    Thank you for your feedback, we always value commentary on Glassdoor. At MSCI we pride ourselves with demonstrating flexibility in the way our teams operate – we believe engaged teams are more productive and flexibility is a key driver of engagement. We are fully supportive of our employees and are keen to promote a healthy balance between work and non work - we try to be respectful of people's time and importance of families and friends. We encourage anyone who feels they are not getting the support they need, or if they are finding their stress levels to be unmanageable to speak up - either to their manager, or a colleague, or to their local HR representative.

    I have been working at MSCI full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Amazing platform and strong client relationships, smart hardworking people, earnest focus on diversity, inclusion. We were slow to catch on at first but the culture has transformed enormously in the last few years in a really genuine way.

    Cons

    Somewhere between a start up and a larger firm - some growing pains are inevitable. High intensity culture, very performance driven, but the pace and expectations can be unsustainable for some.
