Pros

MSCI Barra has wonderful products, talented people, and a great client list. You will learn a lot.

Cons

Opportunity to move up can be dangled like a carrot for years. Little respect for personal time. Pay does not seem connected to performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

MSCI Barra attracts talented people, but is unable to keep them. There would be a large increase in satisfaction from clients if employees were more consistent and knowledgeable people were provided incentive to stay.

    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.
