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

Pros

Good work/life balance.
Pays well enough.

Cons

Lou Eccleston, CEO, and Bob Coppola, CTO, in particular, are clueless to what really is going on within the company, and proven by their actions (or lack thereof), have no idea how to run a technology company.
Resources are spread too thin and product development has essentially ceased to exist.
Political nature of a large and old company makes it extremely inefficient to do almost anything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring current or former Thomson employees. That company is a mess and we will just end up their same dismal position if we do not change our ways

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    No dress code. Not a serious job (take that as you will). Good people.

    Cons

    The company is terrible. The leadership isn't there, the site is always broken, customers are leaving. They need to get back to basics- realizing that they are a software company. Too much emphasis on sales. You can't have 40% turnover in technology in under nine months and expect to be the same company. Too many old men making decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront about the job people are applying for. I was an overachiever and even offered a promotion within the company which my boss blocked. It is a mess, don't work there.
