    Pros

    The environment is great, specially because most of your co-workers are very young. There are plenty of training sessions, so you always keep learning.

    Cons

    Very flat structure. There is no much hierarchy within the company except by 6 or 7 levels.
    Lack of an interesting career path and not much opportunities as the managerial positions never rotate.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and fun colleagues. The work is not necessarily rewarding, but can be interesting. A good place to start off and learn the finance industry. Pay is competitive but not excessive. Top workers are rewarded.

    Cons

    Top executives are only focused on revenue growth and shareholder return, not employees. This creates a culture where there is a lot of uncertainty about what top management will do in the short or medium term.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with the company, less chasing revenue growth.

    Pros

    Very talented workforce working shoulder to shoulder to service the most talented clientele. Also a very collegial environment and very humane people.

    Cons

    It is almost inevitable to suffer from the growing pains of getting larger by acquiring other firms. The mixture of company cultures is always a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to maintain employee engagement! This time try to make it clearer for the employee to understand the value and purpose of what MSCI does.
