    Cons

    Poor management - Most managers (with certain exceptions) are either inexperienced at managing, do almost nothing on a D2D basis, and have no technical knowledge of the platforms.

    Poor culture - No accountability for issue ownership. Certain teams and employees will barely have a workload yet pass around an issue under their scope like hot potatoes. This is widespread across processing and part of the company culture.

    Politics - Certain employees that have solid technical knowledge, people, and leadership skills who have been around for years will not get promotions or recognition. In contrast, certain employees who have almost no ability to manage or technical skills will be promoted to Director+ because they're focused on playing "the game"

    Lack of accountability and client focus

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of incompetent management, create a culture where employees take ownership of issues.

    I have been working at MarkitSERV full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    I 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.

    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 Management

    Stop 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.


  7. "Innovative, not great pay"

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

    Pros

    Innovative place. Provides a number of outlets to contribute to the bottomline. New products and ideas are welcomed. Good comraderie.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great, so while innovative there's no certainty that windfall flows to you. Sometimes office politics can get in the way of good outcomes. Can be difficult to move to different areas where employee has an ability to shine.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully the pay scale, structure has gotten better. Social atmosphere was good hopefully that has been maintained despite growth and going public.

    Pros

    If your diplomatic and political skills are great then you are gem for this company, if you are not looking to groom yourself technically then this is the best place for you. You will get to work with best donkeys in the industry where you can spoil yourself. You will be surrounded with number of dumb and politically bright people. Your boot licking skills will well recognized here irrespective of your knowledge.

    Cons

    Your technical skills will get rusted over a period of time. worst company to work for, worst management and HR. The US and UK establishments are still better, They call it R&D center but its actually the cost cutting center managed and run by bunch of AH's. The India operations, HR and administration has completely ruined this company's image. There is hell lot of corruption and cost cutting for each and every possible thing for Indian employees, even for tissues and toilet rolls. Don't fall in the trap that they are pay masters, if you have skills then there are numerous better companies who are ready to give you much better pay scales. Don't join this company and regret for the worst mistake of your lifetime later.

    Advice to Management

    Re plan the Indian establishment expansion and completely replace the management and HR/Admin/Administrative roles if you want to change the current worst image of the Company. Start valuing the bright people.
