Former Employee - Research Analyst in New York, NY
Former Employee - Research Analyst in New York, NY

I worked at FactSet full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Interesting work, free lunch, nice offices with strong employees

Cons

Extremely slow in improving the product. They moved my group over seas and were extremely disinterested in improvements before the move. Seemed like they knew it was coming for years but wanted to have people quit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the research group.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in New York, NY

    I worked at FactSet full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For the most part great people. Some very very technically talented, experienced, smart people. They take care of their employees (excellent health care package, free lunch, stocked pantries, excellent work-life balance).

    Cons

    Promotions are based on tenure, rather than expertise, guts & glory, or accomplishments.
    It's a big company and with that comes a lot of red tape and bureaucracy, making changes, even with the best of intent, is a challenge. Projects become stale over time, and the diversity of work can be limited (though this varies drastically by the team that you are in).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your rising stars the opportunities to do just that: rise.
    Allow employees to move around teams more easily.
