    I worked at FactSet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people, lots of problems to solve, and easy to take control of the design of a project.
    They hire in waves of people so you get to know a small group of people very well there.

    Cons

    You can get stuck in a certain part of the company, it can be hard to transfer between groups.
    The politics with the overall direction of the company can be hard fought.
