    "Core Ratings Business Outsourced to Inexperienced Junior Analysts"

    I have been working at S&P Global Ratings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Generally good work life balance, although may not make up for stressed workplace and managers bully tactics. Benefits are standard, with good 401k plan and adequate vacation.

    Cons

    Managers are jeopardizing the client management relationship and core ratings business by embracing a low cost structure and predominately junior staff model.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the flight of experience and talent leaving S&P Ratings either involuntarily through continued cost reductions or voluntarily due to poor management. Focus on what's important to clients as they are clearly frustrated with the analytical turnover and lack of experience on their accounts.

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Director in New York, NY
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at S&P Global Ratings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work life balance-for the most part. I recommend S&P for recent graduates who want to get two years of experience, but move onto greener pastures after two years.

    Cons

    Poor management, constant change and streamlined/systematized ratings process that result in weaker analysts and credit analysis. Ratings process/systems favor consistency of process over robust credit analysis. Analysts lost their depth of sector and company knowledge.
