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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ProsGood compensation, great learning opportunities, great people used to be working here, however have left the company in recent months.

ConsHighly bureaucratic, simple things cannot get done due to multiple hurdles, infrastructure operations outsourced to a terrible vendor, senior management is out of touch with recent technological advancements, lot of politics played by middle management employees due to job insecurity.

Advice to Senior Managementstreamline the senior management by paying closer attention to the actual work being done by the so-called "directors" and "senior directors".
