FactSet is in a great position to take market share from their competitors. At a certain point however, engineers and product development need to focus speed and stability over bell and whistles.

    Pros

    Free lunch, you barely have to do any real work , great if you can't bear giving up the frat house atmosphere of college, no drug testing

    Cons

    Talentless hacks, political infighting, lazy engineers , working on outdated systems, you won't learn anything relevant to the real world

    Advice to Management

    Give up. Nice stock price. Can you do anything right?
