    I worked at FactSet full-time

    Pros

    For sure, only cab facility.

    Cons

    Evaluation system, Career Progression Plan, Salary structures and revisions, most importantly the management (AM above). No one has any idea of what is data and research. People from non-finance domain manage core finance domain teams. Managers have no idea on what the data is, all they is play around with charts and show reports that are no way related to product or goal of the organization.

    The Management is comprised of 2 or 3 people (with one leading by just shouting). His vision of the company is more important than the Mission Statement of the company itself. With his outstanding methods of evaluation, the essence of research has been washed away. No one comes to work with a commitment, they come to work and leave. You have no idea of how you will be evaluated and you don't even know if you will get a reward or a PIP.
    Everyone is rated on a common sheet which has no logic. No one knows what operations is but everyone uses the term wherever needed. A lead need not know what his team does, he needs to know operations (God know operations of what). You will be evaluated based on your desperation at work and not output. Also, attractive females get perks like early promotions (if you are close to Management) reasons which are known to no one.

    Advice to Management

    Remove people who do not understand data from key posts. People who worked in call centers and have sales background should not be managing research teams. Six sigma projects will not give company new clients, listen to the competition first. And start using the latest technology.

    I have been working at FactSet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working in FactSet has its own benefits (talking for a Software Engineer)
    - Its a great company to start with (Unlimited opportunities / Nice Technologies to work on)
    - Work From Home.
    - Work Life Balance (They will make you a type of person who wants to work on time irrespective of what you have been in your past)
    - Transport facility
    - Two appraisals per year
    - Good number of leaves

    Cons

    The one thing which comes in my mind under this topic is compensation.
    They don't pay you less, but comparing it from market one may feel sometimes.

    But, to overcome that as well, The senior level management are doing market corrections to change that mentailty of employees as well.
