I have been working at Morningstar as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Great company culture, flexible schedule, lots of employee training, friendly co-workers, promotion opportunity is there if you want, great communication between team members and with team leaders. GREAT BRAND in Chicago!

Cons

Job actually does not require much analytic skills. It's almost always checking data accuracy and filling the database. Project manager or Team Lead may have some high-level smart thinking. But as data analyst, you tackle with non-technical and non-analytic jobs which easily get you boring and losing you spirit. BTW, sometime, you need to work 9 or 10 hours a day!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make more connection among different units such as data team, research team and IT solution team. Some analyst may have enough background digging into research or programming projects. They can work more closely.

    Change is challenging, but what's exciting without change?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to high turn-over rate and improve rewarding strategy across the whole company. You have a bunch of smart and hard-working folks, but treating them equally like others will not help you keep people.
