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

Pros

Company has a ton of assets. They just need to put them together, and get organized to take things to the next level.

Cons

The game of fluffing the story up to make it sound better than it is goes up the chain so there is no focus on real problems. Too much spin. There also seems to be an affinity for hiring people that are under-achieving ivy league kids. Top of the pack get real jobs, and this company is clearly meant to succeed in a blue collar financial services way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house if someone is doing a poor job. Entitlement, and seniority should be cut off at inception.

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

    Pros

    - No pressure, Chill environment
    - Coworkers are nice

    Cons

    The company lacks vision or direction since the S&P take over. The CEO is arrogant and is not afraid to reduce salary across the board at the cost of driving every last talent away. Both of the guys who interviewed me quit within 6 month. People are leaving every week, it's truly sad. To cut cost, the company outsources a lot of development to india. The quality is greatly reduced. Then, as a bandaid fix, they hired Microsoft consultants at 500 dollars an hour, while handing out yearly raise less than the natural inflation rate!
    It feels like the upper management are clueless of what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. You guys are so terrible it's helpless!
