    I have been working at FactSet full-time (More than 5 years)


    - FactSet uses many different technologies. If it's out there, somebody is probably using it somewhere at FactSet, so you have opportunities to learn about what you're interested in. - Smart engineering coworkers. With few exceptions, the other engineers you'll work with are great engineers who can teach you something. Also if you need help with a particular technology, you can usually find a true expert at FactSet. - FactSet is big on "promoting from within," meaning when they have an important new role, they first look at existing employees to see who could fill that role. That translates into many more opportunities for career advancement than you would see otherwise. - Respectful workplace. The finance industry horror stories don't apply here. - Reasonable deadlines, but you will also be challenged appropriately to help you grow. - A stable but continually growing company. Trust me, you want to be in a company that is planning for growth, rather than one that is managing a decline. - Good health insurance.


    - FactSet has done a poor job at incorporating prior acquisitions into its corporate structure. Companies acquired in 2004 still have their own engineering hierarchies completely outside of the Software Engineering vertical, with the result you might expect. - On that note, if you have a dependency on another team and things aren't working out, you often have no recourse. Often you will have to accept the issue indefinitely and spend engineering effort devising workarounds to other teams' issues, instead of interesting things. - The corporate hierarchy doesn't give enough opportunities for meaningful feedback. If they did, I would complain about the above points. It's improved a bit, i.e. we got a survey a few months ago, and they did town halls. But either there are many pain points going unmissed, OR the leadership is aware but hasn't communicated that fact. - Upper SoE management is pretty removed from engineering teams. They solve the "recognition" problem with an annual award for a single engineer, but it ends up feeling like favoritism. - The "Engineering Culture" could be improved. Outside of actual work, there isn't much exchange of interesting ideas or career education, which compares poorly to my image of Silicon Valley companies. - Few social events, and the ones that do exist revolve heavily around drinking, which I dislike. Also, there's no reason that social events need to be segregated across verticals (Engineering vs PD vs Consulting vs Sales) as they are now.

    Advice to Management

    Based on my Cons: - Integrate acquisitions more effectively, including the ones you haven't yet from way back when. - Look harder for pain points between teams and help solve them. - Help engineers understand that their work is at least noticed by the rest of the company, especially teams that work in backend. - Create a more vibrant engineering culture. - Diversify the social events, both in terms of the actual events and in terms of the participants. - Create better feedback mechanisms.
