    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".

    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.

    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

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

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    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

    Pros

    Capital IQ has an amazing Indian operation. Morale there remains pretty good. Do yourself a favor and sort the reviews by location and you will see that folks in India generally are happy and have good feelings about the business and even the CEO (who they don't know.)

    Cons

    Look at how people in NY feel. Most people disapprove of the CEO and wouldn't recommend the company to a friend. NY is where most of the sales, technology and product development is located. NY is also the same office as Lou the CEO and much of the senior managers. NY'ers have a much better sense of the level of incompetence, politics and lack of "realness" that the senior team has mastered. It is very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Read the reviews. React.
