    Pros

    Great work hours that offers really good work/life balance. Flexibility and independence during business trips and managing client accounts.

    Cons

    The corporate structure is quickly changing and the company is stratifying layers of hierarchies, it's becoming more and more "corporate".

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to talk to employees and really listen to feedback.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ as an intern

    Pros

    Its the perfect mix of a professional work culture and startup fun. You learn a lot, get mentored a lot, get challenging work but see people full of energy around you playing games, shouting, laughing, throwing jokes, making fun - that is you never get bored. There will never be a lack of energy and fun There will never be a lack of learning and quality work

    Cons

    Don't go by the negative reviews. I had really low expectations from the company after reading them but am so glad now that I joined it

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, (sometimes) interesting content, not too taxing. I work as a proofreader for the transcription department. I listen to the audio of a conference call or presentation and check the accuracy of a transcription. Pretty straightforward, easy work, and most of the calls are pretty interesting. The work is cyclical, tied to quarterly earnings reports of publicly-traded companies, so it's not full time (more like 26-32-ish weeks out of the year), but when there's work, there's plenty of work. Pay is decent but it would be hard to have this be a single job. That's not their fault though, they're very upfront about the amount of work, and most of their people do this as a second/side job so they're usually pretty understanding so long as you stick to what you promise.

    Cons

    Not a full-time job but can eat up too much time when it's busy.

    Advice to Management

    The coaching opportunities were a good idea and should be continued/expanded.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people in the office are excited to come to work. We are having a record year in 2014, and us younger team members feel we have great leaders and mentors.

    Cons

    If you aren't going into the sales path it might be difficult to move up quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing compensation for teams that over perform.

    Pros

    Employee-centric - willingness to invest in the person for the benefit of the business. Solid leadership with several difference makers. Probably the right work/life balance. Excellent IP with several unique and proprietary data sets. New management from the outside looks promising.

    Cons

    Less intense than past experiences. Firm is likely about to see significant organizational change that often results in irrational behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Execute the structural changes you know the business needs. Everything is in place to do that and while change is hard, opportunities like this don't occur often - seize the day!!
