Current Contractor - Transcription Proofreader
Current Contractor - Transcription Proofreader
No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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

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

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation, great learning opportunities, great people used to be working here, however have left the company in recent months.

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic, simple things cannot get done due to multiple hurdles, infrastructure operations outsourced to a terrible vendor, senior management is out of touch with recent technological advancements, lot of politics played by middle management employees due to job insecurity.

    Advice to Management

    streamline the senior management by paying closer attention to the actual work being done by the so-called "directors" and "senior directors".
