Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good work/life balance
Ethical management
Good benefits

Cons

Confused vision from management
Poor incentives for experienced employees
Lots of internal politics
Limited recognition for a job well-done

Advice to Management

Focus less on hiring college grads and more on making Morningstar a rewarding place for someone to spend his career. Notice high job level dissatisfication among experienced employees and make the changes necessary to keep them onboard.

    I worked at Morningstar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great, and the work environment is fun and in a great location.

    Cons

    Can be a bit disorganized because of the way business is siloed. This is not really a bad thing, because it means most business units can handle business in the best way for that product or team.

    Advice to Management

    Be very careful as you move toward strengthening core businesses and trimming profitable ones on the periphery. There is a lot of good talent that feels the resource squeeze, and it can scare good people away.

    Pros

    Management is very co-operative.
    If you have new ideas, you are encouraged to implement those.
    Curiosity is always answered .
    People respect each other and are eager to help. Free coffee, soda. Lot of opportunities to attend training sessions. Your idea is always welcomed and if viable is bought into implementation for benefit of whole company

    Cons

    Difficult to grow within your own team, so sometimes it is necessary to change your teams to grow within the company
