    I worked at FactSet

    Pros

    good work atmosphere, good lunch program, and flexible work schedule. Everyone was very friendly, and the software is a great product. The lunch program is a great benefit too.

    Cons

    The review process is flawed as it doesn't leave you feeling motivated after the fact. Compensation is more cut and dry this is what you get, instead of really reflecting your how well you complete your work.
