Pros

FactSet generally values its employees. People are treated with respect, managers are flexible, and you are given great opportunities right from the start. For a recent college grad, the Consultant role teaches a lot and helps one develop important professional skills.

Cons

After a few years in that role, you either settle into a routine role where you stop being challenged, or you leave the firm. For people who like to be challenged, leave the firm after a few years. If you want to do the same thing every single day and not be challenged at all, stay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire management instead of promoting everyone from the Consultant level. Managers have no perspective, no leadership experience, and at a certain point they just have nothing to offer more junior employees with ambition.

    Pros

    Young office, very laid back, everyone is pretty much right out of college. They give you a good amount of responsibility fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Work can be monotonous- easy to lose engagement. Pay is not great, but there are usually frequent raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with consultants
