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

    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.

    "Epitome of Greedy 1%"

    Pros

    Interesting business products. NYC location.

    Cons

    A free fall place for savvy competitors to disrupt. SNL Financial backroom PE deal caused $50M+ immediate operating cuts resulting in many layoffs strategically spread out over time to avoid bells and whistles. CEO of the acquired firm reportedly pocketed $60M from the deal. Anyone associated with the S&P Capital IQ exec team was ousted (regardless of performance and potential). Politically motivated MDs saved cronies the first rounds, only to be later ousted themselves. SNL Financial CEO will eventually oust the entire exec team and insert himself as CEO.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good, work life balance is good. The people and work environment is a positive place to work.

    Cons

    Minimal skill set built via day-to-day work, career opportunity advancement has a ceiling due to group size. Not many other issues.

    I worked at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time

    Pros

    I had a great experience at S+P. I found the work to be rewarding. Work life balance was also excellent

    Cons

    The pace of work could have been much faster. Also, as is typical with older companies, the technology was behind the times

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees involved with new projects and faster works flows. Moving projects more often can be helpful.

    Pros

    Pay is good for what you're doing. Very laid back environment.

    Cons

    The company is on it's third executive committee in 12 months. Part of this included laying off good, hardworking people who had been there for years. On the west coast there is now a lack of management. People come to work drunk and high. Managers encourage this because they find it funny. Promotions are based on friendships, not merit. People consistently take naps in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the local management and start over. Encourage employees by showing that hard work is rewarded. Don't allow drug use in the office.
