    Immature management. Capital IQ needs to grow up

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsVery good benefits package, courtesy of McGraw-Hill - employer's contribution to pension is very generous, healthcare, subsidised gym.
    Decent offices.

    ConsManagement run the company like some Jonestown cult. Unless you drink the Kool Aid, it's impossible to progress.
    Favoured staff have jobs created for them for which they have no relevant experience or talent. The place is way-overstaffed.
    Despite overt friendly atmosphere, when you scratch the surface you'll find that Capital IQ is a very nasty company. Colleagues spy on each other & report back to management if co-workers have taken too long lunch breaks (I'm not exagerating here).
    Morale is extremely low.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMcGraw-Hill Financial needs to step in & take control & inject some maturity into this place. Hopefully Peter Deboer can help Capital IQ grow up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Proseveything good work more have fun the place is beautiful..the good environment Do keep in mind that the company reviews on all these sites are posted by individuals, including possibly disgruntled employees. So, use them as a tool to help gather more information about a company, but don't count on them as 100% accurate, because every employee's experience is different.

    Evolving business model, solid foundation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsWork-life balance is decent. Growing so likely some opportunity in niches if you can find it.

    ConsStill trying to figure out direction, which leads to some discontinuity.
    Trying to change culture there as many of the employees are lifers that are stuck doing business a certain way as opposed to determining best course for future of company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow employees to take some risks to grow the company. Otherwise, it guarantees mediocrity and inhibits growth.
