    Pros

    eveything good work more have fun the place is beautiful..the good environment Do keep in mind that the company reviews on all these sites are posted by individuals, including possibly disgruntled employees. So, use them as a tool to help gather more information about a company, but don't count on them as 100% accurate, because every employee's experience is different.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - One of the best salary packages in India for a QA at any level
    - If you spend a good 2-3 years, your opinion about things matters and this feels very satisfying
    - Managers are very approachable and there is no attitude when it comes to helping the colleagues
    - Your self performance is valued a great deal (many people might not agree to this but its true, that if you are doing better than your peers then you are trusted with more responsibilities)
    - The domain knowledge is very good
    - Lateral movement across QA teams (this was pretty less earlier but is now beginning to increase)
    - X-Box is there :)

    Cons

    - People at the senior level (below the team lead) tend to micro manage things which is many times ignored by leads. This is actually the primary reason for new hires to think of an unfriendly and hostile environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - "Work from Home" is very very strict in gurgaon. Its almost not allowed. This should be a bit more flexible

    - On-shore visits should be increased for QA and should be uniform accross teams (right now there are very few teams that get this opportunity)

    - More opportunities for QA to move to another role (such as BA or Dev)

    Current Employee - Developer/BA/QA/Database Administrator in Hyderābād

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

    Pros

    Technology team in Hyderabad division works on critical applications of the company, provides excellent growth for the smart and hard working candidates, and has a great work culture. More than 80% of the employees has come out of college over the years and retained by the company, it won't happen with out proper work life balance, work satisfaction. I'm one of them joined here more than 6 years ago from campus.
    Uses latest technology in market.
    Have more recent and exciting technologies and careers in Software industry for future like Data science and the company's culture allows you to move around teams/technologies as long as you've necessary technical and analytical skills.
    Developed many in house and great technologies, like web crawling, SOLR, Vertica.

    Cons

    You'll see colleagues from reputed colleges in India, like IITs and IIITs, NITs. People usually get a bit confused about the popularity of the company, because this company not as famous as amazon, microsoft in India, but its parent company is Standard and Poors, MC Grawhills and quite a famous, good corporate company in United states. So you can carry the brand in future if you will work in US and you'll really get all the benefits of corporate company and product based software company culture here.
    If you're the person who want to seek onsite opportunities, there are no long term onsite opportunities as of today, 2013 March. You will get chance to work for few months like less than 6 in head quarters, New York, Wall street.

    Pros

    Employee-centric - willingness to invest in the person for the benefit of the business. Solid leadership with several difference makers. Probably the right work/life balance. Excellent IP with several unique and proprietary data sets. New management from the outside looks promising.

    Cons

    Less intense than past experiences. Firm is likely about to see significant organizational change that often results in irrational behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Execute the structural changes you know the business needs. Everything is in place to do that and while change is hard, opportunities like this don't occur often - seize the day!!
