    good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Proseveything good work more have fun the place is beautiful..the good environment Do keep in mind that the company reviews on all these sites are posted by individuals, including possibly disgruntled employees. So, use them as a tool to help gather more information about a company, but don't count on them as 100% accurate, because every employee's experience is different.

    New management in Chicago is top notch!

    Client Development Associate (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsThe 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider increasing compensation for teams that over perform.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Your own performance amd interest matters

    Technology Quality Analyst (Current Employee)
    Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    Pros- One of the best salary packages in India for a QA at any level
    - If you spend a good 2-3 years, your opinion about things matters and this feels very satisfying
    - Managers are very approachable and there is no attitude when it comes to helping the colleagues
    - Your self performance is valued a great deal (many people might not agree to this but its true, that if you are doing better than your peers then you are trusted with more responsibilities)
    - The domain knowledge is very good
    - Lateral movement across QA teams (this was pretty less earlier but is now beginning to increase)
    - X-Box is there :)

    Cons- People at the senior level (below the team lead) tend to micro manage things which is many times ignored by leads. This is actually the primary reason for new hires to think of an unfriendly and hostile environment.

    Advice to Senior Management- "Work from Home" is very very strict in gurgaon. Its almost not allowed. This should be a bit more flexible

    - On-shore visits should be increased for QA and should be uniform accross teams (right now there are very few teams that get this opportunity)

    - More opportunities for QA to move to another role (such as BA or Dev)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked there for net one year and during my period i have learned a lot about finance .

    Asset Management Executive (Former Employee)
    Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsThe advantages to work with capital iq is you are free to learn all aspects of financial statements practically how a data can be processed by the people manually which was i think the best part of the company and i got the the best working staff there all employees whether they are senior or manager level very cooperative and supportive now coming to the compensation they were giving a satisfactory remuneration to all employees as per there work load and talent.

    ConsThe only con which i felt was working in shifts specialty night shifts was hard to awake all night and processing difficult data it provokes errors also .

    Advice to Senior ManagementI do not think a year is enough to provide any advice or suggestion to any big organisation .

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A sweet option for part-timers/flexible proofreader types

    Transcription Proofreader (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent 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.

    ConsNot a full-time job but can eat up too much time when it's busy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe coaching opportunities were a good idea and should be continued/expanded.

    Startup Fun Culture with perfect Professionalism and Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIts 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

    ConsDon'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

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
