    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.

    Pros

    flexible work hours and events

    Cons

    too many "restructures" i.e. firing people because they dont make money on any products too many upper management folks eating up all the money in the company that leaves nothing for people that actually work pay much below market average

    Advice to Management

    too many "restructures" will be disastrous

    Sales Director

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Little Management oversee. Decent opportunity to make money.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional management teams. No one really "cares about business".


  10. Great first job out of school with the ability to learn quickly

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - Established player in the financial data analytics space - Coming out of school, you will learn a lot about running a data company very quickly - If you don't know how something works, just ask and someone will teach you - Opportunity to own/shape a small piece of a large product offering

    Cons

    - Good strategy to align business units into a unified offering but execution was messy with poor communication and little accountability

    Advice to Management

    As it can be complex to merge various products and data sets, make sure you have the right structure and approach in place, and make sure that it's communicated early and often.

    Cost Cutting Mode - Lack of Direction

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time

    Pros

    Good work hours and ability to work at home when needed. Some of the employees are really great people, but these good people tend to leave as the direction of the company is unclear.

    Cons

    No business plan, low morale, not an environment to build a career. New company focus revolves around cost cutting, not growing the business as there is little investment being made. Also, management is insular and and does not react well to constructive criticism. People who focus on politics may do well there but being knowledgeable and working hard may actually harm your career. People who advance are the ones who are good at political gamesmanship. The good people tend to leave, and the turnover is increasing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the rank and file employees. There are many good people and ideas that are suppressed by their managers because they may shake up the status quo.
