    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Manageable pressure, friendly people and lot of opportunity to meet new people

    Cons

    Bonuses and hikes are not good. Even though you have put a lot of effort, it is usually predetermined and there is not enough transparency yet. Although they claim to have a lot of transparency but there isn't much. There has been a lot of cost cutting going around and therefore the company isn't what it use to be. I feel prior to 2012, there it was a really good time to work but things are not going great for now.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Senior Business Analyst in New York, NY (US)

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

    Pros

    Innovative company if you're in sales, marketing or product, good products, good salary, nice location in NYC

    Cons

    If you work in sales or in product the jobs are probably amazing. If you are behind the scenes working in tech or operations its a nightmare. So much bureaucracy so little time. The environment is fast paced, but the tech teams can't keep up. Management is old school S&P management so don't let the CIQ name fool you. Most of the good management left when they were forced to come together. It used to be a great place to work, now its terrible, with poor management and you have to basically ask to go to the bathroom. Too many micromanagers and managers who don't understand how to manage. Most managers are extremely passive aggressive and old school. If you are looking for a young innovative tech team to work on, this isn't it. If you are in product it will be an innovative team but your stuff won't be developed correctly or on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off, let people do their jobs, technology management needs the big ole heave ho. Bring in young, smart people, instead of old school boys club cronies.
