    Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Benefits not so great. Cheapening day by day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cheapen on things like insurance please. Instead of spending so much on the new building which is a nice to have, provide good benefits.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at FactSet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    HQ location is ideal for employees with families as an alternative to commute to NYC. It has somewhat affordable housing market within 20 miles radius (< 1 hour rush-hour commute). It has good work/life balance without pressing deadlines, so need to consider this no-overtime when comparing benefits. Working with latest technologies and moving toward modern software architecture at a fast pace allows to make a... difference and learn something new and relevant at work. Flexible schedule, allowing working from home or shifting office hours to avoid rush hour commute.

    Cons

    Benefits are maybe not as great as at some big name west coast IT companies, but are still pretty good, although they started shrinking (health insurance, office space, parking, etc.), as the company invests more to technology stack and more money goes to cloud service providers.

    Advice to Management

    Better retain top talent.
