They do care about you, but they're not very cutting edge
Director (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – July 28, 2014
First of all, Markit is a very friendly and caring place to work. That said, their technical prowess is getting a little stale. The processes in place are mostly custom and has a long history, so it is hard for them to change the way they engineer software. Agile is still fairly non-existent here and we use subversion (visual sourcesafe still lingers in a few groups!)
Pay is below industry standard, which is made worse by the fact that Boulder is an expensive town to live in. The company was recently acquired by a larger company based in London, and they are slowly getting more "corporate-minded" and they just IPO'd. This means that getting the simplest requests, like more RAM, takes months. There is also a heavy process regarding performance reviews, and the IT is outsourced.
All in all, an ok place to work, if you can deal with lower pay and frustrating internal support.
Lots a free food, plenty of work, nice people
outdated processes, pay
