    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.

    Pros

    Lots of young and dynamic employees
    Pay is above industry average, especially for more senior positions
    Exposure to many types of clients (sell side, buy side, corporates, sovereign, etc)

    Cons

    Management gets paid according to new sales numbers. So they pay little attention to existing customers.

    Needs a lot of improvement in the Senior Management.

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

    Pros

    Decent compensation. A lot of knowledgeable individuals who are always willing to help but their numbers seems to be dwindling. You can gain a lot of financial knowledge from the people working here, but the work itself is too company-specific and gets monotonous soon. Opportunities to learn - few and far.

    Cons

    Though the job is not stressful, there are no true weekends. Senior management is of no help right now. The senior management is too stagnant the grass root workers are suffering because of no growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need leaders who more directly involved and connected to the employees. Too many communications are being relegated to people who are holding the tag of 'seniors' yet have no idea of how to handle people.
