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

    Pros

    - Career progression (if you work hard and identify the right opportunities); supported me in going from recent graduate/junior engineer in London, to a running a highly visible and key team in the Asia-Pacific region, within 6 years. - Diversity; a truly global company with staff (junior/mid/senior) from varying cultural and ethnic backgrounds. - Leadership communication; no matter where you are and what team you are in, the senior leadership team keep you well informed about major company updates. - Mobility opportunities; I traveled a lot between the US, EMEA and APAC regions. It was an amazing experience. I was also transferred from EMEA to APAC, and offered other opportunities to relocate home or elsewhere too. Many of my former colleagues experienced the same. - High degree of autonomy and flexible working hours; no micromanagement and the focus is on working "smart" vs. wasteful long hours in meaningless meetings.

    Cons

    - Mergers, with the politics and uncertainty that came with them... I went through many mergers with S&P Global, and 2 were very significant. However, given the huge amount of change they potentially carry, it's understandably always a very tricky situation to navigate (for any company).
