    I have been working at Morningstar full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    Ethical management
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Confused vision from management
    Poor incentives for experienced employees
    Lots of internal politics
    Limited recognition for a job well-done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on hiring college grads and more on making Morningstar a rewarding place for someone to spend his career. Notice high job level dissatisfication among experienced employees and make the changes necessary to keep them onboard.

    I have been working at Morningstar full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits but fair pay

    Cons

    Virtually little to no opportunity for advancement. Heavy emphasis on hiring college graduates with little experience. Majorirty of employees are interested in career development, so you have a lot of people around the same age/experience level looking for advancement with little opportunity. If you happen to become a manager, there are virtually no career progression opportunities afterwards. Also, senior management does nothing to require managers to effectively manage and be accountable for morale Quality, development and productivity standards are inconsistent across groups within the company. Training is weak, conducted through occasional external workshops and there are no standards/measurements/consequences for acceptable management standards. As a result, there are some really ineffective managers on the foor impacting employee morale, productivity and creating ineffective processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what is actually happening in each SBU, listen to the employees and appoint true leaders. A good leader isn't one who is skilled in one area, but is well rounded and has demonstrated success in multiple areas, gaining the respect of both their peers and leadership. Reward those who go over and beyond.
