Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I have been working at FactSet

Pros

Great benefits
Flexible hours
Very smart and friendly co-workers
Opportunities for advancement in software engineering exist, if you are willing to speak up for yourself and make management aware of your desires

Cons

QA department is woefully under-staffed
Product Developers have too much control over engineering - they often tell engineers exactly which projects to work on and how to do them

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We are a software company, to succeed, you'll need to ensure that good software engineers want to work here. Lack of support for engineering decisions from senior management and product development make the good engineers walk away.

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful colleagues
    Free lunch
    Flexible working hours as long as you get the work done
    Relative job security (offset by poor pay in cons below)

    Cons

    Poor pay - have felt underpaid from day one
    Salary is very hush hush - feels like those who complain or threaten to leave get the bigger raises
    Career path is DIY - don't get much guidance from managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please rethink the salary scheme since it's the main drawback to working here
