Good place to work, offers good benefits
Systems Operator (Current Employee), Norwalk, CTAugust 22, 2012
Pros: free lunches, good benefits
My typical day at Factset consists of troubleshooting client connectivity issues over the help desk line. I've learned alot when it comes to technology and pleasing the customer. Management in general is good and they care about their employees. My co-workers are all team oriented and we all have the common goal in mind, which is to ensure customer – more... satisfaction. The hardest part of my job would be the physical demands placed on me away from my desk. The most enjoyable part of my job is when a client is satisfied with my troubleshooting steps to get them working again. – less

Good place to work - Friendly people
Consultant (Former Employee), Boston, MAMarch 20, 2012
Pros: free lunches
Cons: with free lunches comes no lunch break
FactSet is a great place to work as a Consultant if you are interested in Investment Management or Investment Banking. Be aware that the first 6 months are spent on the support desk where you are essentially customer service for all their clients. The job requires someone to be technical savvy and good with excel. If you are good with computers and – more... are okay with troubleshooting computer based problems then you should consider this position. – less
