    Pros

    Work/life balance, decent pay and benefits, some interesting projects. Good place to start a career

    Cons

    Not very new technologies, lack of or unclear career paths, lots of changes in upper management

    Advice to Management

    Stop being hypocritical - lots of buzzwords that sound like major changes, but resistant to any actual progress

    Pros

    Decent pay Immediate 401K vesting Commission structure isn't on a net basis...meaning you can sell $100K, have $200K in cancels, and get paid your full commission....like I said, a sinking ship

    Cons

    - No culture - Legacy mindset - Product has not evolved (clients seem okay with that but it has a very early 2000s feel) - Management is a joke

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate your management. Wouldn't allow remote employees either. Also, order management and processes are super outdated. Salesforce poorly implemented and contracts are manually edited in MS Word....yikes.

    Pros

    The office and coworkers are all very fun. Team outings, loose atmosphere, work is fun too.

    Cons

    Pay is very meh and the fact that Cap IQ is attached to the McGraw-Hill parent company isn't great. A lot of cheesy corporate events and what have you that aren't anything but torturous.

    Advice to Management

    Try paying more if you want to retain a higher percent of employees. Also, tell the higher ups that day-long "leadership training" events are incredibly dull

    Pros

    Great benefits, great company to work with. Lot's of mobility within the company, amazing work life balance!

    Cons

    Not a lot of downsides other than a few specific individuals now and then, most of them don't last long so not a huge concern.

    Advice to Management

    try to benefit individuals to help motivate, team benefits are not great motivators.
