    Pros

    None, over the past 1 1/2 years

    Cons

    Paranoid culture, cost cutting with ill reward, talented employees leaving, lack of product innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are likely in the wrong business and are set up for failure. CEO is a glorified talk-show host.

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

    Pros

    - No pressure, Chill environment
    - Coworkers are nice

    Cons

    The company lacks vision or direction since the S&P take over. The CEO is arrogant and is not afraid to reduce salary across the board at the cost of driving every last talent away. Both of the guys who interviewed me quit within 6 month. People are leaving every week, it's truly sad. To cut cost, the company outsources a lot of development to india. The quality is greatly reduced. Then, as a bandaid fix, they hired Microsoft consultants at 500 dollars an hour, while handing out yearly raise less than the natural inflation rate!
    It feels like the upper management are clueless of what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. You guys are so terrible it's helpless!
