    I worked at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are connected, the Pros of working here are enormous - very lax work hours (great work/life balance), if you are senior enough the pay is amazing considering the little that you do for it, you get to mistreat your team members, you get to belittle anyone you like (as long as they are below you in the hierarchy), fairly generous benefits (good stock awards for Sr Mgrs)...if you are not connected - not very many Pros - if you are not connected you are generally not in the senior roles, your pay isn't that great (actually you are underpaid here by about 25 - 40%), and while work life balance is quite astonishingly good (meaning you can be very flexible with your time, as long as they "like" you), you are tasked with doing mind numbing work, you don't learn much (by and large there are a fair number of very dim individuals in positions of power at this firm), and you certainly won't advance all that quickly (unless you fall into bucket #1 above) - or worse, because you are the only capable individual, you get to do all of the work without any recognition (this place is rife with individuals, esp in senior roles, taking credit for others' work, so do not expect your work to actually get you anywhere in this place)- all in all a great place to work for someone with few aspirations in life, not looking to put a whole lot of energy into what they do and are looking for a steady paycheck - this place is for you!

    Cons

    You're kidding, right? There are simply too many to list, however as a scratch of the surface, they are run by an inept management team that favors sycophants to people who, you know, actually are intelligent and can actually do things - there is a very strong "don't rock the boat" mentality there. The place prints money (due to the Ratings side of the house) and politics is HUGE there. If you were an ignorant, incapable individual and suddenly found yourself in a senior management role because one of your buddies pulled you in, why on earth would you do anything to upset the very sweet gig you have (see Pros for connected people above) - your number one job is to get rid of anyone who has one iota of intelligence more than you, for they may expose you to be the inept individual you are.

    Advice to Management

    Long walk, short pier - take a hike
    The management culture of any company is set by the executive suite - and this place surely suffered as a result. As was mentioned in a recently held meeting amongst the senior management: Lou is a capable sales man, and should have stayed in sales.....

    Pros

    Good work hours and ability to work at home when needed. Some of the employees are really great people, but these good people tend to leave as the direction of the company is unclear.

    Cons

    No business plan, low morale, not an environment to build a career. New company focus revolves around cost cutting, not growing the business as there is little investment being made. Also, management is insular and and does not react well to constructive criticism. People who focus on politics may do well there but being knowledgeable and working hard may actually harm your career. People who advance are the ones who are good at political gamesmanship. The good people tend to leave, and the turnover is increasing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the rank and file employees. There are many good people and ideas that are suppressed by their managers because they may shake up the status quo.

    Pros

    You will have S&P on your resume as a big industry name...period ..there are no other pros unless you manage to get a good manager which is extremely difficult.

    Cons

    Everything is based on friendships not on skill or experience. Comprised off of smaller companies acquired along the way mangers are inexperienced. Most managers do not allow employees access to the great company benefits or work life balance and the company turns a blind eye. HR is useless. Basically mangers do not believe in nor support company employee initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing inexperienced managers to manage large groups of people - let them manage projects instead. Also stop covering up bad business decisions by laying off talent since you cannot trust your managers to identify themselves as being the employees that need to be laid off.

    Pros

    Great brand and generous benefits

    Cons

    The president and her management team are clueless. Nobody in their right mind would employ any of them. Totally incompetent but living the high life with no regard for the hard working employees. They all need to go in order to save the business. Have never come across such a bunch of buffoons running a billion dollar business in my entire life.

    Advice to Management

    House cleaning time for McGraw Hill. The sooner you get rid of these clowns the better.
