    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time for 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 for more than a 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 .

    Pros

    Great co-workers and a fun working environment. Products are ones that clients need and see the value in. 401k match is good.

    Cons

    Are not a sales organization and therefore treat sales people like nuisances. Managers have a tendency to manage to their superiors instead of in support of those reporting to them.
