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

    Pros

    Training, there was so much training. It was great to learn so much about the product but without all of my prior training I would of only known about 60% of what is on there. On top of the training the learning that you get to do while on the job is fantastic. You get to read any research report you like and learn a ton about the investment industry.

    The call volume is very low. Perhaps 25-30 phone calls per day.

    Cons

    You are a very glorified customer service agent for investment bankers. The banks give their employees maybe two hours of training on the product and tell them to call if they don't understand something. Some of the people calling are vastly under-qualified for the position they are in and dump their ignorance on you, essentially ask you to do their job for them.

    No real career path. You can go into sales or you can go into sales. Management is very disinterested in career development.

    Advice to Management

    Ethics, the firm has very poor ethics.

    Pros

    Generally good benefits and competitive salary. Most co-workers are easy to get along with, and work well together.

    Cons

    In the wake of the SNL deal, company seems to be rapidly expanding without having all of the infrastructure in place to support it. Senior managers are pulled in a dozen different directions and don't have the time to give deserved attention to anything.

    Advice to Management

    Lay the groundwork first.
