This is a company that operates a facade. They try to appear as a company that is providing fintech services for investors with its market data offerings and morningstar direct platform. However, the culture within the London office is one of division. Pitchbook(the recent acquisition) sit on the lower floor with the other departments in other levels of the london office. The teams never collaborate and the toxicity of senior management leads to frequent reviews which do not seek to help you to improve within your jobs.
They then try to mask the poor management with useless employee perks such as free breakfast on wednesdays and free coke.
A good place to work. Very flexible in terms of working hours, working from home etc. Good atmosphere, supportive management regarding the opportunity to develop their employees (via internal training or professional certificates such as the CFA).
