Manager Investment Grade Corporate Bonds (Former Employee) –  New York, NY7 December 2017
the most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction I had with the people I worked with on a day to day basis. the hardest part of the job was not being unable to promote and pay the associates who worked in my group fairly. The workplace culture was excellent most preformed and completed their daily tasks in a timely manner.

Data Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NY12 September 2017
S&P is fast paced working company. Dealing with ratings that have to go out in a timely matter is crucial and sensitive. Analyst need the ratings for the press release to enter the market and if those ratings and the press release are not ready in time, could mean a loss for the company.
Pros
no time clock
Cons
too many elevator banks

IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tokyo, Japan6 July 2017
- Excellent management.
- Working on financial applications.
- Tech stack is not bad for financial company. Architects will fly out from HQ to lecture and train new technical standards for the company.


- Working hours are from 9 to 6, sometimes overtime.
- Since the nature of business if finance, even IT department needs to dress semi formal.

- Good benefits and the best part is the managers care about your career growth within the company.
Pros
Excellent Management
Cons
IT geeks might not like the dress code.

Associate / Analytical Leader (Former Employee) –  New York, NY25 June 2017
S&P seems to click for some people. These people are always sought after and move through the ranks quickly. Other's can easily get lost in the organization and job advancement can be difficult.
