    I have been working at Morningstar

    Pros

    The culture at Morningstar is very relaxed and inclusive. The rapport between employees is generally one of casual friends. You are recognized by your peers and management when you perform well. Management is very understanding when an employee needs to take time off for personal reasons.

    Cons

    Morningstar has a large technology base off-shore so increasingly a lot of the work has been shifted there. Compensation purely in terms of salary is not on par with competitors because of the large off shore workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morningstar should concentrate on growing their US business more heavily. Issues most often arise because of miscommunication or time-lag. If teams are not fragmented so much, I believe that the company would have a faster turn around on products.

    I have been working at Morningstar

    Pros

    Benefits, work/life balance, sabbaticals, coworkers are nice, casual dress code, free beverages.

    Cons

    Salaries, employees get pressured to split up their valuable sabbatical time, turning it into normal vacations. Stability of workforce means there's not much vertical movement unless you quit and get rehired in a new spot.
