    Pros

    Good vacation: 4 full weeks. If you are a diligent worker, should feel secure in your position. Commute is easy with BART. Name recognition within the industry, looks good on the resume. Company does sponsor CFA studies and test taking. Work hours are reasonable. Good place if your background is physics or financial analysis. If you are a researcher, it is a really good place.

    Cons

    As a software developer in a finance oriented company, you are treated like a commodity. The company is actively pursuing offshoreing, outsourcing, whatever you want to call it. Upper management seems only focused on increasing the perception of value to investors, while neglecting the nuts and bolts of the everyday operations. Famous quote from the CEO: "In real estate there are three essential things: location, location, location. In our business, it's data, data, data." But many employees are left wondering why the actions dont match the words. Not much feeling of comeradery or team/company spirit.

    Advice to Management

    Don't kill the golden goose. You cant downsize and offshore your way to success. Stop thinking like an investment banker, and start thinking like a leader. People probably dont really expect corporate leadership to be totally honest, so stop trying so hard to convince us of that.

    I worked at MSCI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with high ranks employees, executive directors, VPs and sometimes managing directors. The people we work with are all professionals.

    Cons

    Overworked but OTs are not being paid always. All are okay except how we are being managed.

    Advice to Management

    Should focus more on resolving issues not on what caused the issues.
