    Good career growth opportunity from the start, but rather tumultuous management decisions

    I worked at Markit On Demand full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and autonomy is offered to a decent extent, in that there are no rigid rules to follow and thus, there is room to succeed and implement a better way of doing something.
    Smart people to work with and most have a can-do attitude.

    Cons

    Management decisions seem fairly reactionary and short-term. They can even at times come across as flippant with options proposed and then undecided.
    Company is looking to grow and expand globally, but struggles at operating outside of their North American world, as it seems somewhat ingrained and local/closed focus, given the preferred lifestyle in Colorado.

    I worked at Markit On Demand full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable work-life balance; working on weekends happened occasionally but not regularly, maybe 2 or 3 times during my 2 years there. Good coworkers, a lot of talent at the company, and a lot of nice people. Although I didn't go through the program myself, their "Developer University" (DevU) program usually gets high praise from incoming graduates (~90% direct hire rate after graduation IIRC).

    Cons

    Markit makes web pages for large financial companies, and the kinds of web pages those companies buy are about as dry as you would expect. After a while, it feels like you're making the same web page over and over again, just with different branding. Developers are highly siloed by specialty (different teams for front end, SQL, alerts, algorithms, etc) and it doesn't feel like there's much opportunity to move around and try new things. "Moving up the corporate ladder" means becoming incrementally more "manager-y", which some people enjoy but wasn't really my thing.
