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

Pros

Some smart people around.
Competitors aren't much better.
Dynamic culture. Lots of aggressive managers, male and female.
It's like Wall Street without the big bonuses

Cons

Too much greed. Comp doesn't reward hard work nor results. Or is it only top management who gets well paid?
Career upside is only for sales people
Hectic. TOO MUCH politics.

Advice to Management

Stock price isn't a culture.

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

    Pros

    Riskmetrics was a start-up inhabiting the body of a publicly traded financial firm. It was a magnet for people who loved finance but weren't big fans of Wall Street's cultural rot. Working there was a privilege.

    Cons

    - Compensation was not good, and they often renegged on compensation promises.
    - MSCI snuffed out many of the best aspects of the culture when they made the acquisition. It became less innovative, and people who were once empowered entrepreneurs were turned into drones.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, don't just enrich yourselves from their efforts.
