Interesting work and good people

Vice President (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Markit

ProsMarkit is in some nice growth areas and it is a good place to learn the market.

ConsMarkit is in so many different businesses, it is difficult to have too much focus in one place. No 401k match and use stock options instead. Problem is they vest over five years so no matter when you leave, you will lose a good portion of your options.

Advice to Senior ManagementMatch the 401k and loosen the restrictions on the stock options. Either appreciate the people you have or find people you can appreciate.

Don't Walk... RUN!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Boulder, CO

I worked at Markit


Pros: Big Name Clients - JPMorgan, Schwab, Scottrade, Bloomberg, etc. Cutting Edge Tech -… Cons: Where to begin? Firstly all of the other reviews you've read speaking of a culture of fear, favoritism , and cliques are total understatements.… Advice to Senior Management: Raise the pay, be kinder to your employees, improve your training and replace managers that seem to need replacements… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
