Interesting world out there

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at MarkitSERV full-time for more than 3 years

Pros1. Strong product foundation
2. Good bonus structure
3. Laid back atmosphere
4. Product teams are mostly ahead of or at par with the changing industry

ConsHorrible at following processes, a lot of projects get delayed because of this.

High disconnect between different departments. It makes it difficult to assess delivery impacts.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The boys club is at it again

Director (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at MarkitSERV full-time for more than 8 years

ProsVery little if anything is possitive about this company any more. Gone are the days that you felt as if the company really cared about you as a human and not just a number.

ConsThe male managers. MarkitServ has become a company of mostly men in management, these men consistantly belittle any woman that dares have a thought. They continue to take care of each other with nice bonuses while offering little to the women. They provide opportunities for the men, while pushing women aside. I would say if you are a woman looking to work here....don't. You will get nowhere in this organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest to Brad Levey to open your eyes and ears. Talk to the people that are doing the work for you to get an honest feel of what is going on. They are not happy and you are at risk of lawsuits if this isn't corrected.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

One giant mess of a company

Information Technology (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at MarkitSERV full-time for more than 3 years

Pros-Hours are great
-People are generally friendly

Cons- Talent is severely lacking at all levels
- Human Resources is not friendly, not helpful, and at times downright rude.
- Pay is not so great
- Salary increases almost non-existent
- Bonuses are very low if at all offered
- No one is really happy there and it's painfully obvious

Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating people like they're cannon fodder. Don't patronize your employees. Engage with lower level employees and try to connect with them instead of walking around like you could care less. Spread a bit more of the wealth around, we're the ones doing the grunt work so that your stock can go up one quarter of a percent. Hire and retain great employees. From what I've seen you're neither able to hire good talent nor are you able retain the occasional talent that does come in. Fire your entire HR department and bring in real human beings who care about other people.

Good package but no so interesting job

C++ Software Engineer (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at MarkitSERV full-time for more than 3 years

Pros* good working environment
* good package (salary, all the benefits)
* not so stressful

Cons* I was hired as a C++ developer but I almost haven't touched C++ programming at all.
All you end up doing is fixing bugs in proprietary scripting language.
* You won't get any experience in C++

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good work life balance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at MarkitSERV full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat spin off from parent company Markit.
Friendly and respectable colleagues
Product team always seem to be on top of the market changes which keeps the work exciting and portfolio current.
Managers respect your time. This said, expectations are always set high however there is no unwarranted pressure.

ConsCompany now has fair bit of competition in the market.
Some of the projects are a pure drag on the resources without a clear benefit or end in sight.
Office space in NY is not the greatest.
