Great place to work with a great culture of success and intellectual challenge
Director of Data Ops and Cash-flow Analytics (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – April 19, 2014
This was a great place to work with a culture of success. Co-workers and the intellectual challenges that the work presented made work enjoyable. The only down side was that this unit's product was Euro-centric at a time when Europe was not doing well thsu creating a lot of uncertainty.

**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
Company stripping union employees with constant reorgs
Ex employee (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 6, 2018
Company reorgs constantly at the whim of whatever new business initiative someone woke up with that month. Tough to keep up with the flip-flop of concentrations and attempts to catch up to softwares already in use elsewhere. There is fear and low moral as they are decimating the Guild with layoffs and have almost eliminated their most senior employees. Shame on them for not compensating almost - there future retirees and for putting them in a market where their age is a disadvatage. No thanks for supporting the company for the better part of their adult lives. They say they value their employees, but it's just hot air. Tip: It's a get-in, get-out for those coming in. Get what you can from it and move on.

Credit Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 21, 2018
I was hired as a Credit Analyst. It's a good place to start out of college because there is a month of training and a structured mentorship program. The company culture can be beige but that is perhaps expected with a financial services firm.
Vice President, Analytics Engineering Systems (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – June 1, 2018
Their compensation is good and the people that they hire tend to be really talented. They grow by acquisition which is both interesting and challenging. It seems as if they have been fortunate in the people who they gain by acquisition as most stay and do well
