Good Company but poor management
ETF's, Equity Pricing, CMBS/RMBS/CRE-CDO (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 18, 2018
Very heavy micro-managing which caused delays in project completion.
The focus was always on promoting the manager and not the employees accomplishment.

Senior Business Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 15, 2018
Lots of work with few people. Needs new processes and internal systems so resources are a bit overworked. But this means there are lots of opportunities.

Academic Designer (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 23, 2018
Not much room for advancement. Learned lots of skills but the organization has changed many times over since being there, which doesn't foster a lot of confidence in job security.

The work has value and meaning
Managing Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 19, 2018
The work serves a real purpose in the capital markets. The analysts are diligent and honest (but not perfect). That said, I loved my time there.

Unfortunately, there is a large cultural shift occurring. The focus is on data and AI, understandably so given the what is occurring in all markets. Yet, in the mandate to return greater shareholder value, it is coming at the expense of the staff and the product.
Pros
The Integrity of the analysts and staff on the "factory floor".
Cons
Disconnect between senior management and the 'factory floor'

Solid Company
Senior Director, Brand Marketing (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 22, 2018
The company is a financial firm with a Wall Street mentality. However, it is old-school and somewhat set in its ways. Career advancement is difficult and raises are small.

Buyer of textbooks
BUYER (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHAugust 21, 2018
The educational system is a good place to work - but as a buyer of physical books, not so good. More schools are going electronic and the industry is having a hard time in keeping up with demands of poorer schools that need physical books and too many employees

Inclusive work environment, while also providing plenty of opportunity to work outside a single department.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 17, 2018
This position provided some hands-on experience in the website building area. Also provided a unique opportunity to work with the manager of Emerging Markets. Providing support on that level is something that has stuck with me throughout my career as an Administrative Assistant.

Work Life at S&P Global Ratings
Delivery Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 30, 2018
**This review is relevant to S&P Global Ratings IT and Data groups**

Overall S&P Global Ratings is a good place to work. As with any company though, there are pros and cons. In the case of S&P, the balance of these pros and cons is shifting rapidly at the moment.

Pros
- Good compensation (bonuses have improved in recent years)
- Decent benefits (though they seem to diminish every year)
- Company culture is friendly and pretty relaxed - lots of nice people
- Excellent office location in downtown Manhattan
- The company has substantial resources so scarcity of resources is not generally an issue


Cons
- Continuous churn in senior management creates confusion
- Regular layoffs have hit staff morale hard and created uncertainty
- Focus on costs has moved a lot of IT work away from NYC
- Regulation has made life very process heavy
