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

    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...

    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

    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

    If you take your opportunities you can go a long way. This is an employer that wants to retain, develop and reward it's top talent. Sit back and don't be surprised if you're in the back seat. I've seen the best rise very quickly.
    The balance of power is shifting. Europe is rising.

    Cons

    Like many large corporations, still slow to respond to opportunities. Not enough market hires who have sat in our client's shoes. Current uncertainty is on its way to resuloution but we're losing ground.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a voice. Don't let the consultants dictate everything; they have less vested interest in the long term success than your people. There are some excellent employees in your ranks who know the business better than external parties/hires; identify them and make sure you get their input. Keep decentralising from the U.S. but improve global collaboration, not just at an executive level. Make sure we make up ground before we lose what is left of our competitive advantage. And finally, if you want engaged employees, give them shares. It is that simple.
