    I worked at S&P Capital IQ

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    The Work environment is terrific. It is one of the best payers in its category and lives up to its name in it.
    The office culture is very professional and the company takes good care of its employees.

    Cons

    The learning curve is not that great. It tends to slack down after time. This limitation specially applies for a manual qa as majority of the work is black box with limited automation exposure.
