Horrible Compensation Structure

I have been working at MSCI full-time

Pros

People doing the actual work are very smart.

Cons

Very vague and unfair compensation structure. Everything is know at the end of the year so there is uncertainity for full year for employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please reward the employees in the US. They are worth every penny. Just focussing on low cost workers in India and China is not going to help the company long term.

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

    Pros

    You will have an opportunity to meet people from all over the world, especially people from India and the Phillipines, as you train them to do your job.

    Cons

    MSCI uses all forms of trickery to extract as much work from employees as possible. The company will tell you one thing and then do another, all without offering a reasonable explanation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees in developed markets are very valuable and worth their cost. Someday you will learn this lesson.

    Some very good people and some very odd decisions

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

    Pros

    Intelligent people at just about every level. High degree of technology though the environment is locked down a bit. Indexing business makes money without trying and is thus the prized group. A sales company disguised as a financial tech company.

    Cons

    Lot of in-house applications which is ok but lead to random bugs. Tech decisions are all done out of the cadre in London while the implementation is done by a team in Budapest. Service Desk based in Mumbai can often lead to frustration. Hope you're looking for a position with the indexing side, otherwise look out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least one local office support person would help a lot, i've seen people be without a computer for 3 days at times. Cost cutting of personnel leads to higher turnover on those thinking they're next.
