I worked at FactSet full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people, lots of problems to solve, and easy to take control of the design of a project.
They hire in waves of people so you get to know a small group of people very well there.

Cons

You can get stuck in a certain part of the company, it can be hard to transfer between groups.
The politics with the overall direction of the company can be hard fought.

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

    Pros

    Health insurance is outstanding, free lunch (~$8) monday - thursday, decent pay although a bit low. I would only recomend this place to a friend because of the health insurance.

    Cons

    Almost no vertical movement available, severe micro-management by director-level people, annual review system makes no sense at all and almost everyone hates it with a passion yet HR will not change it, no path for complaints without real fear of retaliation and backlash. Also, FactSet does NOT PAY the FEDERALLY MANDATED reimbursement for 24-hour on-call rotations.

    Advice to Management

    Read federal and state labor laws. Provide more opportunity for current employees or watch them go elsewhere.
