    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

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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    If you want somewhere with good work life balance this is a good place to work. Most people arrive after 9am and leave before 5pm.

    Cons

    Too much red tape, too much process and management are more interested in internal politics over employee problems. Rarely does concern or comments get escalated upward, managers want to be yes men upwards

    Pros

    Management does value tech and realizes they will build the future of the company. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Management seems indecisive on direction. New direction has been promised for about 7 months now and nothing has come. The new CEO seemed promising but nothing has happened yet. Patience goes only so far.
