    Technology division: Excellent culture, work-life balance and learning

    Developer/BA/QA/Database Administrator (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    ProsTechnology team in Hyderabad division works on critical applications of the company, provides excellent growth for the smart and hard working candidates, and has a great work culture. More than 80% of the employees has come out of college over the years and retained by the company, it won't happen with out proper work life balance, work satisfaction. I'm one of them joined here more than 6 years ago from campus.
    Uses latest technology in market.
    Have more recent and exciting technologies and careers in Software industry for future like Data science and the company's culture allows you to move around teams/technologies as long as you've necessary technical and analytical skills.
    Developed many in house and great technologies, like web crawling, SOLR, Vertica.

    ConsYou'll see colleagues from reputed colleges in India, like IITs and IIITs, NITs. People usually get a bit confused about the popularity of the company, because this company not as famous as amazon, microsoft in India, but its parent company is Standard and Poors, MC Grawhills and quite a famous, good corporate company in United states. So you can carry the brand in future if you will work in US and you'll really get all the benefits of corporate company and product based software company culture here.
    If you're the person who want to seek onsite opportunities, there are no long term onsite opportunities as of today, 2013 March. You will get chance to work for few months like less than 6 in head quarters, New York, Wall street.

    A great opportunity to gain exposure to coding in the .NET environment.

    Summer Software Developer Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsIt did not feel corporate. The cubicles were low and we had floor-wide weekly meetings that were very open. Everyone was very welcome and helpful, the attitude everyone had was both stimulating and encouraging.

    ConsIf you were looking for a more formal place to work, Capital IQ is not it. The culture is very casual, which I liked, but I know some people may prefer dressing up every day and having stricter routines.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the culture the way it is! The work offered to interns was cool because we felt like we really accomplished a project at the end of the summer.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
