    "FactSet - A place for the complacent (and no ones' first choice workplace)"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Consultant in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Consultant in New York, NY
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Easy to get hired (simple interview process, recruit at both strong and mediocre schools
    -Strong ability to network with professionals in financial services
    -Social environment may be desirable to those who still want to be in college

    Cons

    -Work is cumbersome, not stimulating, and menial
    -Creative/novel ideas are dismissed, management sticks to the status quo
    -You are basically a call center and will continue to be on phone support for your first 2 years
    -No tasks in this position actually feel important (you answer helpdesk calls, email clients asking them to meet you so you can show them new product features - and most of them turn you down)
    -"Client visits" often make you feel unimportant because often times your clients simply do not care that they have FactSet on their computers and wondering why you insisted on showing up in person
    -The worst part is how complacent everyone is - I can put in 50% of the effort as the person next to me, but we will be considered for promotion after we hit a certain amount of time, NOT after we demonstrate professional growth and accomplishments

    Advice to Management

    -Stop masquerading a call center as a consulting hub and leading employees on
    -Increase pay and offer performance bonuses to consultants
    -Open your minds to new solutions, some consultants actually have good ideas - use them!
