I worked at FactSet full-time

Pros

Free lunch, you barely have to do any real work , great if you can't bear giving up the frat house atmosphere of college, no drug testing

Cons

Talentless hacks, political infighting, lazy engineers , working on outdated systems, you won't learn anything relevant to the real world

Advice to Management

Give up. Nice stock price. Can you do anything right?

    I have been working at FactSet full-time (More than a year)

    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.
