I have been working at S&P Capital IQ

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).

    Pros

    Best co-workers that one could ask for, work/life balance is more like life/work, little to no accountability for your actions.

    Cons

    The culture at CIQ encourages you to perform at a mediocre level. There are very smart people here who work their tails off, and it isn't rewarded in the slightest. Tenure seems to be the biggest factor when it comes to titles, compensation, respect, etc. Don't expect a shred of meritocracy at this company, and forget being adequately compensated for your job, this place has gone from being a standout firm to an absolute clown show in barely two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and realize that unless you start respecting (and paying) your top talent, its all going to leave the building. You think losing 2-3 key people a week would send a signal.

    Pros

    Lots of fantastic, smart and passionate people. Very easy going and laid back without much bureaucracy...for now. It's awesome to own a project and see it through.

    Cons

    Management is tearing the company apart and hemorrhaging the people that made Capital IQ great left and right through a poorly planned integration. Most people that are capable of assisting are just trying to position themselves in a better place rather than trying to keep everything together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually do something with all the feedback that you have instead of steamrolling everyone and accepting your losses.
