Software Engineer in Liverpool Street Station, Greater London
on 20 January 2018
Friendly workplace with some bad development practices.
The company has a relaxed work environment for software engineers and allows it's workers to pursue a healthy work life balance. The managers and other employees are generally amicable. Working hours are fairly flexible and people can work from home when they need to. Apart from some notable exceptions much of the company operates with a poor development philosophy with very little emphasis on testing, documentation or QA. There seems to be more pressure to get stuff released then to get it released properly. In the long run this reduces stability and productivity. I think this is down to poor management and the way in which people given recognition. Another issue with FactSet is the way it handles on call duties. It requires members of staff to be on call and available to deal with any problems with out any additional remuneration. Time off in lieu is often given on an informal basis but given the relatively meagre salary compared to competitors I don't think this is enough. Having to respond to an emergency over a bank holiday visiting family is not equal to a single day off in the week.

No progression unless you suckup to management
I learnt how to interacts with key stakeholders and the companies bespoke programming languages. The most enjoyable part of the job was your peers and interacting with clients. The hardest part of the job was dealing with management and internal politics.
