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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits, that's it. OK, maybe the Christmas party. Everything else blows. From the help desk to lower and upper management. Move on.

    Cons

    You're a "resource" not a person. Every paper clip has to be approved by ten people. Every hour of real work taken seven to document or justify it. Way too stifling. Move on.

    Advice to Management

    Start over.

    I have been working at S&P Global Ratings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people (those who are left) who care about what they are doing; good work location (NYC); reasonably competitive salary and benefits

    Cons

    Lost the human touch - CEO and company cares only about stock price, now. Becoming a shop of anonymous robots. Far too many layoffs over past 2 years - even at executive level. Both business and IT have suffered catastrophic losses. The most brilliant folks are now gone.
    NOTE: Ratings are primarily for IT department only - Ratings analytical jobs are still good
