I have been working at FactSet full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Free lunch in the cafeteria. Indoor parking. Norwalk is a pretty cool city.

Cons

Only $8/day stipend for lunch in the cafeteria. Does not rollover when not used. No free lunch on fridays. Food is mediocre. Only 3 weeks vacation that doesn't rollover. Hi co-pays and deductibles on health insurance. Bare minimum of holidays off; Thanksgiving day, xmas day, New Years day, for example. No satellite days. Florescent lighting everywhere. Too bright and uncomfortable. Doesn't use cutting edge software technologies and practices. Salary is below area average. Mostly hires straight out of college software engineers, so not a lot of experience in the talent pool to draw from. Overuse of C++ design patterns makes very unreadable code. ZERO policy for documenting code.

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

    Pros

    Challenges, Compensation, and Community. I really loved working with the people there and overcoming tough technical challenges.

    Cons

    "Slow and steady wins the race". I fell like senior management doesn't take enough risks to stay relevant in a highly competitive market.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive
