    Former Employee - FI DCS Analyst in Berkeley, CA

    I worked at MSCI

    Pros

    * Learn directly how the backoffice IT systems of financial companies work.
    * Learn indirectly how financial risk management software works.
    * Work with people from around the world, in your office as well as the other offices around the world.
    * Decent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    * The financial aspects of risk management, at least in the Berkeley office, is overwhelmed with the day-to-day necessities of keeping a data processing infrastructure going. There is not much time left for financial analysis, if that is what you are looking to learn.
    * Management does not understand how the IT systems work, so there can be a lot of misunderstanding.
    * The company is outsourcing a lot of its work to offshore locations, so if you are American and want to stay that way, good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Spend more time trying to learn how the systems you oversee actually work, and a little less time in meetings.

  2.  

    Great place to work if you want a place that will listen openly to your ideas, and help you to execute them.
