Pros: Good work/life balance. Kuerig coffee maker and free lunch on Wednesdays. Good benefits.
Cons: Very small office. Environment is limiting.
While S&P has made efforts to decentralize from its New York office, recently opening offices in Denver and Dallas, most of the better opportunities, positions, and intracompany mobility takes place in the NY office. The other offices are much smaller, and this can lead to career stagnation and, occasionally, lay offs. In the end, NY calls the shots.
