    Current Employee - Director in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    S&P Global offers great benefits with parental leave for both men and women--and both genders do take the benefit. Flexible hours, work from home capabilities, and casual dress code when not in meetings pluses.

    Lack of work life balance and lots of red tape. The amount of regulations result in a lot of tedious busy work.

    I worked at S&P Global Ratings full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Strong, talented and professional people on the ground, very helpful. A lot of opportunities to grow, work life balance is good, flexible working arrangements are available.

    Cons

    The leadership is amateur. No inspirational management. Senior managers are not adopting the changes.

    I worked at S&P Global Ratings full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and a few good people to work with.

    Cons

    No teamwork, lack of training and no transparency! It depends on what team you are working with, some teams work together very well as a team, unfortunately that was not the case for me. A lot of unknown and figure it out yourself processes. Definitely the worst experience I have had by far, no detailed explanation on your daily tasks and very messy, often just get throw under the bus to work on a project that you don’t even know what’s going on... Or what tools you can use and how...not sure how can anyone learn from this type of leadership and training... more inexperienced employees had no experience in coaching or training is the key team members you can learn from, but they are not experienced enough to provide trainings.... nobody’s on the same page and everyone does their own things, no team can function like this m...S&P had great leaders a while back, but now majority of them are forced to leave... the company kept losing valuable workers but there is no attention to this matter...high turnover really is caused by a lot of issues the higher management doesn’t even know...not recommended to work for this type of work environment at all! Definitely the worst....
