Passion, potential and longterm opportunity gone; standard S&P mentality arrived with departure of old managment.

Pros

Capital IQ was a great experience for me. I learnt a lot and had the opportunity to be part of a fast growing organization within a larger enterprise. Capital IQ was and is well respected in the financial community and has good name recognition (although somewhat less known here than in the US where it was founded.)

Cons

Earlier this year, all of the senior managers left upon disagreements with the parent company about future direction. Previous turnover had been almost none in many years. Capital IQ used to be a coherent, complete organization and has been broken apart and included in a larger part of Standard and Poors. The passion for the business has gone and, whilst the new leadership at the Capital IQ level may have its heart in the right place, the same cannot be said for the next level up.

Advice to Management

Although some changes to align with overall direction are understandable, do not lose what made Capital IQ able to compete and grow so successfully for a long time against much larger players.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They are willing to promote people quickly, although this generally means that positions needing experience and qualifications are held by unqualified staff.

    Cons

    They love to talk about how scrappy they are, but the complete opposite is the truth - there's no energy or buzz in the office, it's like working in a retirement home which is bizarre considering most employees are in their twenties.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions, stop talking all the time and doing nothing.
