Strong focus on cost cutting and margin expansion. Not so much on career development....

Pros

Great global footprint.
Smart people in all departments and at all levels.
Strong strategic focus.
People who know how to deliver strong results.

Cons

Some very senior managers show no loyalty to staff.
Some emerging markets offices never receive visits from senior managers.
Loyalty is not evenly rewarded.
Promotions at the highest levels are motivated for reasons other than merit-based.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

TREAT employees more decently. TRAIN them more consistently. TRUST them to do their jobs.

    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.
