    Pros

    Ping pong table, pool table, video games. Work hrs are pretty manageable

    Cons

    Dead end job, no vision in place, way too much miscommunication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and look at the big picture, instead of just profits, then maybe people will stay longer than 1-2 yrs at the company

  2. Satisfied with company.

    Pros

    Good brand name leader in credit space and indices; flexible hours and working from home

    Cons

    New president is too micro management and cost saving Initiatives are rather pointless (lowest possible airfare and hotels ) - this is only applicable to junior staff and management are still travelling with luxurious business class and own preferred airlines and hotels. Outsourcing IT service makes work inefficient and slow in getting issues fixed. Management team members choices are 90% based out of favoritism, growing many incompetent leaders that lay off real talents. To have old school S&P staff managing Capital IQ technologies sound like getting Dessert chef frying world class steak which is impossible

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of incompetent leaders SERIOUSLY and fix the product team which hasn't done much over the past couple of years due to internal politics

    Hard to understand the vision of the firm on a daily basis. Sometimes main sales techniques and success stories get lost in translation. Feel a bit of distance from other corporate offices.
