    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
