I have been working at Morningstar full-time for 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..

    Former Employee - Product Manager

    I worked at Morningstar as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Work/life balance is great, 9-5 is the best way to describe the culture. Office environment is extremely open, the execs sit in the same open cubicles as everyone else. Everyone is extremely nice.

    Cons

    Office atmosphere almost too relaxing that it can sometimes be hard to stay on task.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job, the employees like the relaxed atmosphere and it really shows.
