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 Management

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.
