    Pros

    Few projects are good. Not all !
    We might not fall into those projects.

    Cons

    No Personal Growth
    Lots of Chowdary and non Chowdary politics in HYD center. They wont shows it but it runs behind !
    Good people left the company and are also leaving the company - high attrition rate
    Poor management
    Performance Rating is not based on actual performance. Again lots of politics here !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make things a bit transparent. Learn to appreciate people on their work.
    "Justice delayed is justice denied"
    The driving force for someone to work harder and achieve higher goals is appreciation of work

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time

    Pros

    There was a wonderful team at the company until 2011. At that point, the senior management left and was replaced with a corporate functionary who had failed in a similar position at Thomson and Bloomberg. There are still some great people left, however, and he was just removed from his job. The product is still a great one.

    Cons

    It has become a much less entrepreneurial place and a lot more CYA activity.

    Pros

    If you get a chance to be a part of the team who work on the real-time data, the experience is very good. On-shore teams are always helpful.

    Cons

    Growth is a major concern even if you are a top performer.

    I worked at S&P Capital IQ full-time

    Pros

    The company has a pension plan with a decent match. Health benefits are great, and the compensation is good.

    Cons

    If you're a young ambitious person, I would really advise against joining. Be prepared to just coast along doing the same things, meaning bare minimum. It is very clear that the culture in this company rewards seniority over competency despite what they claim.
