    Pros

    Clear direction, easy to communicate with international employees, high level executives were accessible and willing to offer advice, very organized internship program

    Keep doing what you are doing! Upper management did not feel inaccessible or far away, organized the business very well

    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,
