    Pros

    Good work life balance and friendly environment

    Cons

    No matter how great you do. Your bonus and your hike is decided already and the freshers are penalized the most

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You take the brightest minds and do not provide them a good career path.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, exposure to a variety of investment vehicles and investment professionals

    Cons

    Management is terrible, unorganized, unaccountable, unprofessional, not present, untrustworthy, and dishonest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Multiple scenarios where regional managers were dishonest and did not keep their word, even when communication was documented via email. Choose your leaders more thoroughly.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovative company if you're in sales, marketing or product, good products, good salary, nice location in NYC

    Cons

    If you work in sales or in product the jobs are probably amazing. If you are behind the scenes working in tech or operations its a nightmare. So much bureaucracy so little time. The environment is fast paced, but the tech teams can't keep up. Management is old school S&P management so don't let the CIQ name fool you. Most of the good management left when they were forced to come together. It used to be a great place to work, now its terrible, with poor management and you have to basically ask to go to the bathroom. Too many micromanagers and managers who don't understand how to manage. Most managers are extremely passive aggressive and old school. If you are looking for a young innovative tech team to work on, this isn't it. If you are in product it will be an innovative team but your stuff won't be developed correctly or on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off, let people do their jobs, technology management needs the big ole heave ho. Bring in young, smart people, instead of old school boys club cronies.

    Gone downhill by trying to be "cool"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time

    Pros

    The culture is good - management has been trying to improve morale through events, benefits, and fancy new fad-office design - PS4s and X-Box Ones, treadmill and standing desks, etc.

    Cons

    The technology is dated and backwards, and strives towards modernizing/embracing newer, more productive patterns and libraries have been dragged down by management that either doesn't get it or actively stops innovation. It's gotten too big to be what it once was - a focused team that valued talent, brains, and innovation.

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Manageable pressure, friendly people and lot of opportunity to meet new people

    Cons

    Bonuses and hikes are not good. Even though you have put a lot of effort, it is usually predetermined and there is not enough transparency yet. Although they claim to have a lot of transparency but there isn't much. There has been a lot of cost cutting going around and therefore the company isn't what it use to be. I feel prior to 2012, there it was a really good time to work but things are not going great for now.

    Pros

    Established company with solid technology and huge data sets.

    Cons

    Huge loss of technical knowledge and know how. Could only imagine what would happen if something happened and no one knew how to fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees to retain them longer in order to get well trained and knowledgeable people.
