FactSet hi, does anyone have experience working for FactSet in Norwalk, CT? How is the culture like? Are they promoting from within? Turnover? Benefits? Pay? Work-life balance? I’m applying for an investment type role and taking a job with them would require relocation. Anything that you can share is much appreciated, thanks!

Great Company - Poor OnboardingMay 26, 2023 - Associate Implementation Specialist in Austin, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great culture, smart people, innovative and forward thinking company.
onboarding for external hires is cumbersome as the workstation is massive and takes quite a while to learn how to use. the team is spread across the country so it's tough to come in with 0 knowledge of the product. I will say the company is actively working on improving the onboarding and learning process.

Good work life balance, solid benefits, ok salaryApr 6, 2023 - Senior UX Specialist in New York, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Work life balance is great Free health insurance Trending in a positive direction – added more time off before I left
Salaries are probably median for tech – considering it's supposed to be a Bloomberg competitor, I would expect them to be above average Behind on tech industry trends – more like working for a bank than fintech Lots of bureaucracy to jump through. Can be very frustrating to try to get anything done. Career levels are pretty meaningless. I saw some jobs with no real meaning created pretty arbitrarily to "promote" people Legacy tech/product Some leadership/management who have seniority but not experience No bonuses for UX team – supremely undervalued at the companyContinue reading

If Culture and Work/Life Balance Matters, Come Work HereApr 5, 2023 - Director in New York, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
FactSet has made massive progress, and acknowledges that there is more work to be done. They are truly invested in their caring culture to make sure that they have a an inclusive, diverse culture that empowers everyone to learn and grow while having a good work/life balance. As an employee, you feel like a person and not a number that they will try to accommodate. They have also done a good job of not being overwhelmed by red tape to empower people to get things done and innovate.
There is still work to be done to foster diversity in the workforce, which should be supported by hiring practices at every level as well as promotions.

Great people to work with. Management is always trying to balance employees work/life balance.
Frequent re-organization can be frustrating for employees even when it makes sense for the business.
