Current Employee - Lead Software Engineer in London, England (UK)
Current Employee - Lead Software Engineer in London, England (UK)

I have been working at FactSet

Pros

FactSet has provided me with opportunities to meet new people, learn new technologies and provided space to develop ideas into fully fledged products. The team ethic at FactSet is second to none and selfless way in which team members help others achieve goals for the benefit of all leads to great rewards. Senior execs are happy to speak with new recruits in the hallways and no question is off limit. It really helps cement the feeling that my opinions are taking and considered seriously and courteously.

Cons

If you don't like travel, then sometimes the intercontinental trips can become tiresome, but that is something that is easily overcome. If you don't like open offices that foster communication between teams and team members, then you can always put on some headphones and listen to some tunes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not much, only to continue the great levels of transparency so that the teams that deliver the vision can continue to feel like stakeholders in the process.

    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.
