    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (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.

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

    Pros

    The advantages to work with capital iq is you are free to learn all aspects of financial statements practically how a data can be processed by the people manually which was i think the best part of the company and i got the the best working staff there all employees whether they are senior or manager level very cooperative and supportive now coming to the compensation they were giving a satisfactory remuneration to all employees as per there work load and talent.

    Cons

    The only con which i felt was working in shifts specialty night shifts was hard to awake all night and processing difficult data it provokes errors also .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not think a year is enough to provide any advice or suggestion to any big organisation .

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

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

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