    I worked at S&P Global Market Intelligence full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great co-workers and a fun working environment. Products are ones that clients need and see the value in. 401k match is good.

    Cons

    Are not a sales organization and therefore treat sales people like nuisances. Managers have a tendency to manage to their superiors instead of in support of those reporting to them.

    Pros

    Capital IQ has very lax dress codes. On a hot summer day, it's common to see employees in sandals and shorts. Capital IQ, from time to time, has these 'Townhall' meetings on Fridays (typically) where employees, management, owners of the company get together for beers. These 'townhall' meetings usually coincide with important milestones of the company such as a big software release or the end of a raving month for sales. Management is generally OK with people taking their vacation at any time as long as you let them know ahead of time (a month or so, the earlier the better).

    Cons

    Employees, save managers and senior employees, don't get the respect they deserve. You can and will get funny looks. Occasionally, one may even be made a laughing stock (literally). The lack of professionalism in this respect is rather shocking. Ongoing popularity contests are part and parcel of the work environment here. In order for employees to gain recognition, they *will* have to engage in small talk involving baseball and the like, as well as going out to bars with senior managers. As a result, employees who do not fit in culturally are ostracized, and often have to endure subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) hostility in a less-than-diverse work environment. Senior employees and management are very self-centered in their approach to problems and ways of doing things. They are generally unaware of this. Alternative ideas or suggestions are often shot down almost purely due to this factor. Management has poor (over-aggressive) estimates for project management. Quality-assurance teams are completely out-sourced. Communication barriers and time zone differences can lead to frustrating and inefficient debugging cycles. CIQ doesn't have formal employee training. Their philosophy is similar to how eagles teach their younglings how to fly - survival of the fittest. You are expected to learn and adapt to many things in a short amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the level of professionalism amongst lower level employees. Promote diversity within the company. Provide more training for new employees.
