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

    Pros

    Decent compensation. A lot of knowledgeable individuals who are always willing to help but their numbers seems to be dwindling. You can gain a lot of financial knowledge from the people working here, but the work itself is too company-specific and gets monotonous soon. Opportunities to learn - few and far.

    Cons

    Though the job is not stressful, there are no true weekends. Senior management is of no help right now. The senior management is too stagnant the grass root workers are suffering because of no growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need leaders who more directly involved and connected to the employees. Too many communications are being relegated to people who are holding the tag of 'seniors' yet have no idea of how to handle people.

  5. It might be a place where you can find a sense of belonging. The timing/location is important

    Pros

    Strong professional leadership that is moving the company in a stronger more focused direction. The work-life balance is very reasonable and the benefits program is on the generous side.

    Cons

    Company remains in a state of flux with a variety of key strategic directions yet to be fully articulated. Current leadership appears strong - but the uncertainty creates some pause that needs to be eliminated quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace the culture of old (CIQ). Eliminate much of the P&C control that stalls and delays innovation and be more open to using partners to maximize the value of the data and to allow 3rd parties to innovate with us.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, exposure to a variety of investment vehicles and investment professionals

    Cons

    Management is terrible, unorganized, unaccountable, unprofessional, not present, untrustworthy, and dishonest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Multiple scenarios where regional managers were dishonest and did not keep their word, even when communication was documented via email. Choose your leaders more thoroughly.

    Pros

    The company pays really well for the kind of job it offers. If you land up in a good team you will be paid only to come to office.

    Cons

    The work is very boring. You will not learn a lot.
    Stay here for some time and then start looking for something that helps you grow as a professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many granularities. Employees should have a wider scope of work.
