Work environment and employ benifits are good like transport and food.

Dislikes

There is very little scope for growth, appraisal system is not good as it depends on ranking system.Every quarter there are changes in the work system which effects the performance.No value for experienced employees.Even if one meets the target he may stand in the last position when compared as team because the individual is rated on bell curve.So, definitely one will stand last in the bell curve which has a huge impact on growth . Everything is done in numbers.Managers are also concerned about there ranks . Everything depends upon once rank which is very stressful.(problem is there in few processes).

Work

Work is good and easy as per my process but the rating is very stressful as it is ranking system (bell curve). Every single thing depends on ranking which has a huge impact on growth and appraisal.

In factset you will experience work with lots of fun, the working environment will be too good, lots of events and celebration they used to conduct and you will be rewarded for your hard work.
On quarterly / semi-annual basis they used to have promotion and the right candidate used to get the chance to show their talent. On semi-annual basis you will get the hike based on your rating and position.
In this 2 years of tenure I never heard about any kind of termination for employees Factset assure a good security for your job if you are dedicated enough towards your work.

Dislikes

They should provide the on site opportunity to junior employees too, rather than focussing only on higher level managers. Work from home facility is provided only to some designation not to all the employees.

Work

My wok used to be quite interesting as everyday I can learn some or the other good things.

The company is basically looking into providing of financial data to clients.it operations are across the globe. I really love the work liken as a team.especially ingot to know the different presentation of financial statements of different countries.corporate culture and norm's is very fine.

Dislikes

As a fresher candidate the CTC is fine.then it comes to upskill training and growth of individual is low.we can't build a career growth in a less point of time, it's take a time.single process of work so we can't able to get knowledge about others functions.

Work

It's a challenging and different scenarios based work.we need to take quick decision at that point of time.

Good company. Great place to work. You enjoy working here. Great perks. No excess work load. Only challenge is you have to do quality work. I worked as a research analyst at the entry level and enjoyed the work and had a great time working at the company. Good work life balance. Good compensation. Suggestions are given with regards to improve our work. Lot of team meetings.

Dislikes

Timings are the problem. Sometimes we are called late at night. No training provided. Much is dependent on our own knowledge. Lot of pressure with regards to the work. Challenging work environment.

Dislikes

Boring processes, here is less scope to learn so much subjective knowledge to grow up in career. Salary package is also low when we compare the other companies in same industry. Health insurance package limit also low.
Team outings are resticted to few places in city surrowindings only.

Its a great platform for beginners. Lots of new things to learn on a daily basis. If you perform well, the result from the company ends outperforms you. Job secuirty depends on the best you can perform & compete others.The work shifts are too good which helps in maintaining a work life balance.

Dislikes

Irrespective of many good things, the only thing which disappoints is its compensation & hike, which is very low while comparing with its competitor. But the best thing which changes the mind sets is people with whom you work over there.

Work

Its overwheling!!!!

I love how Factset provides a learning environment for the new hires. It gives enough time for you to develope your skills and utilize in a convenient manner. The team leads are flexible and very sociable.

Dislikes

The worst part about Factset is their transport allowance policy and the food that is served at Factset. Both equally suck.

Work

Work is good. Only thing that is boring is the work repetition. If you are in regression. Trust me after 2-4 months you’ll be fed up with the same testing. Automation is interesting

Started my career at Factset.. It's a good platform for fresher's who want to sustain their career. Work balance and environment is pleasant. If work hard, opportunities get better. Company always welcomes the ideas we have for the process improvement. M proud that I worked for Factset. They always have a option of employee rehiring which is very thoughtful of the company towards their employees.

Dislikes

There are times when we had to do overtime but we still get paid for that.. it's not disliking completely just suggestion!

It is a good place to start the career. It gives an excellent opportunity for the freshers. Leave about the package but they provide transportation facility from our places to work spot. I worked for US based the shifts I used to get from 4pm to 1am.

Dislikes

There is nothing much to dislike in the organisation. But worst thing is though it is a MNC politics are played with in the team with the members and the TL. Only thing we need to do is we are not only supposed to work for the organization but also we need to convince the TL also.
