A mixed bag, some brilliant people in an environment that is struggling to find direction after internal re-org

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere is a lot to learn here, the projects are challenging, and there are some really great people. Working in the heart of downtown Manhattan is pretty cool too.

ConsThere was a re-org in 2011 and since then a lot of top talent has left the company. This left a knowledge vacuum that the company has been struggling to fill. So far, the upper management has done a horrible job handling this. They are very disconnected and uninspiring. They haven't focused on hiring new, smart people. They've ignored how bad the new outsourced MIS solution is. Basically, the current environment is one where its very hard to get work done.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's been 2 years since the re-org. Stop ignoring the problems and writing them off as growing pains. Instead, solicit feedback from all tiers of employees and take meaningful action to correct the issues.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
