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

    Pros

    Putting a positive spin on the disorganization, you learn about systems (people and technical) and how much the foundation of the system contributes to every part of the organization. If you are on a “good team” then you have a good manager who cares about your growth and you work with intelligent, motivated colleagues. 401K match is 100% for up to 6% of salary. When you can actually find time to focus on client relationships, those are rewarding experiences,

    Cons

    In an effort to skip over the nonessential, I will number the cons (in no particular order) and be as succinct as possible. 1. HR/recruiters will lie about what your pay will be. When you receive an offer it will likely be for much less than what was discussed. This happens in sales/relationships management, product specialist, and product management teams. 2. Top talent is leaving in droves, especially in the commercial division (sales/relationship management) and on the technology side of the business. 3. If you speak to HR about any perceived problems, they will go directly to your manager with that information and you will undoubtedly be put under the microscope. 4. Capital IQ bought SNL, and now we are supposedly one company, yet most of the “legacy SNL” despise “legacy CIQ” and vice versa. 5. This is not a place to expand your career development. There are opportunities to work with other teams, but it is mostly surface level. Almost all “professional development” activities are really just specific to SPGMI - product and “diagnostic” trainings. 6. You are replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    Address the problems: 1. Remove individuals from management positions who do not have the requisite skillsets. It’s no secret who these people are so take responsibility. 2. Stop promoting people to senior representatives just because they have been employed by the company for x-number of years.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Established brand in the market.

    Cons

    Company is in a constant state of restructuring so the focus is always on cutting costs and integrating data from legacy organizations. Cost cutting has led to shortage in staff so existing workforce is feeling the burden. Unrealistic goals also leads to bad morale. Management and the next level down show no interest in career growth. The attitude is "just work or quit, we'll find a replacement." Very toxic environment where you don't know if you're going or staying. Lack of communication breads uncertainty. Terrible time in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    At a minimum, act like the people that work for you are humans.

    nothing as such I found here in my tenure..

    Cons

    1) Hadoop Support Team Management has lot of attitude.
    2) No transparency in the team
    3) You won't have a basis right to question Management decision even for small concerns.
    4) Beware of Gurgaon based Managers.
    5) not much learning on Hadoop.. forces you learn other things which doesn;t have any value in the market
    6) they don;t intimate about night shift during interview. But allocates night shift every alternate month.
    7) stay away from Hadoop Support.

    Advice to Management

    can't advise Hadoop support management. anyways they won;t listen. stay away from this team.

    Pros

    nothing as much I found.

    Cons

    1) Too much Micro Management
    2) Pathetic Management. Saying every thing is manager discretion. You don't have a right to question it
    3) Threatens employees with PIP and other stuff
    4) Giving false promise/ not intimating about night shifts at the time of interviews.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear when you say something. And don't show managerial attitude to employees. Communicate about night shifts at the time of interview. beware of gurgaon based managers.

    Pros

    Generally a talented team with much potential; nice colleagues; good life/work balance

    Cons

    Personal growth options very limited; company consistently finds excuses not to promote; punishment for mistakes is harsh and reward for good performance low; questionable promotion/ salary/ management structure - there seems to be a lot of backscratching when it comes to allocating promotions & management positions, while people with the actual skill set and performance miss out; many of the best people leave because frustration levels get to high; no acceptance of constructive criticism.

    Advice to Management

    You could have a great product and team. Unfortunately, you will continue losing your most motivated employees if you don't promote and reward in line with skill and performance but hold on to partisanship.

    Pros

    Once you're hired the likelihood of being let go is minimal. The only people the leave the company are the top people after they get tired of fighting to better the company. Working from home most of the time is a plus.

    Cons

    This company is on a severe downward swing. Since they bought SNL and put their management structure in place all the company has suffered. All the key talent is leaving. The SNL staff are barely capable and fail consistently on project after project while costing the company millions. Executives and upper management positions are like a turnstile. I'm my seven year. I had 5 CIO's, 4 VP's, and 3 Directors. The architecture is so large that most burn out before they can do anything effective. There is way to much in-fighting, political drama, and the 80/20 rule is more like the 90/10 rule.
