    Pros

    Great entry-level positions because salary is above-industry rate. Very dynamic working environment and flexibility in work schedules.

    Very limited mobility and opportunity for career growth. Once an employee reaches a certain level, there is no way to further improve than to seek employment elsewhere. Problematic software and application.

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

    Pros

    Competitive packages comparatively. Long-term job security as long as met expectations.

    Cons

    Not an MNC or Corporate environment inside. Top and middle managers untrained in people management. communication skills, administration and soft skills. Lot of traditional methods followed. Not up-to-date with technology in non-business operations. Overly Bossy and unprofessional nature of middle management. Comparatively poor infrastructure and office administration. Uncleanliness of cafeteria utensils. Bad maintenance of washrooms.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency to associates is essential. Over-secrecy of small things hurts employees motivation. Nothing wrong in openly and personally communicating with associates on a daily basis. Can be informal when not talking business. Should understand that associates deserves equal respect as middle and top managers. Globally-accepted management and leadership principles should be inculcated. Team mangers need not be overly bossy.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    If you want somewhere with good work life balance this is a good place to work. Most people arrive after 9am and leave before 5pm.

    Cons

    Too much red tape, too much process and management are more interested in internal politics over employee problems. Rarely does concern or comments get escalated upward, managers want to be yes men upwards


  11. Great first job out of school with the ability to learn quickly

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - Established player in the financial data analytics space - Coming out of school, you will learn a lot about running a data company very quickly - If you don't know how something works, just ask and someone will teach you - Opportunity to own/shape a small piece of a large product offering

    Cons

    - Good strategy to align business units into a unified offering but execution was messy with poor communication and little accountability

    Advice to Management

    As it can be complex to merge various products and data sets, make sure you have the right structure and approach in place, and make sure that it's communicated early and often.
