Good place to start your career.
Software Engineer (Current Employee), Boulder, COApril 29, 2014
As a software engineer, this company is a very good place to start your career. You will be exposed to a wide range of technologies, and the culture is very friendly. You will get the chance to ask any question or learn anything you desire.

However the salary is on the lower end compare to other companies in the industry. And the technology they use is some what outdated.

Overall it's a great place for inexperienced people. But you might want to look for more advanced technologies after being here for a few years.

It's not the same company it used to be.
Web Developer (Former Employee), Boulder, COAugust 21, 2013
Typical day at work would be strict typical 9 - 5 job. This is a Microsoft shop, meaning you'll be working in either ASP Classic or C# .NET MVC3 in Visual Studio on a Windows machine.

Pros:
- Fresh coffee machines and free drinks!
- Dev University to give people early field experience.
- You can learn a lot at this company.
- Most people are open minded and listen to your suggestions too.

Cons:
- Very, very tight deadlines.
- Managers prefer code fast'n dirty instead of quality work.
- Very little respect from upper management.
- Project management was terrible, projects would be delayed and then further tighten schedules for other projects.
- Very difficult to grow your job.
- Production deployment system is archaic. You'll be lucky to publish a site to production without a problem let alone on time. Management doesn't think it's important to fix.

Hardest part of the job was working with my manager. Not sure how they got to be a manager with the way they treat their co-workers.

Most enjoyable part was probably getting your work recognized - a rare event.

Great entry into Project Management
Project Manager (Current Employee), Boulder, COJanuary 13, 2013
Pros: relaxed office, snacks, living in one of the great towns in co, challenging, projects are highly visible.
Cons: pretty dull environment if you are a people person.
Markit is a challenging environment and it behooves you to know a thing or two about financial data and web development.

Not knowing either makes it significantly more difficult, but if you pick things up quickly, it is still very possible to find satisfaction here.

Challenging Fast Paced - high quantity of QA work - long hours expected
Sr QA Engineer/Lead/Release Manager (Current Employee), Boulder, CODecember 13, 2012
Pros: great location, nice office
Cons: limited job growth
Non-stop work on the computer. High quantity of work. Some challenges in testing the new product software. Lots of talented people with a heads down, get the job done mentality. Personally, I like being super busy at work, so enjoyed the fast pace. Not much time for socializing so you really have to work at building friendships. Would have liked more team building.
