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

Pros

Good work/life balance.
Pays well enough.

Cons

Lou Eccleston, CEO, and Bob Coppola, CTO, in particular, are clueless to what really is going on within the company, and proven by their actions (or lack thereof), have no idea how to run a technology company.
Resources are spread too thin and product development has essentially ceased to exist.
Political nature of a large and old company makes it extremely inefficient to do almost anything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring current or former Thomson employees. That company is a mess and we will just end up their same dismal position if we do not change our ways

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Company has a ton of assets. They just need to put them together, and get organized to take things to the next level.

    Cons

    The game of fluffing the story up to make it sound better than it is goes up the chain so there is no focus on real problems. Too much spin. There also seems to be an affinity for hiring people that are under-achieving ivy league kids. Top of the pack get real jobs, and this company is clearly meant to succeed in a blue collar financial services way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house if someone is doing a poor job. Entitlement, and seniority should be cut off at inception.
