I have been working at MSCI full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good compensation and benefits Large bonus they say..

Cons

Work is routinary. Mostly it is about data gathering, similar to market data vendors like reuters. Work involves a lot of IT, and very little finance. Most jobs not relevant to CFA, FRM or other finance/investment certifications. Company reducing cost. Wont pay OT on work on Sunday, but instead gives time off on week day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sunday OT must be paid. Sunday is very different from weekday. Sunday is used to spend time with family and friends. Weekday day off, people work. Who would you spent time with on a weekday day off? Nobody.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at MSCI full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    High growth company, can be an exciting place to work, nice culture where everyone gets on yet is still personally ambitious without being backstabbing

    Cons

    Slow to make decisions, management can be distant, career development needs to improve now the company has grown - little real high impact investment here.

    Management top heavy with Men, particularly men whose wives stay at home, hence little clue about what it is to be a working mom

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your people, less to internal meetings with other managers

    I worked at MSCI

    Pros

    It's a place with excellent teamwork / collaboration, and excellent work environment, ranging from local duties to global responsibilites. There are several interesting projects in development all the time, and they take your collaboration and opinions seriously.
    There are also some good career development opportunities along the way, and they care about their employees.

    Cons

    - Some lack of global company vision / communication
