Honeymoon period will not last long...

Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at FactSet

Prosgood work-life balance
stress free Job
free lunch Monday-Thursday
full health benefits
401-K match and stock plan
lot's of responsibility only months into the job
excellent exposure to clients

Cons- Compensation and promotion policies here are a mystery
- If you ask questions, you will hear the same generic answer from all levels of management over and over again
- Pay is sub-par, with no performance bonus and small raises
- You will not be rewarded for working hard
- Has become more bureaucratic in past couple of years

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on employee development rather than recruiting. Pay employees competitive salaries or bonuses and quality of the product will increase

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
