    According to one millennial worker, “Even the high levels of management make sure that all employees understand the direction the company is moving (through in-person meetings).

     

    The company offers various programs and in-house organizations to help employees increase their knowledge, further their education, or develop new skills (such as Toastmasters for public speaking, in-house course to prepare for CFA exams, etc.).”

     

    “It’s a combination of many factors that makes Factset a great place to work. People are generally pretty happy here because we are doing lots of good development work to redesign and modernize systems. The work is meaningful and challenging. The work environment is very friendly and relaxed. People are willing to spend extra time to help others and get things done. This is a testament to Factset’s recruiting as they have done a good job hiring the right people who fit in values wise with the company. Finally, workers are given a lot of flexibility and responsibility to get their work done. Managers trust their employees to direct their own work with some guidance. When you combine this with the nice benefits Factset has such as free lunch, free drinks and snacks, great health care, good retirement matching, and stock purchase, you will find it’s a very good company to work for,” explains another millennial employee.
