I worked at Morningstar full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The people are great, and the work environment is fun and in a great location.

Cons

Can be a bit disorganized because of the way business is siloed. This is not really a bad thing, because it means most business units can handle business in the best way for that product or team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be very careful as you move toward strengthening core businesses and trimming profitable ones on the periphery. There is a lot of good talent that feels the resource squeeze, and it can scare good people away.

    I have been working at Morningstar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management is very co-operative.
    If you have new ideas, you are encouraged to implement those.
    Curiosity is always answered .
    People respect each other and are eager to help. Free coffee, soda. Lot of opportunities to attend training sessions. Your idea is always welcomed and if viable is bought into implementation for benefit of whole company

    Cons

    Difficult to grow within your own team, so sometimes it is necessary to change your teams to grow within the company

    I worked at Morningstar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, people were generally friendly, good 401(k) match.

    Cons

    Low salary, low upward mobility, Morningstar Development Program was unorganized, flexible leave policy makes the organization ineffective, co-workers were not the most intelligent people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more structured system that allows young analysts to move up within the ranks.
