Featured Review

Current Employee - Vice President

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Culture of continuous learning and re-invention

Cons

Some processes could be shredded

Advice to Management

Continue to inspire and make a dent in the universe

Current Employee - Consultant

I have been working at FactSet full-time

Pros

FactSet offers very exciting technologies to clients, and offers invaluable experience in a client-facing role. If you’ve just begun a career, I can imagine no better place to receive support in the... financial industry. Great training program, you will basically be getting paid for the first 6 months to learn to communicate effectively and gain industry knowledge. Even though I’m in consulting, I recently had the chance to develop an application with some of FactSet’s APIs in the API-Athon. I felt encouraged to push myself in a positive way. Work life balance is encouraged

Cons

There can be a stigma attached to decisions made by management, but this has improved because management have listened to feedback. Management have less tools to retain valuable employees which can... be a shame, as it has meant that competition were able to poach more successfully.

Advice to Management

No advice, they’re doing great
