No new product developments, existing portfolio is pretty solid though

Software Lead (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsGood compensation, great learning opportunities, great people used to be working here, however have left the company in recent months.

ConsHighly bureaucratic, simple things cannot get done due to multiple hurdles, infrastructure operations outsourced to a terrible vendor, senior management is out of touch with recent technological advancements, lot of politics played by middle management employees due to job insecurity.

Advice to Senior Managementstreamline the senior management by paying closer attention to the actual work being done by the so-called "directors" and "senior directors".

Start-up that has become more corporate to compete with other big data providers

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time

ProsGreat learning opportunities, forward-thinking company, generally a very dynamic atmosphere where people who believe in the brand often stay for many years

ConsThe transition to become fully integrated into its parent company, S&P, was not received well by a majority of employees, causing many key leaders and talented employees to leave

Great place to work despite recent integration pain

Middle Management (Current Employee)

Advice to Senior ManagementHire on merit for senior positions and not just based on past loyalties

You are free to wear flip flops!

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsNo dress code - you can wear whatever the hell you like provided it's not indecent.
Quite flexible hours - nobody is watching over you to be sure you're at work at exactly 9:00. I usually come around 9:45-10, no issue.

ConsNot much in the way career advancement - this is why some older more experiences folks started leaving.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good internship program

Software Developer Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at S&P Capital IQ as an intern for less than a year

Pros- The program itself is well structured.
- Get to choose which projects you want to work on (there is a list and each intern will give their top 3, it mostly worked out for my batch that everyone got something from that list)
- Very casual dressing in a building full of formal dressers.

Cons- HR can be a stickler.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet another floor! There is no space left for even new full time hires what more for interns!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
