    great work-life balance, but horribly terrible manager and significantly under paid

    Client Development Associate (Current Employee)
    Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

    Prosgreat team mates, great culture, great working environment

    Consremarkably terrible manager to cope with. Heavily under paid. Don't think it would be a great place to work if your manager is trying to build up her reputation and look good with your sacrifice. working with a manager who doesn't give a sh*t about you is miserable.

    Advice to Senior Managementfind someone who would really care for her subordinates and make them feel it's safe and worth putting 100% efforts working in your company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Growth - forget it
    Learning - totally zero
    Work - data entry type not that good

    Depressing outside of India

    Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsCapital IQ has an amazing Indian operation. Morale there remains pretty good. Do yourself a favor and sort the reviews by location and you will see that folks in India generally are happy and have good feelings about the business and even the CEO (who they don't know.)

    ConsLook at how people in NY feel. Most people disapprove of the CEO and wouldn't recommend the company to a friend. NY is where most of the sales, technology and product development is located. NY is also the same office as Lou the CEO and much of the senior managers. NY'ers have a much better sense of the level of incompetence, politics and lack of "realness" that the senior team has mastered. It is very sad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRead the reviews. React.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unorganized and Terrible Working Conditions

    Research Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThere were some nice restaurants near the headquarters. that's about it. It was absolutely the worst experience i have ever had in my 15 years in the financial industry.....True nightmare

    ConsSenior management is unorganized. They do not know how to properly give direction or set clear goals. There is no set training process and lower end managers are left to fend for themselves. There is also heavy favortism and sexism. Management doesn't encourage employee growth or career advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the employees when they ask for clear goals. They need direction. There is a reason why there is such high turnover, it is because senior management doesn't have a clue with what they are doing. Learn to pay attention to the staff. Also, all teams should have managers to go to for direction....when one manager leaves it is vital that he/she is replaced or substituted immediately. If you want to keep your top talent, you will need to start paying closer to market rates

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pathetic pathetic...bunch of goons running the place!

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood for unambitious people. If you are even 5% motivated and want to add value to your Resume dont join this place.

    Cons1) Management
    2)) People: Everybody is a junior who think they know it all...wrong on all levels...there are no good mentors and non technical people are given techincal jobs.
    3) Some business teams are good but majority have no vision

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire all and get a new management

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Again, mismanaged and heading off a cliff

    General Expert On Everything At the Company (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsNone, over the past 1 1/2 years

    ConsParanoid culture, cost cutting with ill reward, talented employees leaving, lack of product innovation

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are likely in the wrong business and are set up for failure. CEO is a glorified talk-show host.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The company is going swiftly downhill since S&P take over

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros- No pressure, Chill environment
    - Coworkers are nice

    ConsThe company lacks vision or direction since the S&P take over. The CEO is arrogant and is not afraid to reduce salary across the board at the cost of driving every last talent away. Both of the guys who interviewed me quit within 6 month. People are leaving every week, it's truly sad. To cut cost, the company outsources a lot of development to india. The quality is greatly reduced. Then, as a bandaid fix, they hired Microsoft consultants at 500 dollars an hour, while handing out yearly raise less than the natural inflation rate!
    It feels like the upper management are clueless of what they are doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementResign. You guys are so terrible it's helpless!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Product Consultant

    Product Consultant (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsNo dress code. Not a serious job (take that as you will). Good people.

    ConsThe company is terrible. The leadership isn't there, the site is always broken, customers are leaving. They need to get back to basics- realizing that they are a software company. Too much emphasis on sales. You can't have 40% turnover in technology in under nine months and expect to be the same company. Too many old men making decisions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe upfront about the job people are applying for. I was an overachiever and even offered a promotion within the company which my boss blocked. It is a mess, don't work there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
