    Pros

    Work culture, timings, cab Facility

    Cons

    Work becomes tedious and after 6-7 months in the organisation you stop using your brain. After a point its all mechanical work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop expecting your juniors or sub-ordinates to pamper you and do chamchagiri. Give promotion and bonus on the basis of merits.

    Current Employee - Technology Quality Analyst in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

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

    Pros

    - One of the best salary packages in India for a QA at any level
    - If you spend a good 2-3 years, your opinion about things matters and this feels very satisfying
    - Managers are very approachable and there is no attitude when it comes to helping the colleagues
    - Your self performance is valued a great deal (many people might not agree to this but its true, that if you are doing better than your peers then you are trusted with more responsibilities)
    - The domain knowledge is very good
    - Lateral movement across QA teams (this was pretty less earlier but is now beginning to increase)
    - X-Box is there :)

    Cons

    - People at the senior level (below the team lead) tend to micro manage things which is many times ignored by leads. This is actually the primary reason for new hires to think of an unfriendly and hostile environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - "Work from Home" is very very strict in gurgaon. Its almost not allowed. This should be a bit more flexible

    - On-shore visits should be increased for QA and should be uniform accross teams (right now there are very few teams that get this opportunity)

    - More opportunities for QA to move to another role (such as BA or Dev)

    Former Employee - Sales in Chicago, IL (US)

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, Brand Recognition, and many good people

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with their people, especially in the Sales arena. Processes such as Salesforce, have been implemented so poorly that using them actually make the sales, account management, order fulfillment, and billing effort more difficult and far less efficient. The company is also very poor at developing career paths for their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a better effort in recognizing that many of your long-standing employees actually ARE valuable, possess needed experience, clearly demonstrate loyalty, and really do add to the long term success of the company.
