    Pros

    Great perks
    Get all of your PTO beginning of the year
    Free food

    Low pay
    Hard to get recognized for your hard work

    As some employees are underpaid, I would recommend giving all employees respect in order to not lose great talent

    Pros

    - Good work life balance
    - Free bus pass
    - Gym subsidy

    Cons

    - No company culture
    - No opportunities for career growth
    - No formal training exists for new employees - dependent on your manager so the quality and content of training is highly variable
    - Constant changes and reorganization are detrimental to overall company productivity
    - Changes are implemented across company with no execution plan and little communication top down - sometimes management doesn't even seem to know what decisions are being made
    - No employee training is offered
    - Pay is below industry standards

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in your employees. The more you invest in your current employees, the more they invest in you, and a stronger company culture is created.

    I have been working at Markit On Demand (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The working environment is fantastic, everyone here is very friendly and willing to share their knowledge with a smile. The company offers many training classes you can sign up for. The dress code is very relaxed, just dress like an adult. Markit expects a lot of work out of you and you will work long hours but Markit takes really good care of their employees.

    Cons

    The largest complaint I had, yes I am using past tense as it has been fixed, is that Markit is a global company and my manager was over sea's. This caused many issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep management local.

    Pros

    You will learn a lot if you are not well versed in the technology world, great first step company.

    Cons

    The siloing of teams causes frustration and would be great if teams where more focused on the project team rather than the silo team.

    Provides Great benefits. Engineering processes are matured and well documented.

    Cons

    There is Limited opportunity to advance. Little incentive to keep tenured employees. Slow in adapting automated testing solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Provide incentives to retain tenured employees. Adopt new approaches to automated testing of products

    Pros

    This is a challenging place to work and there are many ways to make an impact. Learning, mentoring, and mobility within the company are encouraged. The parent company is growing in an industry that's ripe with potential.

    Cons

    Always seem to be transitioning, and while perks and pleasantries may come and and go, there is one thing that will never take the backseat, this quarter's profit.

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

    Pros

    There is a lot of latitude given to all developers. As long as the web application is .NET, how you go about building it is up to you and your lead. The custom tooling is also wonderful and in-depth. Cross team communication is very good.

    Cons

    New hires are very junior and don't often bring new ideas with churn. The old developers used to be innovators but without that influx of ideas, the rate of innovation is exceptionally slow. Especially since the browser requirements of banks is in the stone age, if you want to use a technology developed in the past five years, it has to be backwards compatible.

    The pay is also very low.
