    I have been working at FactSet

    Pros

    Immense support from Teams, Lot of perks like Cab pick-up and drop. and lot more

    Cons

    It varies from team to team but, in my point of view, Compensation offered for the work we do is not in par. Lot of work pressure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation is too low, please look in to this. Discrepancy in policies make the work difficult to perform.

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

    Pros

    6months salary appraisal, flexible work timing, good people in india

    Cons

    Very bad work culture, especially how indians are treated by us counter parts and no transparency in promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its fine to delete the engineering department to a subordinate and forget.... but in that scenario you have to be triply carefull you have a competent and right guy looking after the things.. when the tech leadership is incompetent it has a very bad long term impact on your inhouse technology product, quality etc etc... so choose your subordinates carefully.
