Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Morningstar full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

- Smart People
- Not working weekends and crazy hours

Cons

- Need to hire more people to take on projects and work that just isn't being done
- Pay isn't that great, and neither are benefits any more.. Care more about shareholder value now than Employee morale
- Very flat organization with very, very little room for management experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loosen up a bit on the purse strings..

    I worked at Morningstar full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    very nice people, nice office, pretty good benefits

    Cons

    I said the people are nice, but the place is a beaurocracy and there are many who are insanely over paid for the complete lack of talent. Meanwhile some very talented people are paid below market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This isn't the government... it's at-will employment. Lay off the people who can't do their jobs.
