Too much change
Product Owner (Current Employee) –  New York, NY9 March 2019
There has been continuous management changes within the organization. It is difficult to get into a rhythm when the senior management is always changing. Roles and responsibilities are also unclear.

This was my 2nd internship during college and I learned new skillsets on data modeling and data science, and this word never even exist to me until I started working here so it's a great start for exposure on data work.

Not as it used to be
Senior Business Analyst -Project Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NY23 October 2017
This company used to be a very well staffed highly organized company with a lot of process. The work life balance was fantastic and it just lacked leading edge technology. Senior management is now attempting to be competitive by introducing lean company practices without understanding how to do it properly. The people that work on the front lines remain the strongest reason to work there. They are friendly, smart, and hard working.
Pros
high pay; good benefits; great people
Cons
Unrealistic project goals and timelines; high burn-out rate

Overall, the company is a great place to work. The team of EA's are amazing on the Ratings side. There are a lot of company-wide changes and a lot of downsizing, but overall, a great place to work.

Lack of junior and senior camaraderie
Credit Analyst - Financial Services Group (Current Employee) –  New York, NY31 August 2017
There seemed to be a lack of strong mentorship and care on junior analysts from senior employees. They were mostly complacent with their roles and were in their comfort zone.

Great place to work
Compliance Officer (Former Employee) –  Pune, Maharashtra17 June 2017
A great place to work as a Compliance Officer but very limited in terms of organisational growth as the industry itself is very limited in scope not for someone who wants to get into financial crime compliance.

Ratings Analyst (Former Employee) –  London26 April 2017
Standard & Poor's remains essential to the debt markets, and its scale and brand means it will always be a significant player. It provides a great grounding into financial analysis, though adherence to strict analytical structure means less opportunity for entrepreneurial flair.
