Current Employee - Vice President in Berkeley, CA

I have been working at MSCI full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Independent work, diverse, highly motivated and creative people, a long career for top talent. Good vacation and holiday time. Really values clients.

Cons

24-7 weeks, little respect for personal time because you need to be available across global teams during your day and theirs. Can be very political internally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to your employees as people, show a human side.

    I have been working at MSCI full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people. The benefits are not bad, but the stress you go through to get them is not worth it. Single people discrimination is rampant here. If you have a kid you get leave early every day. If you don't, keep working.

    Cons

    Terribly managed operation. Complete lack of leadership with most workers more educated in more appropriate fields than managers.

    I have been working at MSCI full-time

    Pros

    - Capable, smart, driven, and nice people
    - At times can contribute to cutting edge research
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - The firm has been outsourcing jobs and so the future US positions is uncertain.
    - Salaries have been stale in the US offices for years.
