    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind. Hard work, customer satisfaction and ethics are all lost on this company. They are based out of India and are costing us all jobs!

    Cons

    Capital IQ is on the edge of failure. They have a lack of focus on the customer and are only concerned about corporate profit which are down 40% from 2009. The product offering and data quality are well below industry standards and only matched by free internet products.

    Advice to Management

    With the recent reorganization you know the writings on the wall. McGraw-Hill will spin you off and sell Capital IQ. Unfortunately they will never be able to recover the inflated price they paid for you. Cents on the dollar!

    casual dress code, work hour flexibility, not much face time, friendly people, no one really cares what you're working on

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    should hire more outside talent as management here has a very narrow view of the company and the world outside

    Pros

    Best co-workers that one could ask for, work/life balance is more like life/work, little to no accountability for your actions.

    Cons

    The culture at CIQ encourages you to perform at a mediocre level. There are very smart people here who work their tails off, and it isn't rewarded in the slightest. Tenure seems to be the biggest factor when it comes to titles, compensation, respect, etc. Don't expect a shred of meritocracy at this company, and forget being adequately compensated for your job, this place has gone from being a standout firm to an absolute clown show in barely two years.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and realize that unless you start respecting (and paying) your top talent, its all going to leave the building. You think losing 2-3 key people a week would send a signal.

    I have been working at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Prior to Sr. Management's misguided "house cleaning":
    *Hard work was acknowledged and rewarded
    *Work/life balance was actually taken seriously
    *Emphasis was placed on innovation and creativity

    Cons

    Now that almost EVERYONE from Technology (Development + Infrastructure) has quit since May 2011, there is hardly any knowledge transfer and an embarrassing zero mentor-ship. Turnover has become too much of a problem and has sent this company into a downward spiral that even those who have stuck around secretly acknowledge is irrecoverable.

    CIQ used to be a place of innovation and has now turned into a bureaucracy of cronyism. Each individual has his own personal agenda and strife is rampant. Total lack of communication as well, which has actually led to two different groups developing the same application without collaboration and neither side was aware of the other.

    To make things worse, an initiative to re-organize the company without serious foresight into the complications of integration from an IT perspective has cause numerous frustrations and missed deadlines.

    There's no turning back at this point - they just let way too many smart people leave at the wrong times. The saddest part is that this company will never fail - there is too much money that can be poured in. However, it has become and will remain a mediocre/ industry player (NOT the leader it used to be).

    Advice to Management

    I cannot offer any. You've already destroyed what was once a great company. The fact that you do not even see what is wrong nor have done anything to address it is astounding. Just like King Midas, everything you've touched appears to be "turned to gold", when really, you've just permanently frozen everything. Yet all you see is gold and think you've done a wonderful job. Wake up and drink the coffee instead of the Kool-Aid. I hear they are still serving the Kool-Aid at TR.

    I feel sorry for you when the customers finally realize how much your choices and actions have stifled a great platform and they leave...

    I have been working at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - No pressure, Chill environment
    - Coworkers are nice

    Cons

    The company lacks vision or direction since the S&P take over. The CEO is arrogant and is not afraid to reduce salary across the board at the cost of driving every last talent away. Both of the guys who interviewed me quit within 6 month. People are leaving every week, it's truly sad. To cut cost, the company outsources a lot of development to india. The quality is greatly reduced. Then, as a bandaid fix, they hired Microsoft consultants at 500 dollars an hour, while handing out yearly raise less than the natural inflation rate!
    It feels like the upper management are clueless of what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. You guys are so terrible it's helpless!

    Great brand and generous benefits

    Cons

    The president and her management team are clueless. Nobody in their right mind would employ any of them. Totally incompetent but living the high life with no regard for the hard working employees. They all need to go in order to save the business. Have never come across such a bunch of buffoons running a billion dollar business in my entire life.

    Advice to Management

    House cleaning time for McGraw Hill. The sooner you get rid of these clowns the better.

    Pros

    Pay is good for what you're doing. Very laid back environment.

    Cons

    The company is on it's third executive committee in 12 months. Part of this included laying off good, hardworking people who had been there for years. On the west coast there is now a lack of management. People come to work drunk and high. Managers encourage this because they find it funny. Promotions are based on friendships, not merit. People consistently take naps in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the local management and start over. Encourage employees by showing that hard work is rewarded. Don't allow drug use in the office.
