    Pros

    The team you work with becomes like family. Depending on the department and manager, they can be extremely flexible with you in terms of working from home. There are also some great travel opportunities, depending on your position.

    Cons

    Too many changes. The company is confused with who they are and who they want to be. Nothing fulfilling about your everyday work. There are no straight duties for your job description, they are always changing while you take on more responsibility and your salary remains close to the same .

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to really look at the bigger picture, they are so focused on the client that they ignore the employees that gather and retain the clients. There is also a lot of decisions made without consulting the people those decisions affect. Advice would be to listen to your employees, they can also have great ideas!

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (More than 3 years)

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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

    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
