    I worked at S&P Global Platts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good place to learn and good travelling opportunities

    Cons

    People get fired on the spot without warning. So you never know if you are next in line or not, even if you do a good job. Often qulity people get fired because of politics. You can't trust people A lot of people in management think very highly of themselves. Backstabbers are rewarded, as it is seen as being ambitious. Some people in management plan their work around where they want to travel, and not focused on the actual work.
