    Only complete clowns or bs artists get promoted and you need to completely revamp the company

    Pros

    Great work life balance, really nice perks such as Pool and Ping Pong. Trying to be innovative, and you have flexibility to try out new ideas as long as they are not too risky.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay well, and people are not ambitious. Most everyone is rather risk averse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example

    Gone downhill by trying to be "cool"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at S&P Capital IQ full-time

    Pros

    The culture is good - management has been trying to improve morale through events, benefits, and fancy new fad-office design - PS4s and X-Box Ones, treadmill and standing desks, etc.

    Cons

    The technology is dated and backwards, and strives towards modernizing/embracing newer, more productive patterns and libraries have been dragged down by management that either doesn't get it or actively stops innovation. It's gotten too big to be what it once was - a focused team that valued talent, brains, and innovation.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
