    I worked at Markit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It used to be the case that nobody got fired at Markit. Sadly no more since a program of rolling redundancies got set in place. I guess you don't have to work too hard, and the quality of the workspace is good. But oh boy, the job ....

    Cons

    Weak, weak, weak senior management, who encourage subordinates in their own image.
    Safe pairs of hands.
    Absence of quantitative meritorcratic targets.
    Pointlessly acquisitive, companies are 'pieces in the puzzle' who are never really fitted together.
    A cultural unwillingness to accept that poor judgements have been made.
    Sheer quantity of useless internal "meetings" that are permitted.
    Widespread tendency to initiate poorly specified projects with no business case leading to countless initiatives that burn bandwidth, talent and just fizzle out.
    Renumeration is not driven by results - reviews are laughably done at more or less the same time bonuses are awarded.

    Advice to Management

    Create meaningful goals and initiatives. Don't have endless pointless meetings about headcount - empowering smart people will get you a lot further than hiring new people.

    Think before you buy yet another company. Isn't this just a way of avoiding having to think up things for yourselves?

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

    Pros

    Great learning environment if you happen to be put on the right team. Until that team quits that is..

    Cons

    The salary was terrible. I had a 30% raise by quitting Markit.

    Do not ever plan to actually enjoy your vacation. You will get called multiple times no matter what you do to ensure things are taken care of before you leave and no matter how much notice you give that your vacation is coming up.

    Do not plan on being home before 7pm unless you are on one of the few large teams and can get away with it.

    Do not plan on your project managers being competent. Not that they aren't likely competent people in other circumstances but the absurd workload they have makes them borderline useless to you. Be aware that client management skills are a must.
