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

I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 5 years

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ as an intern

    Pros

    Its the perfect mix of a professional work culture and startup fun. You learn a lot, get mentored a lot, get challenging work but see people full of energy around you playing games, shouting, laughing, throwing jokes, making fun - that is you never get bored.
    There will never be a lack of energy and fun
    There will never be a lack of learning and quality work

    Cons

    Don't go by the negative reviews. I had really low expectations from the company after reading them but am so glad now that I joined it
