Nice Place to work with Slow Pace of Growth

Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 8 years

ProsYou can work here at easy pace. Good Male-Female Ratio. Healthy Work Environment. It is a safe place to work for long years without many worries.

ConsNo growth options due to absence of good quality work. Promotions are very difficult (almost negligible) after a certain level.

Redundant Work in most cases.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease provide better growth options to employees. The current policy is not healthy for employees. It will boost the morale of the people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

OK if you don't plan on growing your skills

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

Pros- work-life balance
- compensation
- work environment
- casual dress-code
- nice and friendly people
- good reputation, big company name

This is a good place if you are waiting for retirement

Cons- Job can be repetitive, boring
- Lack of training available
- Lack of career path visibility
- Lack of process/structure in development, release management, testing, QA
- Culture is too relax and laid back
- Nobody seems to care about deadlines
- Lack of documentation

There is no process whatsoever, people are nice but they have no urgency of getting things done. Deadlines are missed constantly and the software is extremely flawed, full of bugs and the testing is a joke.

I would not recommend if someone wants a fast-paced dynamic career.

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

Great job right out of college, not much beyond that

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ

ProsThe team you work with becomes like family. Depending on the department and manager, they can be extremely flexible with you in terms of working from home. There are also some great travel opportunities, depending on your position.

ConsToo many changes. The company is confused with who they are and who they want to be. Nothing fulfilling about your everyday work. There are no straight duties for your job description, they are always changing while you take on more responsibility and your salary remains close to the same .

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to really look at the bigger picture, they are so focused on the client that they ignore the employees that gather and retain the clients. There is also a lot of decisions made without consulting the people those decisions affect. Advice would be to listen to your employees, they can also have great ideas!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
