    Exciting and rewarding place to work

    Current Employee - Assistant Vice President in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Assistant Vice President in New York, NY

    I have been working at Markit full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work, always lots of exciting projects - entrepreneurial and growing fast. Stock options add to compensation...

    Cons

    Pay is about 20% lower than working in a bank or fund in equivalent roles. Hard to rise up in some positions due to senior staff never leaving because of the stock options they were awarded at very low strikes 5-7 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to reward staff who have been in roles less than 2 years and therefore have stock options at high strikes appropriately in order to retain these staff.
