A sweet option for part-timers/flexible proofreader types

Transcription Proofreader (Current Employee)

I have been working at S&P Capital IQ as a contractor for more than a year

ProsDecent pay, (sometimes) interesting content, not too taxing.

I work as a proofreader for the transcription department. I listen to the audio of a conference call or presentation and check the accuracy of a transcription. Pretty straightforward, easy work, and most of the calls are pretty interesting. The work is cyclical, tied to quarterly earnings reports of publicly-traded companies, so it's not full time (more like 26-32-ish weeks out of the year), but when there's work, there's plenty of work. Pay is decent but it would be hard to have this be a single job. That's not their fault though, they're very upfront about the amount of work, and most of their people do this as a second/side job so they're usually pretty understanding so long as you stick to what you promise.

ConsNot a full-time job but can eat up too much time when it's busy.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe coaching opportunities were a good idea and should be continued/expanded.

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
