    I have been working at MSCI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people. The benefits are not bad, but the stress you go through to get them is not worth it. Single people discrimination is rampant here. If you have a kid you get leave early every day. If you don't, keep working.

    Cons

    Terribly managed operation. Complete lack of leadership with most workers more educated in more appropriate fields than managers.

    I worked at MSCI

    Pros

    New technology to learn deal with. Hmm having a really hard time comming up with pros for this company after working for them for 8 years.

    Cons

    No respect from sinior management. Lack of communication. What sinor management decides goes no matter how wrong it is. You are nothing but a number to them. All they care about is the buttom line. I miss the good old days of RMG :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate and trust your employees and you will find that they will work twice as hard as if you keep yelling and screaming at them as you do now.
    Your quality of service will greatly suffer as you migrate to “Emerging markets” I would suggest against pushing for this.
