    I have been working at S&P Global Platts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - exposure to various commodities - learning from people with different backgrounds, expertise and experiences - good launching pad for the next role

    Cons

    - too much politics, lots of approval layers, not enough IT resource, therefore it's slow - some managers don't even know how to use excel properly.. - change comes veeeery slowly - low compensation

    Advice to Management

    less politics, higher compensation (it's under industry average), more transparency on career progression. Some managers don't even know how to use excel properly..

    I worked at S&P Global Platts full-time

    Pros

    Nice working environment: people are rather chilled, less stress and pressure than in traditional financial companies. The office was refurbished so we had access to top facilities.

    Cons

    The size of the organization, the fact that is is global and that you need to deal with all continents to get something done can be frustrating. But any global company would suffer the same issue.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent to your staff about restructuring and vision.

    Pros

    Company has strong market position, huge potential to develop in other areas too. Great work life balance! Company reorganizing with positive hopes to make healthy work environment and develop new business areas.

    Cons

    Highly political environment! No clear transparency on management strategy. There is a old line of management used to old fashioned business methods that in my opinion encourage certain behaviours and that is hurting the company. Some people are very laid back, reactive rather than proactive. Today, its more of a blaming culture, people act on feelings rather than logic and what is good for the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Be more vocal about your vision, engage the employees they can be a tremendeous asset. Get rid of old style and bad hires, promote more vibrant dynamic work culture.
