How much crappier is FactSet than CapIQ?HF
Don't debate me on whether or not FactSet is actually worse than Cap IQ -- it is. I just want to know whether it is so much worse that I should not take a job at a firm because I'd have to use FactSet. Cap IQ has much more reliable data, though custom screening is a toss-up between the two. Cap IQ design/layout is much better too.
Here's my question: do I lose any information/functionality with FactSet or it just more difficult to quickly get the info I need on public companies?
