Best Places to Work: 2012 (#31)
I have been working at Morningstar full-time (More than 8 years)
Morningstar has an open and permissive culture and a flexible work life balance. The people are kind, analytical and thoughtful.
Over the years, as Morningstar grew, that permissiveness has allowed some in the firm to take advantage of the culture and flexibility.
The new CEO has addressed this problem openly and empowered leaders to challenge those who take advantage of the flexibility, something many of us appreciate and feel is a long time coming. This has been a good overall but has also generated some strong feelings from disgruntled former and current employees in the halls and on Glassdoor.
Advice to Management
It is openly discussed in the hallways of one former employee from the marketing group who has written multiple revenge posts on Glassdoor and that others are doing the same. Consider reporting this to Glassdoor, these rants are hurting our reputation and our recruiting.
If you are considering Morningstar as a place to work, know that the true character of Morningstar is not represented by the impolite behavior of the angry employees writing on this sight.
Phone interview and now going to final interview in Chicago. Will update this review once I go there. Interviewer was late to the phone interview session, and we spent most of the time actually talking about his role in the company.
We're pleased to share the news that Morningstar earned a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2018 Corporate Equality Index, and received the distinction of a "Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality." We are committed to the belief that workplace diversity leads to better business outcomes, and it's the right thing to do!
We’re excited to share that our newly renovated 14th floor in the Chicago office has been featured in Contract magazine, a leading publication for commercial interior design and architecture.
