I have been working at S&P Capital IQ

Pros

It's a young company with a lot of energy.
The people are very smart and easy to get along with.
Management seems to really care about their employees.

Cons

Very disorganized.
Everyone needs to be copied on every email all the time (a slight exaggeration but it's very inefficient and causes more work)
Meetings are overdone and ineffective.
Can be ego-driven. Some people have issues with self-importance.
Some people have too much work to do while others seem to have nothing. The work is not evenly distributed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management training is required. It would also help to move away from being such a flat organization- it would help define roles more clearly and help hold people accountable. One manager can not effectively manage 50 to 100 people.
Processes need to be clearly defined. Growth happened so fast now it's really time to take a look at how to streamline things and become more effective.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind. Hard work, customer satisfaction and ethics are all lost on this company. They are based out of India and are costing us all jobs!

    Cons

    Capital IQ is on the edge of failure. They have a lack of focus on the customer and are only concerned about corporate profit which are down 40% from 2009. The product offering and data quality are well below industry standards and only matched by free internet products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the recent reorganization you know the writings on the wall. McGraw-Hill will spin you off and sell Capital IQ. Unfortunately they will never be able to recover the inflated price they paid for you. Cents on the dollar!
