    I worked at FactSet (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Generally flexible, easygoing co-workers/management. Provided that one is not taking advantage, or causing an issue by doing so, one's manager is generally flexible and lenient about most things, provided one's performance is decent. * Pantry filled with free snacks and soft drinks.

    Cons

    * Huge inconsistency in how various teams and departments are run, so the overall quality of one's general work experience can be hugely dependent on the luck of the draw when one is assigned to a team (such as when initially applying and being hired). * Engineers are generally kept very much separated and isolated from other departments, especially the sales side, so required interactions (to respond to client issues and the like) can sometimes be somewhat tense and unpleasant due to the general social psychological principle of communication with an "Unfamiliar Them" often being more difficult and more prone to misunderstandings and latent subconscious attitudes about dealing with another group that one perceives is treated wildly differently from oneself. * A very outdated codebase that as an Engineer, one will frequently have to dig through to implement a requested change or bug fix, including, but not limited to, code written for an OS that is technically obsolete, with much of the current Engineering work being part of a multi-year effort to completely remove the reliance on this obsolete OS by re-writing code to be compatible with Linux. * Company-wide move to converting all office space to open-floor plans leading to increasingly noisy and distracting workplace. * Engineering advancement seems to largely fizzle out after one makes Senior Software Engineers, with a combination of hard work, managerial/people skills, and luck required to be offered any real expansion in role or responsibilities beyond that point.

    Advice to Management

    Give Engineers a better sense of what's going on in the company at large, instead of fostering a culture where Engineers are basically kept in an isolated bubble. Also, promote interaction and increased familiarity (cross-departmental team-building/professional development/company morale events and the like) between members of different departments, as there IS a need for members of different departments to actually interact with each other during the course of business, and those exchanges will be much more productive and pleasant if everybody if there was a general sense of familiarity instead of the current atmosphere where it sometimes feels like members of different departments might as well be employees of a totally different company.
