    Approves of CEO

    I worked at FactSet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The workforce is young and vibrant, so you will work with people you truly get on with. Management structure is also very flat with promotions based on ability rather than age. Additionally, you'll be given very early exposure to some of the most senior people and firms within the Asset Management industry.

    Cons

    There is almost permanently a lack of resources, with headcount being gradually reduced rather than increased, making it tricky to always deliver the highest quality of service.

    Advice to Management

    Keep engaging employees at all levels and make the high level plans transparent and available to everyone. Try not to overextend yourselves with all the acquisitions that have been made.
