I have been working at S&P Global full-time (More than a year)
Of course, with any company I'm sure a lot of the experience depends on the team and management structure that you fall into. I consider myself lucky as I got put on a new and fast growing team. Around the year mark, I was promoted to Senior Engineer and received a 12% raise. Additional Pros:
- no micromanagement
- mid year and year-end reviews which are tied to a raise/bonus structure
- 2 week long support shifts every 2 months or so, which I think is rare for engineers supporting Production infrastructure.
- My team had employees in both US and APAC regions, meaning even when I was on support I never had to worry about issues occurring late in the evening or in the middle of the night
- competitive pay
- incredible benefits right off the bat: 4 weeks PTO, ~10 fully paid holidays, you get your birthday off, 401k and health insurance, "mental health" days, Wellness funds, etc
- great work culture from the top down
Again, I realize that other employees who don't fall under the same management structure as me might not have the same experience as far as career growth and freedom
Lots of mergers, re-orgs, upper level management changes and rearranging. This happened often and of course always gives employees the feeling of "am I redundant? Will I lose my job". I'm sure this is standard across most if not all large enterprises though.
Advice to Management
Keep doing a good job and showing that your employees are cared for. With the current benefit and pay structure, I believe you will continue to be able to find and retain great talent.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at S&P Global (Centennial, CO (US)) in February 2017.
Initial phone screening. Salary range too low for candidate with experience matching job requirement. Recruiter agreed they need to up the salary offer or hire fresh grad with no experience.
