I worked at Markit full-time (More than a year)

Pros

good work life balance good bonuses

Cons

management are clueless and do things that cater to an eventual IPO micro managed environment pay structured skewed because of all acquisitions teams dont interact that well because everyone came from another acquisition

Advice to Management

this isnt a bulge bracket bank, its a data vendor- act accordingly

    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 Management

    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.


  2. Intern
