Pros

Business leadership has been good at articulating strategy in the last few years. Urgency is there.

Cons

There has been a fair amount of re-organizations due to leadership changes within the last 5+ years. Also, unless you are part of a key priority, you could be left behind. There has been a relatively high level of voluntary attrition to staff in the last year or so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on ensuring there is a balanced scorecard on the key management team across all areas of the firm especially in areas where there is a greater than normal level of staff attrition.

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - At the beginning you learn a lot about financial statements
    - They tried to give you some benefits, like gym membership, office parties once in a while, etc.
    - Good wages and bonuses for the local economy.

    Cons

    - Secretive way of doing stuff, paranoid behavior in regards to use of computers.
    - They expect you to be a cog in the machine. All ideas need to come from above, from some Ivy League kid in the US. Consequently, if you work like a monkey you will advance, even if your qualifications are not the best.
    - Class membership seems to be important (but I suppose this is the same in every transnational corporation).
    - It gets quickly boring and repetitive. A robot could do it, and in fact you start imagining apps that could do the job. Is not like they´re going to implement it anyway. Time to start surfing the Net!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meritocracy. Learn from companies like Google. If somebody has an idea, at least think about it. You are going to try to implement it anyway three years later when there is no way out. Some people are not good as cog machines, and that is why they leave.
