    I have been working at Morningstar full-time (more than a year)


    It's casual. During company meetings they show videos that are genuinely funny. People are basically nice. You can take as much time off as you want.


    There's a bit of paralysis by analysis. No one wants to make decisions. They higher a ridiculous number of business analysts who don't really make things any better. There is a lot of passive aggressiveness. Some departments are a bit lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a good place, but try to make stronger decisions. Try to get rid of passive aggressive culture.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Interview Details

    Three Interviews and a tour of the campus, Beware that they like to low ball your salary and play it off that what they offer you is market. The only thing great about working here is the location and casual dress code.

    Interview Questions
    • Basic interrogation on what you did in the past companies. Many questions that they ask are behavior types and like to drill down to a very specific answer. They tend to showcase they work area and praise the work-life balance they have. People stay there in the company for a long time but seem to change their role very often.   Answer Question
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
