I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- At the beginning you learn a lot about financial statements
- They tried to give you some benefits, like gym membership, office parties once in a while, etc.
- Good wages and bonuses for the local economy.

Cons

- Secretive way of doing stuff, paranoid behavior in regards to use of computers.
- They expect you to be a cog in the machine. All ideas need to come from above, from some Ivy League kid in the US. Consequently, if you work like a monkey you will advance, even if your qualifications are not the best.
- Class membership seems to be important (but I suppose this is the same in every transnational corporation).
- It gets quickly boring and repetitive. A robot could do it, and in fact you start imagining apps that could do the job. Is not like they´re going to implement it anyway. Time to start surfing the Net!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Meritocracy. Learn from companies like Google. If somebody has an idea, at least think about it. You are going to try to implement it anyway three years later when there is no way out. Some people are not good as cog machines, and that is why they leave.

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Capital IQ has been a great place to work and I have learnt loads and loads of technical stuff here. I can’t forget those days which I spent here where I learnt skills and had a lot of fun as well.

    Initial training is given before getting into teams which is very essential and good to have.

    Cons

    learning curve start to flatten by time, flat hierarchy they say but little politics involved, hard to change between teams that have varied work
