    Pros

    Good brand name leader in credit space and indices; flexible hours and working from home

    Cons

    New president is too micro management and cost saving Initiatives are rather pointless (lowest possible airfare and hotels ) - this is only applicable to junior staff and management are still travelling with luxurious business class and own preferred airlines and hotels. Outsourcing IT service makes work inefficient and slow in getting issues fixed. Management team members choices are 90% based out of favoritism, growing many incompetent leaders that lay off real talents. To have old school S&P staff managing Capital IQ technologies sound like getting Dessert chef frying world class steak which is impossible

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of incompetent leaders SERIOUSLY and fix the product team which hasn't done much over the past couple of years due to internal politics

    Pros

    great team mates, great culture, great working environment

    Cons

    remarkably terrible manager to cope with. Heavily under paid. Don't think it would be a great place to work if your manager is trying to build up her reputation and look good with your sacrifice. working with a manager who doesn't give a sh*t about you is miserable.

    Advice to Management

    find someone who would really care for her subordinates and make them feel it's safe and worth putting 100% efforts working in your company.

    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 Management

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