    I have been working at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly, intelligent and supportive. I have full autonomy over my days and schedule. Excellent work-life balance. Relaxed culture

    Cons

    Constant organizational change makes it difficult to focus on tasks at hand. Senior management is often over promises and underdelivers. They can take a really long time to come to decisions and communicate them leading to a lot of confusion and uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    A more incremental approach to change would be helpful.

    I worked at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Most colleagues are friendly and the atmosphere is generally relaxed. Working from home is possible if your manager permits.

    Cons

    Job can get repetitive. Very little interaction with other departments within the company. Promotions are rare and bonuses leave much to be desired. Your immediate manager will determine whether you like working here.

    Advice to Management

    Increase bonuses for top performers

    Pros

    Will be a even more stronger company once ciq and snl integration is done, which is slated to complete in 2-3 years. There were layoffs but mostly incompetent staff were affected. Decisions are being taken quickly which is great thing compared to earlier.

    CTO is supportive to employees in aspects like training, good infrastructure, specifically got approvals quickly for pluralsight training, systems upgrade & lower environment stability, good change from how it used to be. Puts good effort to communicate several aspects of technology space to employees.

    COO is also very hard working and makes efforts to be transparent, this will help company survive and beat competition.

    Other pros that exist before snl aquisition - work life balance, pay & good projects remain same as before.

    Cons

    Integration decisions are made one sided favouring SNL systems - such decisions have great support from top management - this is frustrating to CIQ employees as they feel there is no honest evaluation.

    From the technology perspective, ciq employees feel things that we should build are bought from market and vice versa, but we need some more time to understand this better.

    SNL teams market themself heavily - certain CIQ areas are criticised without understanding details thoroughly and ciq employees having hard time since people aren't listening, they can't go aggressive also as there is fear of elimination, same time SNL teams are very aggressive since they have backing so working environment for middle managers is not so great at the moment.

    Quoting certain people like CTO by employees to get certain things done with in and outside priority is frustrating and influencing culture negatively.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for performance is doing 10 times bad for 70% employees, than it's helping little to 30, slowly affecting we're one team atmosphere too. Please think about it at corporate level. Earlier performance appraisal of team + individual + company used to help everybody keep motivated. Not all teams would have challenges all cycles , that also used to balance spikes easily.

    Please try to address CIQ teams integration concerns on biased decisions, put honest efforts.

    I worked at S&P Global Market Intelligence (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonably good pay. Reasonably good benefits. Mostly good work/life balance. Some very smart people there. facilities are generally good, at least in the US. The company has recovered well from the 2008 situation.

    Cons

    Lots of churn. Not sure the long-term vision is solid. Upper management seems to manage to the quarterly report more than most companies.

    Advice to Management

    There's a feeling of instability among the rank and file. While keeping headcount down is good for the bottom line in the near term, getting too low has a negative impact.

    "Product Consultant review"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Young, energetic and social team of 20-30 product consultants.
    - Great views of the city from 49th floor (NY office)
    - Company invests a lot of time and money into training.
    - Pay for me was good ($55k)
    - Weekend and overtime shifts available
    - Great Hours, 9-5.

    Cons

    - Your performance is very subjective; Its ultimately your managers opinion of your call, or the opinion of a senior product consultant. Often, your performance is a result of how popular you are with everyone.
    - Management under appreciates its team. Often the opinions of the team is ignored.
    - You are often underappreciated by both the clients, and management.
    - Training only prepares you for 60% of the questions asked. The other times, you are often winging it, and this gets stressful when you are taking 3 chats at once and are stuck on one of the clients questions.
    - Your every client interaction is being watched and listened to and judged. Management can pick out the tiniest imperfection and use that to justify firing you.
    - Management terminates employees often very spontaneously. Often times its very 2 faced. they will sit and laugh with you at lunch and talk about personal lives one hour, and fire you the next.
    - The team gossips on a day to day basis about each other. Its almost like college all over.

    Advice to Management

    Show more compassion to your employees. Come up with a better way to measure performance; a way that's not subjective. Come up with a standard way to deal with situations.

    Pros

    Overall reasonable people with positive outlook. Because of its mid size, does not have the high level of politics and negative practices that large companies sometimes have

    Cons

    Does not have the high energy, focus and "big picture" vision that most mid-size companies have. The matrix layers disconnected

    Advice to Management

    Reduce and simplify processes. Make people take end to end responsibilities, where developers talk to everyone all the way to product and sales.
