Pros

FactSet allows many opportunities to travel and work with many different types of clients in the financial community. Most days are never the same and a growing company with small-company agility.

Cons

Pay is not as competitive as competitors, however it it offset by great work-life balance. Also, sometimes you become envious of your clients and wish to work in their positions (again, not necessarily a disadvantage).

Advice to Management

Visit all the offices worldwide and get better handle on regional needs.

    I worked at FactSet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance, snacks, free lunch.
    Some very smart people work here.

    Cons

    The compensation is sub-standard. You should not expect to get significant year-over-year raises. It makes no difference if you put extra effort and/or hours. You have no career opportunities. Incompetent managers thrive. There are quite a lot of incompetent people working here.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the competency of the new hires and mid-management.
