    I have been working at FactSet for less than a year

    Pros

    When it comes to Software Engineering, Working with some really nice and talented counterparts across shores is a Pros. (Again totally subject to your team and Group) Again totally subject to your team and Group, you might get a chance to work / experiment with cool technologies. Flexible working Hours. Good work life balance, Inspite of some spikes in workloads, it is calm and manageable all along the year.

    Cons

    Horrendous HR policies in India. A Very disillusioned recruiting team, which is probably is killing FactSet's Image as a "Technology First" company in their desperate effort to show Hyderabad as a dirt cheap talent market. The Pay is always not proportional to the complexity of engineering tasks handled by engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Some serious soul searching is required in HR and recruiting departments in India
