    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work culture is more like a young startup. One has the independence to propose his solutions and implement them after taking feedback. Such Entrepreneurial traits are strongly valued and encouraged.

    Cons

    Within 1-2 years, one will get a hang of the nature of work and it becomes easy to solve. After 1-2 years, it is difficult to get any challenging work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hands on managers who can jump into work will offer much help to employees compared to those who only know projects at theoretical level. I happened to work with a mix of both and the former ones offered more help in shaping me.

    Pros

    In S&P Capital IQ you will find great people working in a great and flexible environment. In general, you will feel secure without unpleasant surprises! At the same time you will be given the opportunities to stand out.

    Cons

    Bonuses are lower than banking environments while promotions are generally subject to years of experience instead of performance and skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that the management should pay more attention to the most talented employees and reward them because there are a lot of talented people who are looking for new opportunities just because of modest recognition.
