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

    Pros

    FactSet is a great company with good people and a good product. It starts with a fantastic training program and leads to great exposure for a entry level job. You quickly learn how to interact and communicate with clients of all levels and master the product (some excel but its 99% proprietary FactSet coding). Small company feel even though they've been around for decades. Free lunch, and nice offices with fully stocked...

    Cons

    As of this year the Consulting role is changing dramatically but I will speak to what I know. You have an enormous amount of Help Desk responsibility for the first year or two. The skills you learn do not translate well to other jobs. Niche industry. The main reason I left and several others have is due to slow career growth and poor compensation and its just getting worse. (See my final thoughts below)

    Advice to Management

    I'm a big fan of FactSet as a whole so I really hope management makes some changes in the near future. You're losing your most talented employees on a monthly basis due to the reasons I stated above. Its horrible for retention and motivation when your very best employees are rewarded the same or close to the same as your worst. You can't be so hesitant to fire people. The top 60% of consultants can do the work of...

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits: vacation days, healthcare, young environment, great learning opportunities if you apply yourself. Sponsor the CFA (if you pass) Great exposure to clients including a lot of C-suite folks in the finance community Good place to set yourself up to work for a client and make decent $

    Cons

    The support role isn't very glamorous, and it is quite inconsistent (both good and bad). One day you could be telling someone how to shut off the mobile app and another day you could be building out entire performance reports for a whole firm. After few years of consulting, the bad starts to outweigh the good, but you have to go out and fetch your new job internally. Transition times between consulting and other jobs...

    Advice to Management

    Bloomberg consultants get paid more, it's time to increase our salaries or increase our lunch allotment which hasn't been changed in 15 years.
