    MSCI pros and cons

    Vice President (Current Employee)

    ProsYou can learn a lot in MSCI. The diversity of the workshop is also good. You work with people from different countries and cultures in MSCI.

    ConsThe salary cannot compare with that in i bank.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more resources on training.
    Sales is important. However the knowledge and skill of the employees keeps the company's leadership in the industry.

    Review of MSCIBarra

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMSCI is a challenging place to work at and is growing. It is poised to become a world leader in risk management products.

    ConsThe company is getting larger and larger and it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. As it grows there is more red tape.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe must always keep our customers in mind when expanding and make sure we create products that are tailored to our customers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Employee == commodity ?? Does MSCI Barra have any intention to keep top performer ??

    (Current Employee)
    Hong Kong (Hong Kong)

    ProsSenior management is keen on cost cutting. If you are working in emerging markets, e.g. india, china. The center you are working at still have opportunity to grow. Your promotion ladder is still there.

    In general, Work/Life balance is good. However, it also depends on which team you join, and which leader you report to.

    ConsSenior management is keen on cost cutting. You should not expect to get good bonus.

    The merging with Risk Metrics introduces many uncertainties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo you really want to keep good ppl ?

    Great place to build your initial financial services career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat work life balance. You can quickly get new responsibilities since teams are small and talent is appreciated.

    ConsMicromanagement can be overbearing at times. There is a lot of emphasis on internal meetings which can take up a lot of time and leave little time for anything else.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement can try not micromanaging their teams and let each individual think and act as owners.
