A company with a long history, complex business model, and always striving to innovate and to adapt in ever changing business world

Featured review

S&P Global selected this as a representative review
Company went through major changes throughout my tenure. I have seen it change it’s stock ticker symbol twice from MHP to MHFI to SPI. At the same time the company focused its attention to finding and sticking to their business core which ultimately was predominantly financial services. As such, business entities such as publishing, education, broadcasting and more were spinned off and sold to the highest bidder. Along with all these changes came a mix of poor decisions and genius-like decisions. Those poor judgement ranged from the way the company outsourced or cosourced work assignments. As we all know, every major decision will affect people in one way or another. It was time well spend. I learned a lot in terms of work ethic, career enhancement, and from constant structural changes themselves.

My first full-time job. Great benefits, work-life balance, and good environment. As in every job, it depends on the team you have, but I was lucky and I have a really nice team with really talented people.

Good place to jumpstart a career for new graduates

I was offered this job through a contractor, and my assignment was with a company (IHS Markit) that merged with S&P Global. Not sure how the entire S&P organization is (since we merged, and not directly employed by S&P from the beginning), but the management/employees at the Andover location that were initially part IHS Markit and now S&P employees were very welcoming and nice.As you read this, keep in mind that the organization might have re-structured the Andover location following the merger. But as far as my review at present, there were no major changes to management/employees, apart from some employees leaving in search of better opportunities. It's mostly young and new professionals who get as much out of this role as possible and then taking the next step in their career.As far as the job goes, if you are hired by a contractor (not sure if S&P will use contractors moving forward), just know that while your role is "Tax Analyst" you will not be working in tax accounting, rather you will work in tax compliance.In my opinion, it is not very intellectually demanding job. For me, It was really exciting for the first 3-6 months but then it got monotonous. This is not to say that you will not work hard; there are a lot of daily tasks, checking tax forms for accuracy and completeness, and making sure the information complaint with tax laws. But, ultimately it's pretty much data entry all day. There will be high volumes of forms coming in where you will have to analyze the form and enter the data into the system.You will be trained on the S&P side pertaining to tax laws, -

Good workplace but some managers mess it

Good place to work. Career advancement opportunities should be better and clear. Management needs to be less bossy as they can play with your careers for their ego.

Great benefits, but career growth

In consulting, there is talk of growth, but it seems like it is still limited. Interesting opportunities are given more to those recently hired and past problems have yet to be fixed. Most people work at home still and company benefits are good.

Extreme instability and lack of communication ruin otherwise great company

2017-2022 was a period of non-stop mergers, acquisitions, and lay-offs. No one knew what was really going on or whether their job was safe. I was moved to different managers/teams three times without any consultation. They also told hundreds of people that they eventually laid off that they would have new jobs at the company. Leadership prioritizes buzzwords and rosy assessments that do not reflect the state of the organization at all. "Organization" is really not a word that should be used here. All this aside, if you can stomach putting it aside, it was a good place to work. Co-workers were great, diversity was strong, pay/benefits and work flexibility was very good. Shame the management was so poor.


Great pay, benefits, work/life balance


Poor management, poor communication, disorganized leadership and heavy siloing

Good company with good benefits

Good pay. A modern company with really good benefits. The culture was great with forward thinking management, at least in my area. I can't really speak for other areas

Great place to work

S&P is a very good place to work. Management is decent and receptive to new ideas (at least as far as bigger organizations go). Colleagues are high caliber and enjoy a decent work/life balance.

Good Company with Good Benefits

The organization really is ahead in caring for their employees with the best benefits I’ve seen. The leadership team is strong and cares about their employees and takes the time to listen to them.

Classic toxic management situation

It's a big company so this shouldn't be surprising but they don't actually care about you. Middle managers speak as they are trained to. You can't have real conversations bc they're robots programed to appease their own bosses. This company miscalculated an acquisition in 2022 with IHS and no longer had the budget to replace fleeing employees or to provide raises to those that stayed despite their quarterly updates always proving to be very profitable. It is a for-profit company after all, but you will be strung along and mislead about your future and opportunities the entire time you work their....unless you're good at brown nosing and willing to play their game. Then maybe you'll do just fine. Assuming you're okay with subjecting yourself to behaving in such a manner to help achieve someone else's goal that ultimately leads to them making wayyy more money than you. I guess that's capitalism though.


Work remotely. Can ignore your work to watch netflix

Great benefits, steep learning curve

Great benefits, workload will depend on specific team but manageable overall. Initial training is somewhat helpful, but there is a steep learning curve with some markets for those with little commodity experience. Can be daunting at first.

People are encouraged to do their best and they are passionate to do so. With that said, I have never felt like I was in competition with my colleagues and have been supported since day one of coming here.

Great place to start career

A very well established company with great entry level opportunities for young professionals. Most of the work is basic and repetitive but you are given opportunities to learn/develop
Was this review helpful?

Interesting but repetitive

As a contractor, you are given the occasion to carry out research in areas you are interested in. It's a great place to contribute to as a graduate, you are given total freedom over your schedule and sources. The downside is that the research tasks are repetitive, and limited, and will leave you frustrated for not being able to use your skills to their full potential. You are also very much kept in the dark about all upper and mid-level decisions, objectives, and developments.

Essentially remote with solid ancillary benefits

Base pay is very bad and not comparable to any of the competitors. Bonus if your area does well is very good. Work life balance is great, but can't do much of the life part until they pay us something respectable.


Unlimited vacation


Non competitive pay

Truly a People First Org

I love working here! Great culture, benefits, support from your team and beyond! It truly is a People First organization. Only complaint is pay is slightly lower. For me the benefits make up for the pay, but I could understand that being a con.
