Pros

Small company environment, with opportunities to excel with hardwork.

Cons

Most managers work on perception, and that may lead to unfair treatment of employees. Not all groups have similar requirements for promotion or compensation bonuses etc. so that can be demoralising if you are at not in the 'right group, or the more favored projects'.
Also the whole cost cutting thing is getting too far, the Berkeley office has been shrinking and everyone's expected to almost work on a 24hr cycle to keep up with the offshore offices.

Advice to Management

value the hardwork your employees put in regardless of whether they are in your most favorite projects or not.

    Pros

    MSCI Barra has wonderful products, talented people, and a great client list. You will learn a lot.

    Cons

    Opportunity to move up can be dangled like a carrot for years. Little respect for personal time. Pay does not seem connected to performance.

    Advice to Management

    MSCI Barra attracts talented people, but is unable to keep them. There would be a large increase in satisfaction from clients if employees were more consistent and knowledgeable people were provided incentive to stay.


  2. "Entrepreneurial and free thinking culture is the main attraction."
