    I have been working at S&P Global full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Good access to c-suite executives at covered industries/companies
    -Decent work life balance
    -Front office for a credit position
    -Work can be interesting

    Cons

    -Completely mismanaged
    -Junior staffing model puts a lot of pressure on senior members to cover the weight
    -No loyalty - management fires or manages out senior talent who is more expensive for junior analysts who are not equipped to be primary analysts on companies but are given those responsibilities anyways
    -Very political and all about managing up to the right people

    Advice to Management

    Value your experienced employees and stop making younger and more junior analysts "primary" analysts on companies. It's embarrassing with the issuers and puts tremendous pressure on those left around.
