I have been working at FactSet

Pros

Good benefits package and free lunches, flexible working hours, relaxed atmosphere and not very bureaucratic (but getting more corporate by the minute).

Cons

Very cost aware meaning you do your job and there are no trips nor training. Limited career options and difficult to develop. Low risk and not very inventive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offices outside of US tend to be forgotten, management need to come up with ways to be utilise its resources.

    Tons of opportunity to learn about finance
    Encouragement to take the CFA exam
    Creative individuals are rewarded
    Senior Management is open to new ideas
    Good insurance

    Some of the departments are too uptight.
    Limited work - life flexibility
    Compensation not up to market standards
    Accomplishments are not always rewarded
    Some managers only look at negatives
    Asking for help is taken as lack of knowledge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to be laid back and not too snotty. Norwalk location is not too interesting. They need to be open to individuals who want to work from different locations.

    Pros

    A good start at the begining of your career as FactSet is a good name to carry in the investment arena. Good access and learning how to use FactSet products. Free lunch.

    Cons

    - Innefective middle management
    - Salary is poor, very small increases every year
    - Lack of progression opportunities after 4-5 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Reward the jewels of the team
    - Offer different career paths with potential
    - Make the departments look and feel more professional (most of the engineers turn up in trainers at 10AM - not good)
