    Pros

    The office and coworkers are all very fun. Team outings, loose atmosphere, work is fun too.

    Cons

    Pay is very meh and the fact that Cap IQ is attached to the McGraw-Hill parent company isn't great. A lot of cheesy corporate events and what have you that aren't anything but torturous.

    Advice to Management

    Try paying more if you want to retain a higher percent of employees. Also, tell the higher ups that day-long "leadership training" events are incredibly dull

    Pros

    Great entry-level positions because salary is above-industry rate. Very dynamic working environment and flexibility in work schedules.

    Cons

    Very limited mobility and opportunity for career growth. Once an employee reaches a certain level, there is no way to further improve than to seek employment elsewhere. Problematic software and application.

    Pros

    Competitive packages comparatively.
    Long-term job security as long as met expectations.

    Cons

    Not an MNC or Corporate environment inside.
    Top and middle managers untrained in people management. communication skills, administration and soft skills.
    Lot of traditional methods followed. Not up-to-date with technology in non-business operations.
    Overly Bossy and unprofessional nature of middle management.
    Comparatively poor infrastructure and office administration.
    Uncleanliness of cafeteria utensils. Bad maintenance of washrooms.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency to associates is essential. Over-secrecy of small things hurts employees motivation.
    Nothing wrong in openly and personally communicating with associates on a daily basis. Can be informal when not talking business.
    Should understand that associates deserves equal respect as middle and top managers.
    Globally-accepted management and leadership principles should be inculcated.
    Team mangers need not be overly bossy.

    Pros

    If you want somewhere with good work life balance this is a good place to work. Most people arrive after 9am and leave before 5pm.

    Cons

    Too much red tape, too much process and management are more interested in internal politics over employee problems. Rarely does concern or comments get escalated upward, managers want to be yes men upwards
