A solid place to work

Sales (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsRiskMetrics had a great, laid-back culture, nice people and very good benefits. Compensation was fair compared to other companies, and management generally showed respect for workers. The company seemed to promote a very strong work-life balance.

ConsWhile the people were very friendly, the culture was sometimes dry--mostly because a lot of people lacked social skills. While I think it was a good place to work, there seemed to be few opportunities for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think management should work a bit more on continued training and development of current employees and also offer more opportunities to younger, less experienced workers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Lots of big promises that are… Advice to Senior Management: Pay people better. Judge businesses by their results rather than their mangers' charm offensives. And ensure that MSCI doesn;t do to RiskMetrics what… More
