      Advice to Management

        Approves of CEO

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

        Pros

        Got a lot opportunities to learn various things. Life and work is pretty balanced. 15 PTO to begin with, 1 day extra after each year. Subsidized lunch Monday-Thursday (usually only pay $0 ~$3 for out of pocket expense). Free health insurance. Discounted Stock purchase plan. 3% 401K match Free lunch

        Cons

        Two self performance reviews a year is kind of annoying while I am really busy on the work. I need to spare sometime to write all the reviews. Besides that, all is well.

        Advice to Management

        Be objective.

        Cons

        Decentralised decision making - decisions and reorganising come down from higher ups in the US After having been there for more than a year or so performance is monitored and assessed quite strictly - they seem to be more interested in extensively rewarding the top 10% and leaving others without much recognition Management can be inflexible and conflicts can escalate quite easily instead of being resolved High attrition...

        Advice to Management

        Consider the impact of attrition - offer better benefits and salaries/bonuses to mid tenure employees
