to dump their technology and management framework to the integrated company and prove that it works. You don't see them care about employee growth, other than what they need you to do, good luck with having any motivational conversation with your new managers

    Advice to Management

    SNL folks need to show that they do care about retaining current employees, although they assured this in town halls, you really don't see them care about people, all you've been asked to do is to follow their procedure and finish the integration. That is a job for robots, we people need motivation once in a while to feel involved in the long term picture
