    Pros

    The company has some very good products and has made some good acquisition in the past that will help existing solutions develop further. The Capital IQ brand is still held in high regard with clients.

    Cons

    The management are all legacy S&P and so they bring with them the culture that was always the problem with that company - lack of vision, lack of care for staff, lack of ambition, lack of humanity., and worst of all they will back-stab clients at the drop of a hat. If you like kissing your superiors back-side then this is the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop living in the 80's and wizen up. Your staff are your most valuable asset so use them wisely. And stop nickel and dimming your clients and stabbing them in the back at every contract renewal/discussion - that's what's destroying your reputation in the market.

    Pros

    relaxed atmosphere, nobody seems to work very hard
    good people

    Cons

    the place lacks energy.
    the takeover by S&P has been unsettling. 2 very different cultures, products and sales approach coming together will always be challenging, but the S&P management does not make the best judgement on what should be done.
    After 9 months, people still did not get their comp plan
    too much politics in the office

    Advice to Management

    give people their comp plan sooner
    work on improving your performance on each product line rather than try to run the business and integrate all the companies and products all at once.

    Pros

    A very friendly work atmosphere

    Cons

    Training sounds good but is in fact very poor. It all aims at becoming a robot. Absolutely no room for personal ability.

    Advice to Management

    Trust individual talent and personality.

    Pros

    They are willing to promote people quickly, although this generally means that positions needing experience and qualifications are held by unqualified staff.

    Cons

    They love to talk about how scrappy they are, but the complete opposite is the truth - there's no energy or buzz in the office, it's like working in a retirement home which is bizarre considering most employees are in their twenties.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions, stop talking all the time and doing nothing.

    Pros

    Company was full of young people to socialize with - overall college-like atmosphere with little or no oversight from management.

    Cons

    Little to no oversight or direction from anyone due to constant turnover in management. One new senior level manager would come in and within 2 weeks would hire 10 of his friends from a former employer.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your talent. At one time this company was run by executives who worked their way through the ranks and had a personal interest in the long term success of the company, now you are lucky if someone stays for a full year!

    Pros

    Ping pong table, pool table, video games. Work hrs are pretty manageable

    Cons

    Dead end job, no vision in place, way too much miscommunication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and look at the big picture, instead of just profits, then maybe people will stay longer than 1-2 yrs at the company
