We encourage a work environment that is both hard working and fun:
As a FactSet Consultant, you'll join a group of enthusiastic professionals committed to maintaining a reputation for industry-leading service.
Consultants work in nearly every FactSet office, all over the world. Most come directly from top-tier technical finance, business, mathematics, or MIS programs, but grads from all majors are encouraged to apply. Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills are vital, as Consultants are constantly building relationships and working closely with our clients.
Consultants are the essential connection between our clients and our employees. Through one-on-one contact with leaders in the financial industry, Consultants form personal relationships with clients and work together to develop innovative ways to streamline research and analysis. Our Consultants do not provide financial advice nor do they perform management consulting functions.
In our friendly yet professional atmosphere, FactSet offers an excellent opportunity to grow and be a part of a successful team. Consulting is the ideal training ground for anyone looking to advance in the organization.
Many consultants have moved to managerial positions within Consulting to other groups like Sales, Product Development, Corporate Communications, and Training. Consultants typically become generalists with broad knowledge of our entire product or specialize in a specific area of our business: investment banking, portfolio analytics, quantitative analysis, fixed income, economic analysis, real-time quotes or news, or data warehousing.
We also encourage Consultants to earn the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) or CMA designation and award bonuses for successfully completing each level.

They work closely with other departments to ensure that FactSet’s products and technologies are responsive to the changing needs of the investment community. Software Engineers design and implement database/applications using various technologies to be integrated within the FactSet product suite and deployed to investment professionals worldwide. A Software Engineer is typically responsible for all phases of development — from architectural implementation to interface design — closely working with product managers and the sales team.
Our management approach is to trust and expect the best. We believe in hands-off management and encourage developers to take initiative to complete projects, manage multiple tasks, and set their own individual day-to-day priorities. We also encourage creativity and innovation, since they benefit FactSet in the long run. In our friendly yet professional atmosphere, FactSet offers an excellent opportunity to grow and be a part of a successful team.
