    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.

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    Upper 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!
