    Pros

    Learned/Knowledgeable peers at other locations.

    Senior Management want to keep the firm entrepreneurial and more decision making is happening at the product level.

    Cons

    Local Management will engage everyone in lot of unnecessary stuff which will bring no benefits to anyone than letting people product/client aligned.

    Local Management is control freak and will add unnecessary layers of promotion reviews (will go to an extent to do politics influencing people and bringing numbers as low as possible) , approvals etc.

    Hypocrisy is clearly visible in actions, no heed would be given to employees concern even if genuine but all efforts would be made to keep senior management as happy as possible while they are visiting India.

    Local Managers has little control on anything (even deciding comp of their reporting line) as they are either controlled by onsite counterparts or Local Management.

    Advice to Management

    Please get into the real reasons of high turnover in India. You have smart people leaving Markit because of more local issues than anything else. Please make local management understand Markit's business principles and they live those in their day to day actions.
