    Pros

    Few projects are good. Not all !
    We might not fall into those projects.

    Cons

    No Personal Growth
    Lots of Chowdary and non Chowdary politics in HYD center. They wont shows it but it runs behind !
    Good people left the company and are also leaving the company - high attrition rate
    Poor management
    Performance Rating is not based on actual performance. Again lots of politics here !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make things a bit transparent. Learn to appreciate people on their work.
    "Justice delayed is justice denied"
    The driving force for someone to work harder and achieve higher goals is appreciation of work

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great salary package (at least in India)
    Fixed timings, good facilities (commuting options available).
    Not much work pressure,

    Cons

    a) No learning. Senior management has no interest in investing in employees and assisting in development. No training after initial 2 months-4 months.

    b) Stunning level of politics. Merit is no longer a consideration. Insecure/Arrogant senior management is more focused on surrounding themselves with mediocre cronies.

    c) Massive exodus of talent. Most of the technology team has quit as mentioned by other reviewers. Same trend beginning to appear in research/analytics.

    d) Lack of transparency and honesty (a marked change from the pre-2009 times). Management can't stop sending "communications" but these are almost always irrelevant (except for informing about yet another restrucring and/or senior level exit).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a disgrace. You'd burn the company down just to "manage" the ashes. Stop now.

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time

    Pros

    The company has a pension plan with a decent match. Health benefits are great, and the compensation is good.

    Cons

    If you're a young ambitious person, I would really advise against joining. Be prepared to just coast along doing the same things, meaning bare minimum. It is very clear that the culture in this company rewards seniority over competency despite what they claim.
