    Friendly on the face of it but not so nice if you get on the wrong side

    Pros

    They are willing to promote people quickly, although this generally means that positions needing experience and qualifications are held by unqualified staff.

    Cons

    They love to talk about how scrappy they are, but the complete opposite is the truth - there's no energy or buzz in the office, it's like working in a retirement home which is bizarre considering most employees are in their twenties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions, stop talking all the time and doing nothing.

    Immature management. Capital IQ needs to grow up

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

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