    I have been working at Markit full-time

    Pros

    very progressive and collaborative environment; senior management ensures that the Dallas office really invests in their employeees

    Cons

    HR policies passed down from corporate have created more regulatory barriers for corporate title promotions internally rather than being based solely on performance

    Advice to Management

    continue cultivating the dynamic and collaborative corporate culture in the Dallas office; make sure that associates know you value them and continue investing resources in them

    I worked at Markit as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good intern program overall. Friendly and busy working environment. Provides many training sessions including lectures on business skills, the company's products and managers experience sharing talks

    Cons

    I have a good impression of the company overall. I couldn't remember any cons about my experience a summer intern.

    Advice to Management

    The computers and network I uses were pretty slow. Definitely upgrade the hardware.

    I have been working at Markit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great place to work, as a self motivated developer who really wants to push their skills. There is a lot of opportunity to work with some of the brightest developers and engineers in the area.

    Cons

    The company is enduring a lot of change, as they strive to improve how we work and deliver for our customers. If you're the type who looks for opportunities in a time a change, you'll do well. If change is scary, it may be a little scary.

    Advice to Management

    Bringing in too much business, too quickly, creates challenges that are difficult for teams meet. Slow down, support the teams who are trying to deliver their best work.

    I have been working at Markit as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cool office/atmosphere, catered lunch Mon-Thurs, casual (almost no) dress code for the Dallas office, friendly people, engaged intern program

    Cons

    mundane work, sometimes there's really no work to do so you have to try and find something to look engaged.

    Advice to Management

    More Markit-sponsored activities specifically directed towards interns (help us get to know each other better and hang out at work a little more)

    Pros

    Upper management is great, the executives seem very clued in as well. Very employee friendly with benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Middle management can be very hit or miss depending on what group you're in.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your entry level (or near entry level) employees. Salary seems below average compared to market and often times advancement (depending on group) can be slow and laborious with the hit-or-miss middle management.

    My job has changed a lot
