great work-life balance, but horribly terrible manager and significantly under paid

Client Development Associate (Current Employee)
Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 3 years

Prosgreat team mates, great culture, great working environment

Consremarkably terrible manager to cope with. Heavily under paid. Don't think it would be a great place to work if your manager is trying to build up her reputation and look good with your sacrifice. working with a manager who doesn't give a sh*t about you is miserable.

Advice to Senior Managementfind someone who would really care for her subordinates and make them feel it's safe and worth putting 100% efforts working in your company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Was a great place to work before management changed

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than a year

ProsCulture, office, work load, time in office (very flexible on when to come and when to leave). As long as you got your work done on time, people were cool with you.

ConsMgmt switched over in early 2012 leading to huge turnover. New leaders were stuffy and resistant to feedback.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Senior software engineer @ Capital IQ Hyderabad: This can be a good first job

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe work culture is more like a young startup. One has the independence to propose his solutions and implement them after taking feedback. Such Entrepreneurial traits are strongly valued and encouraged.

ConsWithin 1-2 years, one will get a hang of the nature of work and it becomes easy to solve. After 1-2 years, it is difficult to get any challenging work.

Advice to Senior ManagementHands on managers who can jump into work will offer much help to employees compared to those who only know projects at theoretical level. I happened to work with a mix of both and the former ones offered more help in shaping me.

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

Monotonous and Stagnant!

Senior Research Associate (Former Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere are good chances to grow in the company up to 2-3 levels, from entry level to a Senior level.
The management was accommodating.
Good work life balance.
Target based role, every thing will be fine as long as you are able to achieve your monthly targets... quantitatively and qualitatively ..

ConsPost the Senior Associate or Analyst level, it is very very tough to get promoted or to move out from this company to any other.

It would take about 3-6 years till you can get another promotion.

The experience from this place is pretty much useless, it is close to impossible to move to another company, unless you have some additional certifications (such as CA, CFA, etc).

There is a certain amount of preference for male employees, when it comes to special projects.

You need to be in the good books of the management to get promotions and leaves accepted, else things could become awful!

Constant change in policies.

Very conservative environment!

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease assign projects to all members of the team. Do not selectively assign it to a special group of people.
There should be more motivational factors
