    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The advantages to work with capital iq is you are free to learn all aspects of financial statements practically how a data can be processed by the people manually which was i think the best part of the company and i got the the best working staff there all employees whether they are senior or manager level very cooperative and supportive now coming to the compensation they were giving a satisfactory remuneration to all employees as per there work load and talent.

    Cons

    The only con which i felt was working in shifts specialty night shifts was hard to awake all night and processing difficult data it provokes errors also .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not think a year is enough to provide any advice or suggestion to any big organisation .

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, (sometimes) interesting content, not too taxing.

    I work as a proofreader for the transcription department. I listen to the audio of a conference call or presentation and check the accuracy of a transcription. Pretty straightforward, easy work, and most of the calls are pretty interesting. The work is cyclical, tied to quarterly earnings reports of publicly-traded companies, so it's not full time (more like 26-32-ish weeks out of the year), but when there's work, there's plenty of work. Pay is decent but it would be hard to have this be a single job. That's not their fault though, they're very upfront about the amount of work, and most of their people do this as a second/side job so they're usually pretty understanding so long as you stick to what you promise.

    Cons

    Not a full-time job but can eat up too much time when it's busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The coaching opportunities were a good idea and should be continued/expanded.

    Startup Fun Culture with perfect Professionalism and Work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ as an intern

    Pros

    Its the perfect mix of a professional work culture and startup fun. You learn a lot, get mentored a lot, get challenging work but see people full of energy around you playing games, shouting, laughing, throwing jokes, making fun - that is you never get bored.
    There will never be a lack of energy and fun
    There will never be a lack of learning and quality work

    Cons

    Don't go by the negative reviews. I had really low expectations from the company after reading them but am so glad now that I joined it

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technology 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.

    Cons

    You'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.
