I have been working at Morningstar full-time

Pros

Good benefits
Work life balance
Friendly coworkers
Great work environment

Cons

low base salary
no opportunities to be promoted
tedious job everyday

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to high turn-over rate and improve rewarding strategy across the whole company. You have a bunch of smart and hard-working folks, but treating them equally like others will not help you keep people.
