Current Contractor - Transcription Proofreader
Current Contractor - Transcription Proofreader

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Decent pay, (sometimes) interesting content, not too taxing.

I work as a proofreader for the transcription department. I listen to the audio of a conference call or presentation and check the accuracy of a transcription. Pretty straightforward, easy work, and most of the calls are pretty interesting. The work is cyclical, tied to quarterly earnings reports of publicly-traded companies, so it's not full time (more like 26-32-ish weeks out of the year), but when there's work, there's plenty of work. Pay is decent but it would be hard to have this be a single job. That's not their fault though, they're very upfront about the amount of work, and most of their people do this as a second/side job so they're usually pretty understanding so long as you stick to what you promise.

Cons

Not a full-time job but can eat up too much time when it's busy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The coaching opportunities were a good idea and should be continued/expanded.

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

    Pros

    Culture, office, work load, time in office (very flexible on when to come and when to leave). As long as you got your work done on time, people were cool with you.

    Cons

    Mgmt switched over in early 2012 leading to huge turnover. New leaders were stuffy and resistant to feedback.

    Good place to start your career.
    Good amount of young professionals.

    Hard to progress in the company.
    The department I was in had a lot of internal conflicts. Management did little to nothing to resolve it.

    Company to create a career paths for people which can eliminate bias and conflicts.
