Great people, environment to work and open to new opportunities

Risk Specialist (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than a year

ProsIn S&P Capital IQ you will find great people working in a great and flexible environment. In general, you will feel secure without unpleasant surprises! At the same time you will be given the opportunities to stand out.

ConsBonuses are lower than banking environments while promotions are generally subject to years of experience instead of performance and skills.

Advice to Senior ManagementI believe that the management should pay more attention to the most talented employees and reward them because there are a lot of talented people who are looking for new opportunities just because of modest recognition.
