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

    Pros

    Work life balance Decent salary (not very high, no less) Good learning experience (could depend on project. For a self learner, you have every right to experiment and learn)

    Cons

    No on site opportunities like service companies. A slight increase in salary motivates hard working employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at FactSet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work hours are relatively flexible for engineers, but your mileage may vary depending on your manager. Good work life balance - option to work remotely. Rarely any hard deadlines, rarely (if ever) need to work late. Good benefits - you get the full package: good health insurance (medical, dental, vision), flexible spending account, commuter pretax deductions, life insurance, 401k matching, stock purchase plan

    Cons

    Old outdated tech - it's getting better over the years, but slow to improve. Not much opportunity for growth, low pay raises, slow promotions. Understandable given the size and age of the company.

    I have been working at FactSet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible work hours for Software Engineers Paid time off can be used either as sick or vacation leave. This means you can use unused sick leaves as vacation leaves. HMO coverage is the best. PEC covered also for dependents.

    Cons

    Work can be boring for those who wants challenging tasks. Bell curve is still used in giving ratings but there is a promise to go away from this.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer III in London, England

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Free lunch. Very relaxed work environment. Nice place to work for over a short period of time. Colleagues are usually very soft-spoken and sociable people. Some of the new product enhancements are exciting and challenging (Unfortunately you must be in the states to be able to work on and be part of these)

    Cons

    It is possible that you could end up in a team where there is not a lot of chance for learning and progressing in your career. Changing teams is practically impossible. FactSet prefers to recruit graduates (at least in the engineering side) which is good in some cases but this is leaving FactSet behind in terms of gaining fresh perspectives and best practices. During my 3 year tenure at FactSet, the graduate to experienced hire ratio is something like 20:1 (or even worse). People usually get promoted based on how long they are in the company. Tech stack is pretty much pre-defined. It is very unlikely that they will be willing to adopt any new and happening technologies.

    I have been working at FactSet

    Pros

    Work life balance, ok pay, free lunch, good people to work with. They are willing to help and teach. Not many politics, laid back.

    Cons

    Stale technology, slow, inefficient, pay is way less than competitors. After a while, you feel yourself falling behind the cutting edge stuff, and you can keep up.
