    Former Employee - Summer Software Developer Intern

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.

    Pros

    Great work hours that offers really good work/life balance. Flexibility and independence during business trips and managing client accounts.

    Cons

    The corporate structure is quickly changing and the company is stratifying layers of hierarchies, it's becoming more and more "corporate".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more time to talk to employees and really listen to feedback.

    Pros

    Management cultivates a relaxed, comfortable environment and an strong team mentality is the result. Employees are always treated with respect.

    Cons

    Compensation at the firm is decent, but tends not to be in the same league as that of Capital IQ's clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience with management at Capital IQ has been generally positive over the past few years. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    You can work here at easy pace. Good Male-Female Ratio. Healthy Work Environment. It is a safe place to work for long years without many worries.

    Cons

    No growth options due to absence of good quality work. Promotions are very difficult (almost negligible) after a certain level.

    Redundant Work in most cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide better growth options to employees. The current policy is not healthy for employees. It will boost the morale of the people.
