    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

    People are pleasant to work with.
    Cool new floor; looks like Google.
    Salary and benefits are really good.

    Cons

    QA department is run by strict women.
    Tasks can be repetitive and boring.
    Your job is never guaranteed; they do not give you a 2 week notice.
    Work on some weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a team/managers that have plans instead of wasting time.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, really nice perks such as Pool and Ping Pong. Trying to be innovative, and you have flexibility to try out new ideas as long as they are not too risky.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay well, and people are not ambitious. Most everyone is rather risk averse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The most casual dress code ever. Shorts and flip-flops in the summer. Jeans and sneakers in the winter. The hours tend to be 9-5 and bonus structure isn't all that bad compared to other industries.

    Cons

    Poor selection of management as well as very little room for growth. People are promoted into management positions based on how they performed in their previous role rather than looking at the persons and determining if they have the skills necessary to manage properly. In addition there is poor communication regarding the direction the company is heading.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with the direction of the company and start hiring managers based on their management capabilities, not their operational capabilities.
