Great people, environment to work and open to new opportunities

Risk Specialist (Current Employee)
London, England

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than a year

ProsIn 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementI 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great working environment

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ as an intern for less than a year

ProsExcellent environment, salaries are normal (but less than in Investment Banking), mostly quantitative tasks, difficult to hire in a permanent position but rarely proceed to dismissal after that stage.

ConsSalaries around industry average, difficult to get approval for promotion (for an Intern), pension schemes and Insurance coverage less than in Investment Banking.

Nice Place to work with Slow Pace of Growth

Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 8 years

ProsYou can work here at easy pace. Good Male-Female Ratio. Healthy Work Environment. It is a safe place to work for long years without many worries.

ConsNo growth options due to absence of good quality work. Promotions are very difficult (almost negligible) after a certain level.

Redundant Work in most cases.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease provide better growth options to employees. The current policy is not healthy for employees. It will boost the morale of the people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
