    I have been working at FactSet full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Flexible, but that all depends on your direct chain of management. Working closely with product development allows you to make technical decisions and shape up the code base within your scope.

    Cons

    Not a big fan of old technology that's still being used. Migrating from one platform to another takes forever. Too much legacy stuff to maintain

    Pros

    Good for fresh new graduate to get into financial market, learn financial knowledge and financial tools and huge exposure to financial clients.

    Cons

    good for fresh new graduate, better move after 2-3 years for better career

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

    Pros

    Pick and drop cab facility,salary hike for every six months based on our performance,snacks and food facility,more chances to build our career as a fresher,good work environment and internal job postings to shift internally where we wish to work.

    Cons

    Low salary for freshers,no salary variation for graduates and post graduates,rotational shifts,no night shift allowance.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to give advice to increase salary for fresher's as per market standards. Now starting salary for fresher's is as low as daily wage labourers earnings per Month. There is a scope to do two analysts work by one analyst in our company. Try to find ways to get efficient and effective productivity from employees by giving sufficient salaries to fulfill their basic needs.
