    Current Employee - Software Engineer Intern  in  Norwalk, CT
    Current Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Norwalk, CT

    I have been working at FactSet as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Extremely nice people, very knowledgable team of guys that are always willing to help you learn and achieve more; great free lunches Monday-Thursday; relaxed environment; feasible deadlines. There are numerous different areas to work under so that one may become familiar with many diverse technologies.

    Cons

    The company is relatively new and therefore it is smaller than competitors like Bloomberg, so sometimes it may feel a little too casual... but this is a plus for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If possible, try to train more specifics of certain jobs - that being said, you guys do a great job of holding learning sessions for specific lanugages, libraries, and frameworks!
