    Pros

    Few projects are good. Not all !
    We might not fall into those projects.

    Cons

    No Personal Growth
    Lots of Chowdary and non Chowdary politics in HYD center. They wont shows it but it runs behind !
    Good people left the company and are also leaving the company - high attrition rate
    Poor management
    Performance Rating is not based on actual performance. Again lots of politics here !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make things a bit transparent. Learn to appreciate people on their work.

    The driving force for someone to work harder and achieve higher goals is appreciation of work

    Pros

    The company has a pension plan with a decent match. Health benefits are great, and the compensation is good.

    Cons

    If you're a young ambitious person, I would really advise against joining. Be prepared to just coast along doing the same things, meaning bare minimum. It is very clear that the culture in this company rewards seniority over competency despite what they claim.

    Pros

    Good benefits, Brand Recognition, and many good people

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with their people, especially in the Sales arena. Processes such as Salesforce, have been implemented so poorly that using them actually make the sales, account management, order fulfillment, and billing effort more difficult and far less efficient. The company is also very poor at developing career paths for their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a better effort in recognizing that many of your long-standing employees actually ARE valuable, possess needed experience, clearly demonstrate loyalty, and really do add to the long term success of the company.

    Pros

    The team you work with becomes like family. Depending on the department and manager, they can be extremely flexible with you in terms of working from home. There are also some great travel opportunities, depending on your position.

    Cons

    Too many changes. The company is confused with who they are and who they want to be. Nothing fulfilling about your everyday work. There are no straight duties for your job description, they are always changing while you take on more responsibility and your salary remains close to the same .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to really look at the bigger picture, they are so focused on the client that they ignore the employees that gather and retain the clients. There is also a lot of decisions made without consulting the people those decisions affect. Advice would be to listen to your employees, they can also have great ideas!

    Pros

    The company has some very good products and has made some good acquisition in the past that will help existing solutions develop further. The Capital IQ brand is still held in high regard with clients.

    Cons

    The management are all legacy S&P and so they bring with them the culture that was always the problem with that company - lack of vision, lack of care for staff, lack of ambition, lack of humanity., and worst of all they will back-stab clients at the drop of a hat. If you like kissing your superiors back-side then this is the company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop living in the 80's and wizen up. Your staff are your most valuable asset so use them wisely. And stop nickel and dimming your clients and stabbing them in the back at every contract renewal/discussion - that's what's destroying your reputation in the market.
