I worked at Morningstar full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Very good values.
Stable job.
Above average 401K match besides other benefits.
If you are a finance professional there is a lot you can learn at Morningstar.

Cons

Lack of growth once you reach team lead/manager.
Pay is not up to market standards.

Advice to Management

Trust your own people from with in. Outsiders are drawing big pay. But has done very little so far.

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

    Pros

    Interesting work, good work/life balance, fair total compensation (benefits, pay, bonus), open vacation policy, paid sabbatical every four years, casual modern and laid-back work environment, great people

    Cons

    Some people promoted to middle management lack training and experience though efforts are being made for improvement in that area. Firing people is a complicated and difficult process; there are underperformers that have checked out and drag down the rest of the team. New hires fresh out of college (called MDPs) receive special treatment that breeds resentment in experienced employees with the company for many years.

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

    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial, very good work culture and company values. Lots of opprtunity to move around the company to gain varied experience.

    Cons

    Can be a little too insular. With so many small teams, lots of duplication of efforts, not as efficient as it could be.
