Pros

Some really smart people who are the top of their field.
Fairly flexible approach to working
Good Technology Infrastructure internally to enable the above.

Cons

Attempts to outsource to developing nations means those teams are isolated from the rest of the other teams, those teams don't understand how the company operates, what is key and important, and what is more trivial, and who the clients are.
Technology can only innovate if you employ the best people, you cannot find these unless you get them from the best places. Mumbai is not good enough.

Advice to Management

Senior Management look after themselves even after a complete mess up and do not take warnings from the operation level seriously enough. Need to get back to ground level to understand how the stuff works.

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

    Pros

    High growth company, can be an exciting place to work, nice culture where everyone gets on yet is still personally ambitious without being backstabbing

    Cons

    Slow to make decisions, management can be distant, career development needs to improve now the company has grown - little real high impact investment here.

    Management top heavy with Men, particularly men whose wives stay at home, hence little clue about what it is to be a working mom

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your people, less to internal meetings with other managers
