    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than an year)

    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

    The Work environment is terrific. It is one of the best payers in its category and lives up to its name in it.
    The office culture is very professional and the company takes good care of its employees.

    Cons

    The learning curve is not that great. It tends to slack down after time. This limitation specially applies for a manual qa as majority of the work is black box with limited automation exposure.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee-centric - willingness to invest in the person for the benefit of the business. Solid leadership with several difference makers. Probably the right work/life balance. Excellent IP with several unique and proprietary data sets. New management from the outside looks promising.

    Cons

    Less intense than past experiences. Firm is likely about to see significant organizational change that often results in irrational behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Execute the structural changes you know the business needs. Everything is in place to do that and while change is hard, opportunities like this don't occur often - seize the day!!
