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

    Pros

    Free lunch, correspondence with C level suite at clients, overall willingness for people to help. FactSet is a great place to begin your career - from both a Consulting and Sales side of things, Regular correspondence with C level clients will begin early, allowing you to build up your sales and consulting skills (transferrable). Free lunch is pretty awesome too. Generally, the people you work with are smart, driven,...

    Cons

    Having moved into another SaaS company, I have seen some light in regards to problems FactSet had. First and foremost - the pay. I know it's always easy to complain about pay, but FactSet's pay is well under what you could make elsewhere. In sales, specifically, there is zero commission. No commission and no real ties to performance (outside of a lofty 6 month review), does not incentivize the sales organization correctly....

    Pros

    Good benefits Young, friendly environment Good work life balance

    Cons

    High Turnover Very corporate, internal politics

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers not only on the merit of their quantitative past production, but promote managers who are good with people and care about the people who report to them - that is how you reduce turnover

    I worked at FactSet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to get started and build out a sold base of work experience that you can leverage in your later career. Overall pretty easy job if you don't want to work very hard. ie High base salary and little to no performance based compensation for salespeople until higher levels.

    Cons

    Mostly a lot of mid-life pensioners (not all). FactSet is where your career ambitions go to die. Do not stay here longer than 3 or 4 years.

    Pros

    Fun work environment, with ability to take on significant responsibility early in career., and work with interesting and intelligent clients across the financial industry.

    Advice to Management

    Improve transparency in performance/compensation reviews. Address complacent middle managers.

    Pros

    collaborative environment, good place to enhance soft skills

    Cons

    Management is very subjective and political. Turnover increasing with nobody to pick up the work load. Everyone becomes unhappy and quits in the end.

    Advice to Management

    compensate your top talent before they all quit, and stop telling them that their futures at the company look bright when you can't show them how much they're valued.

    Continue to layout the high level company vision and be more clear with implications that will have on mid to lower level employees.

    I worked at FactSet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work culture, dynamic, youthful with a strong sense of "everyone in it together". Lots of social interaction, both in the office and with evenings/lunches out

    Cons

    Pay is not very generous, especially after the first step of your career there. Company strategy seems to have hit a bit of a wall - growth is not as fast as before and the company do not seem to be aggressively searching for new growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better to keep talent from leaving the company. Look to move the company to the next level by investing in new areas for growth.
