before merger with SNL
Senior UX Designer (Former Employee) –  water street, New york, NYMarch 28, 2017
I really enjoyed the different groups I worked with over the years, really smart and dedicated people. A little too focused on engineering IMO and could use better UX experience products.
Pros
great people, collaborative
Cons
Engineering culture alone is not enough to stay competitive.

Great first job
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 15, 2016
First job right out of college. Learned a ton about the field and my future career. Not much room for advancement, but that is by design. Plus it is great experience and will help you pursue a job elsewhere where there is room for advancement.
Pros
Very lax, great work/life balance
Cons
Lack of exciting projects

Poor Leadership at C-Level executive level
Senior Software Engineer - Application Team Lead (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 13, 2015
High Turnover at C-level executives causes process churn. New policies and reorganizations caused a decrease in excellence of service across many technical support groups.

The employees make the best of poor situations and are rewarded poorly for their efforts. Many projects start and never go anywhere because of poor vision. Other projects are not shut down when they need to resulting in code bloat and white elephants.

CTO turnover causes churn as new technologies and methodologies are enacted to satisfy buzzword bingo players.

The location in NYC is nice, however, the organization tends to focus on the wrong things.
Pros
great location, good work-life balance
Cons
mediocre benefits, poor management

nice work/life balance
Senior Relationship Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 20, 2015
This company had a nice work/life balance, It has great benefits. However I find the intelligence of people who work there is very much lacking. Mid managers were very subpar quality.

good place to work
Director - Business Analysis (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 25, 2015
Good place with lots of very talented people who have a lot of industry experience and are experts in their areas. Unfortunately, not all groups within the firm are supportive of their employees advancing their careers by promotion or moving to other job roles within the firm. Over time this can lead to staleness in the work. Again this is only the case in some areas of the firm - overall, it is a great place to work.

Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 18, 2015
Good work-life balance (you will never bring work home), but don't expect anyone to really care about their projects. Things move very slowly. Projects take a very long time to complete.

Project Management Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 1, 2015
Company was going through a lot of changes but still great culture. Management is improving. CapIQ always finds a way for their employees to have fun and rewards employees for their hard work. Always a plus.

My typical day
Senior production artist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 18, 2015
Prior to this job, I was a Macintosh user. I learned the PC and all of its multiple drives. Also as the print world began to diminish and PDfs and HTML were the norm, we were trained on how to properly produce Dreamweaver files in the code, not the designer interface.
Pros
flexibility, on the job training
Cons
the raise process

Director (Current Employee) –  Asia PacificApril 14, 2015
Management is lean, and hands off. Co-workers are very warm and welcoming, but lacks financial market knowledge. Hardest part was to fit in a culture that lacks knowledge of the financial markets. Most enjoyable was the work life balance.
Pros
Work Life balance
Cons
lack of motivation and culture
