    Pros

    great work environment. competitive salary. great location. The benefits were stellar. I was treated very well as a new-comer.

    Cons

    more difficult to advance career. you feel a little dumber after working here. inexperienced lower- level management. have managers take a course on management. Simple things like taking notes at meetings and setting deadlines, with weekly reports, should seem obvious to managers, but are often overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    Try and create new markets, not just expand market share in already saturated markets. The plan of taking away from competitors will only go so far.

    Pros

    1. Flat structure 2. Nice and helpful co-workers & supervisors 3. a bit laid back

    Cons

    I don't really have any to be honest. It's a great company and especially great for entry level. However, recently, because of the some management level changes, some employees are leaving.

    Pros

    Senior management cares about the staff and is focused on addressing long standing gaps created by the old guard. Lots of positive change has been happening over the last year.

    Cons

    The 1% that relied on nepotism and know they are exposed by the changes are good at making noise and hurting morale.

    Advice to Management

    Stick the course -it's already much improved...

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ as an intern (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 Management

    Get another floor! There is no space left for even new full time hires what more for interns!

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

    Pros

    No 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.

    Cons

    Not much in the way career advancement - this is why some older more experiences folks started leaving.
