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

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Culture, office, work load, time in office (very flexible on when to come and when to leave). As long as you got your work done on time, people were cool with you.

    Cons

    Mgmt switched over in early 2012 leading to huge turnover. New leaders were stuffy and resistant to feedback.

    Pros

    Good place to start your career.
    Good amount of young professionals.

    Cons

    Hard to progress in the company.
    The department I was in had a lot of internal conflicts. Management did little to nothing to resolve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company to create a career paths for people which can eliminate bias and conflicts.

    Pros

    Good compensation, great learning opportunities, great people used to be working here, however have left the company in recent months.

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic, simple things cannot get done due to multiple hurdles, infrastructure operations outsourced to a terrible vendor, senior management is out of touch with recent technological advancements, lot of politics played by middle management employees due to job insecurity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    streamline the senior management by paying closer attention to the actual work being done by the so-called "directors" and "senior directors".

    Pros

    Good company with a few good people remaining. Still have some strong products and solutions but not very innovative anymore. Safe place to work and company isnt going anywhere anytime soon (up or down)

    Cons

    Senior leadership isnt very strong and product development is lacking. Growth is flatlining.

  8. Start-up that has become more corporate to compete with other big data providers

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities, forward-thinking company, generally a very dynamic atmosphere where people who believe in the brand often stay for many years

    Cons

    The transition to become fully integrated into its parent company, S&P, was not received well by a majority of employees, causing many key leaders and talented employees to leave

  9. The company had a good culture but the work wasn't very exciting.

    A mixed bag, some brilliant people in an environment that is struggling to find direction after internal re-org

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

    Pros

    There is a lot to learn here, the projects are challenging, and there are some really great people. Working in the heart of downtown Manhattan is pretty cool too.

    Cons

    There was a re-org in 2011 and since then a lot of top talent has left the company. This left a knowledge vacuum that the company has been struggling to fill. So far, the upper management has done a horrible job handling this. They are very disconnected and uninspiring. They haven't focused on hiring new, smart people. They've ignored how bad the new outsourced MIS solution is. Basically, the current environment is one where its very hard to get work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's been 2 years since the re-org. Stop ignoring the problems and writing them off as growing pains. Instead, solicit feedback from all tiers of employees and take meaningful action to correct the issues.
