    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities. Pay is ok, Friendly people and as it is part of the same group that also has S&P Ratings, S&P Indices and Platts there is the opportunity to work and network with some very smart individuals.

    Cons

    Terrible HR function, no career progression and other than learning about products there is limited opportunities for personal growth. Company value is to 'speak the truth' but doesn't seem to want to hear any dissenting information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The constant change is not just exhausting which would in itself be easy to cope with, it's just that the change is so confusing. All decisions are new york centric and give only career opportunities to US employees.

    It might be a place where you can find a sense of belonging. The timing/location is important

    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.

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