I have been working at MSCI

Pros

- 4 weeks paid vacation plus 10 sick days
- very smart people

Cons

- strategy of offshoring creates insecurity among US staff and creates need to be available around the clock for meetings in various time zones

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Engage more with all levels of staff to understand ground level challenges
- Examine strategy to hire in emerging market regions as it is creating stress among US staff as folks have to work around th clock to accomodate meetings in budapest, HK, Mumbai and Monterrey

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere - jeans and t-shirts are permitted. Very intelligent co-workers. Interesting work.

    Cons

    Work-life balance different for each different department. If you work for a boss with no life, expect to have no life yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Going public was a bad idea for employees. A culture as strong as RMG cannot survive when it has to answer to private equity and executive boards.

    Pros

    Flexible times and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Not a particularly professional management that seems to be driven by emotions rather than by strategy and focus. Communication is very poor and essentially non-existing, unless one is in privileged circles (it is so bad that it can affect one's work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your subordinates with more respect and try to understand what they do.
    Use their skills and strengths better, share information and delegate responsibilities.
    Be more transparent and straightforward.
    Motivate and create professional growth opportunities.
