Good, but far from great

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

I have been working at FactSet full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Health insurance is outstanding, free lunch (~$8) monday - thursday, decent pay although a bit low. I would only recomend this place to a friend because of the health insurance.

Cons

Almost no vertical movement available, severe micro-management by director-level people, annual review system makes no sense at all and almost everyone hates it with a passion yet HR will not change it, no path for complaints without real fear of retaliation and backlash. Also, FactSet does NOT PAY the FEDERALLY MANDATED reimbursement for 24-hour on-call rotations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Read federal and state labor laws. Provide more opportunity for current employees or watch them go elsewhere.
