    Pros

    Company has a ton of assets. They just need to put them together, and get organized to take things to the next level.

    Cons

    The game of fluffing the story up to make it sound better than it is goes up the chain so there is no focus on real problems. Too much spin. There also seems to be an affinity for hiring people that are under-achieving ivy league kids. Top of the pack get real jobs, and this company is clearly meant to succeed in a blue collar financial services way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house if someone is doing a poor job. Entitlement, and seniority should be cut off at inception.

    Over glorified customer service agent

    Former Employee - Product Consultant in New York, NY

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good location.
    Very respected company
    Nice building in NY

    Cons

    Feel like a customer service agent.
    You do not even really need a college education to do this.
    This is not a 9-5 job, you will work some weekends and sometimes get late night shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sugar coating this position. It is just a customer service job and let people know before day 1.

    Pros

    The hours are not long and they are flexible with taking time off. The dress code is casual. The company is fairly young.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for growth. Not always the most structured roles. Direction was not great when first started but they are improving. Can be boring work for a finance professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more direction for new employees (it took me 6-12 months before I had any idea of what the role entailed).

    A great company that is being torn up by senior management changes

    Pros

    Smart engineers, competent tech leads, great variety of projects and opportunities, casual and fun atmosphere working on a popular and valuable product.

    Cons

    The McGraw-Hill Financial reorganization has forced out all of our senior management and replaced them with people who have made it clear that they think of technology as a commodity and not one of our core strengths. The day-to-day work and environment for engineers hasn't changed much, but everyone thinks that it's only a matter of time before things get much worse.

    Pros

    It's a young company with a lot of energy.
    The people are very smart and easy to get along with.
    Management seems to really care about their employees.

    Cons

    Very disorganized.
    Everyone needs to be copied on every email all the time (a slight exaggeration but it's very inefficient and causes more work)
    Meetings are overdone and ineffective.
    Can be ego-driven. Some people have issues with self-importance.
    Some people have too much work to do while others seem to have nothing. The work is not evenly distributed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management training is required. It would also help to move away from being such a flat organization- it would help define roles more clearly and help hold people accountable. One manager can not effectively manage 50 to 100 people.
    Processes need to be clearly defined. Growth happened so fast now it's really time to take a look at how to streamline things and become more effective.
