Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ

Prosvery flexible working hours, nice colleagues and ability to deal with many financial instruments across different asset classes

ConsThe job doesn't follow the current financial market, so it is quite hard to get any investment knowledge. The opportunities for promotion are also very limited.

Nice Place to work with Slow Pace of Growth

Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

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

ProsYou 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.

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