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

    Pros

    Working in FactSet has its own benefits (talking for a Software Engineer) - Its a great company to start with (Unlimited opportunities / Nice Technologies to work on) - Work From Home. - Work Life Balance (They will make you a type of person who wants to work on time irrespective of what you have been in your past) - Transport facility - Two appraisals per year - Good number of leaves

    Cons

    The one thing which comes in my mind under this topic is compensation. They don't pay you less, but comparing it from market one may feel sometimes. But, to overcome that as well, The senior level management are doing market corrections to change that mentailty of employees as well.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. No deadlines(atleast in my team). you can work from home if required. No particular timings. you can come and go at anytime as long as you complete your work. Half-yearly hikes. Only

    Cons

    No much learning as you will be working only on a single technology mostly. But a pro in it is you can change to another project inside factset when there are openings(require some experience for that).

    Approves of CEO

    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.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing well. Improve travel opportunities to employees
