    Pros

    Low expectations of delivering and no consequences for not delivering. Very relaxed atmosphere especially after the botched SNL Financial Acquisition. Tremendous amount of town halls that keep you well informed.

    Cons

    Random targeting of employees to fire and moving headcount to off shore for cost savings. Jr employees live in a state of fear

    Pros

    Compensation, Job Culture, Benefits, Profit & Share, 401K

    Cons

    Management, Job Work/Life Balance, Job Security, Advancement, Job Culture

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe what recruiters tell you about unlimited sick days and flex work hours as promised by recruiters no work/life balance be ready to work on weekends. Long work hours and unrealistic deadlines. Your benefits wont start till after a month if your lucky it took me almost 2 months to get everything setup and I was working in HR.

    "Immature management. Capital IQ needs to grow up"

    Pros

    Very good benefits package, courtesy of McGraw-Hill - employer's contribution to pension is very generous, healthcare, subsidised gym.
    Decent offices.

    Cons

    Management run the company like some Jonestown cult. Unless you drink the Kool Aid, it's impossible to progress.
    Favoured staff have jobs created for them for which they have no relevant experience or talent. The place is way-overstaffed.
    Despite overt friendly atmosphere, when you scratch the surface you'll find that Capital IQ is a very nasty company. Colleagues spy on each other & report back to management if co-workers have taken too long lunch breaks (I'm not exagerating here).
    Morale is extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    McGraw-Hill Financial needs to step in & take control & inject some maturity into this place. Hopefully Peter Deboer can help Capital IQ grow up.

    Pros

    Capital IQ was a great experience for me. I learnt a lot and had the opportunity to be part of a fast growing organization within a larger enterprise. Capital IQ was and is well respected in the financial community and has good name recognition (although somewhat less known here than in the US where it was founded.)

    Cons

    Earlier this year, all of the senior managers left upon disagreements with the parent company about future direction. Previous turnover had been almost none in many years. Capital IQ used to be a coherent, complete organization and has been broken apart and included in a larger part of Standard and Poors. The passion for the business has gone and, whilst the new leadership at the Capital IQ level may have its heart in the right place, the same cannot be said for the next level up.

    Advice to Management

    Although some changes to align with overall direction are understandable, do not lose what made Capital IQ able to compete and grow so successfully for a long time against much larger players.

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

    Pros

    It's certainly quite easy to have a great work life balance. From a workload perspective, it's quite a low pressure environment and the pay is average.

    Cons

    People are leaving in droves leaving the future quite uncertain. Management has resorted to having some people escorted out by HR when they quit. This creates a bit of a a hostile environment and attitude towards management. Also it's confusing because people are leaving without any transition of their work and responsibilities. If you don't have a thick skin for corporate America, it may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    It's not too late to admit your mistakes and try to turn things around.
