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

    Pros

    The work culture is more like a young startup. One has the independence to propose his solutions and implement them after taking feedback. Such Entrepreneurial traits are strongly valued and encouraged.

    Cons

    Within 1-2 years, one will get a hang of the nature of work and it becomes easy to solve. After 1-2 years, it is difficult to get any challenging work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hands on managers who can jump into work will offer much help to employees compared to those who only know projects at theoretical level. I happened to work with a mix of both and the former ones offered more help in shaping me.

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

    Pros

    There are good chances to grow in the company up to 2-3 levels, from entry level to a Senior level.
    The management was accommodating.
    Good work life balance.
    Target based role, every thing will be fine as long as you are able to achieve your monthly targets... quantitatively and qualitatively ..

    Cons

    Post the Senior Associate or Analyst level, it is very very tough to get promoted or to move out from this company to any other.

    It would take about 3-6 years till you can get another promotion.

    The experience from this place is pretty much useless, it is close to impossible to move to another company, unless you have some additional certifications (such as CA, CFA, etc).

    There is a certain amount of preference for male employees, when it comes to special projects.

    You need to be in the good books of the management to get promotions and leaves accepted, else things could become awful!

    Constant change in policies.

    Very conservative environment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please assign projects to all members of the team. Do not selectively assign it to a special group of people.
    There should be more motivational factors

    The work completion and milestones were most of the time off schedule leading to loads of work to be accumulated at the last phase of the project.

    More interaction and work delivery between team members of a project would be helpful
