      Great Company Culture!

      Pros

      Lots of opportunity for career development, inclusive environment, endless opportunity to showcase your work, mentorship for more junior roles, hackathons for the tech development and resident programs, learning sessions, etc. , a huge emphasis on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion with multiple Business Resource Groups dedicated to advocacy, outreach, recruitment and development of diverse talent (including but not limited to gender equality, women in tech, black community, Latinx community, south Asian community, east Asian community, LGBTQ+ community). Opportunities to attend large conferences e.g. Grace Hopper. 1k a year stipend per employee for educational purposes, unlimited* time off means no budgeting sick days, every 4 years you earn yourself a sabbatical of 6 weeks paid leave.

      Cons

      This depends on your product/team, many products work with teams in multiple time zones (e.g. Chicago, Shenzhen and Mumbai) which can be a challenge. Sometimes having unlimited time off means people don't take time off because they don't want to be seen as overdoing it.

      Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoy Morningstar's inclusive environment and growth opportunities. We also appreciate your perspective on the global work environment and unlimited time off. Taking time to recharge is so important and we want our people to feel encouraged to use it when they need it. Time-off may look different now with COVID-19 restrictions but it's just as important as ever. If you aren't feeling supported in this area or have questions about our policies, please reach out to AskHR@morningstar.com.
