I worked at MSCI

Pros

Some really smart people who are the top of their field.
Fairly flexible approach to working
Good Technology Infrastructure internally to enable the above.

Cons

Attempts to outsource to developing nations means those teams are isolated from the rest of the other teams, those teams don't understand how the company operates, what is key and important, and what is more trivial, and who the clients are.
Technology can only innovate if you employ the best people, you cannot find these unless you get them from the best places. Mumbai is not good enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior Management look after themselves even after a complete mess up and do not take warnings from the operation level seriously enough. Need to get back to ground level to understand how the stuff works.

    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.
