A mixed bag, some brilliant people in an environment that is struggling to find direction after internal re-org

Pros

There is a lot to learn here, the projects are challenging, and there are some really great people. Working in the heart of downtown Manhattan is pretty cool too.

Cons

There was a re-org in 2011 and since then a lot of top talent has left the company. This left a knowledge vacuum that the company has been struggling to fill. So far, the upper management has done a horrible job handling this. They are very disconnected and uninspiring. They haven't focused on hiring new, smart people. They've ignored how bad the new outsourced MIS solution is. Basically, the current environment is one where its very hard to get work done.

Advice to Management

It's been 2 years since the re-org. Stop ignoring the problems and writing them off as growing pains. Instead, solicit feedback from all tiers of employees and take meaningful action to correct the issues.

    Pros

    Capital IQ has an amazing Indian operation. Morale there remains pretty good. Do yourself a favor and sort the reviews by location and you will see that folks in India generally are happy and have good feelings about the business and even the CEO (who they don't know.)

    Cons

    Look at how people in NY feel. Most people disapprove of the CEO and wouldn't recommend the company to a friend. NY is where most of the sales, technology and product development is located. NY is also the same office as Lou the CEO and much of the senior managers. NY'ers have a much better sense of the level of incompetence, politics and lack of "realness" that the senior team has mastered. It is very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Read the reviews. React.
