    I worked at FactSet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salaries, great benefits, good work/life balance. Company has been steadily growing for years leading to room to move up.

    Cons

    Back in the day there was a hard core commitment to in-house developed tools and libraries, which made developing a well-rounded skill set more of a challenge.
