    I have been working at MSCI full-time

    Pros

    This is a good company - a number of people I interact with are great, but as with other companies, there are some who are not very pleasant to work with. Managers I've had so far are great - they give you solid advice how to get to your goal and helps you transition from being an individual contributor to becoming a team leader. Mobility is also one of the good points for MSCI since the company is open to assist employees move from one location to another or department to another, if they see that this employee will be a great addition to the team they are transferring to.

    Cons

    I can't see any downsides yet
