Pros

Business leadership has been good at articulating strategy in the last few years. Urgency is there.

Cons

There has been a fair amount of re-organizations due to leadership changes within the last 5+ years. Also, unless you are part of a key priority, you could be left behind. There has been a relatively high level of voluntary attrition to staff in the last year or so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on ensuring there is a balanced scorecard on the key management team across all areas of the firm especially in areas where there is a greater than normal level of staff attrition.

    Paranoid culture, cost cutting with ill reward, talented employees leaving, lack of product innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are likely in the wrong business and are set up for failure. CEO is a glorified talk-show host.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than an 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!
