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

    Pros

    Work life balance is good
    Domain knowledge ( only if one is interested)
    good initial salary offered at the time of joining

    Cons

    Limited onsite oppportunities
    Promotions (major cases) to only those who entertain their managers/leads
    Power vests in upper mangement and the employees career is all their play, they are the sole decision makers,if they like you there is no ending to where you can go
    Salary hike to existing employees is less when compared to new hires
    Work recognition is not encouraged

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and realise that there are employees who work hard , encourage them, this will help the company's growth as well as business

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    Well, do not know the higher level... But for me --
    1. It a great place to learn both technical and Domain (Financial) stuff.
    2. It is growing company, not perfect but your opinion is heard and if its fair, Its tried to be implemented.
    3. Good scope if you have good ideas to work on.
    4. Opportunities are given if you are transparent about it.
    5. Flexibility to choose time and no restriction to stay back.

    Cons

    As a silent observer, yes politics is there but do not impact the work unless you are in middle of it ;)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
    Please keep workers opinion even if there are some failures, no one can say Management did not tried.
