    Pros

    If you take your opportunities you can go a long way. This is an employer that wants to retain, develop and reward it's top talent. Sit back and don't be surprised if you're in the back seat. I've seen the best rise very quickly.
    The balance of power is shifting. Europe is rising.

    Cons

    Like many large corporations, still slow to respond to opportunities. Not enough market hires who have sat in our client's shoes. Current uncertainty is on its way to resuloution but we're losing ground.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a voice. Don't let the consultants dictate everything; they have less vested interest in the long term success than your people. There are some excellent employees in your ranks who know the business better than external parties/hires; identify them and make sure you get their input. Keep decentralising from the U.S. but improve global collaboration, not just at an executive level. Make sure we make up ground before we lose what is left of our competitive advantage. And finally, if you want engaged employees, give them shares. It is that simple.

    Pros

    The company is ambitious and at the same time always supporting its employees without being aggressive. The atmosphere in the office is great, departments communicate well and there are no boundaries between teams nor people. The company treats you as a grown-up and knows that little supervision combined with excellent training works best for most people who want to excel at their jobs.

    Cons

    The management in the US sometimes seems to be out of touch with what is happening on the ground in London/Europe.

  3. Great people, environment to work and open to new opportunities

    Pros

    In S&P Capital IQ you will find great people working in a great and flexible environment. In general, you will feel secure without unpleasant surprises! At the same time you will be given the opportunities to stand out.

    Cons

    Bonuses are lower than banking environments while promotions are generally subject to years of experience instead of performance and skills.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that the management should pay more attention to the most talented employees and reward them because there are a lot of talented people who are looking for new opportunities just because of modest recognition.

    Pros

    Awesome location, good benefit, relax environment, a lot of social activities, nice employees, don't need to dress up in Wall Street,

    Cons

    small office, not to much option for lunch, but you know it's Wall Street in Manhanton in New York City, every inch worth a feet, so it's fine.

    Advice to Management

    May be need to consider how to keep an eye on each project, at least for interns it doesn't feels like everyone is getting enough attention for their grow.

  10. Satisfying for the most part.

    Pros

    Management does value tech and realizes they will build the future of the company. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Management seems indecisive on direction. New direction has been promised for about 7 months now and nothing has come. The new CEO seemed promising but nothing has happened yet. Patience goes only so far.
