    Pros

    eveything good work more have fun the place is beautiful..the good environment Do keep in mind that the company reviews on all these sites are posted by individuals, including possibly disgruntled employees. So, use them as a tool to help gather more information about a company, but don't count on them as 100% accurate, because every employee's experience is different.

    If you aren't going into the sales path it might be difficult to move up quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing compensation for teams that over perform.

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance is decent. Growing so likely some opportunity in niches if you can find it.

    Cons

    Still trying to figure out direction, which leads to some discontinuity.
    Trying to change culture there as many of the employees are lifers that are stuck doing business a certain way as opposed to determining best course for future of company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to take some risks to grow the company. Otherwise, it guarantees mediocrity and inhibits growth.

    Pros

    Work culture, timings, cab Facility

    Cons

    Work becomes tedious and after 6-7 months in the organisation you stop using your brain. After a point its all mechanical work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop expecting your juniors or sub-ordinates to pamper you and do chamchagiri. Give promotion and bonus on the basis of merits.
