Nice Place to work
Vice President / Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 21, 2015
Much of my day is consumed with writing business requirements, analyzing data, and supporting our service. Hours can be long but that is mostly due to the team I am work on. Most of the company leaves before our team.

EA to CEO,HR of NA,co-Head of Info and Gen Counsel (Current Employee) –  New YorkSeptember 2, 2015
Concerns about other people's accountability for their job description. Executives lacks connection with their staff. Co-workers are amazing and there is always a large turnover of employees.

From concept to start-up...
Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Leominster, MAAugust 11, 2014
It was tough making it work. Early mornings into late nights. It was crazy sometimes. But the work was worth it. Our clients were worth it. And it wasn't easy at all, we learned more from our failures than our successes, and we made life long friends in the process.
Pros
mobility, experience, and growth
Cons
insane hours, insane deadlines, stressful

IMPLEMENTATION SPECIALIST, VICE PRESIDENT (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 11, 2014
Project management is the bulk of what I do so day to day tasks can include working with clients on implementing data, getting them on-boarded with our operations group, training clients on software and communicating with internal departments as well as including other product and/or services within the contracts.

Nice office space, casual Fridays
AVP (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 24, 2012
Has certain perks such as nice office space, casual Fridays and beer Fridays in the summer. Company seems to be continually acquiring smaller companies, however, and as a result the working environment is very siloed/fragmented without much sense of community.

One of the worst working experience
VP (Former Employee) –  New YorkAugust 27, 2012
This is really a bad place to work. The firm doesn't take care of its employees. Comp is low, health benefits bad, no 401K match, vacation time a lot less that other firms... therefore people who work for this firm is typically distressed before joining. The hiring managers usually have to exaggerate on the benefit to make the new employee happy before they join, but soon after an employee figures out the truth, many people feel being cheated and choose to leave. The firm won't appreciate your contribution. I saw several people got fired after they made tremendous contributions in developing new business. When you leave eventually, the firm will try to scare you, threaten you not to work for a competitor (it defines a competition as a firm that has any common business with Markit, therefore basically every financial firm is a competitor), and you will see your managers sneakily or pretending to be friendly asking you "where will you go", or "are you going to work for a bank", or "is your new place close to here? if so, come back sometimes", etc. They just want to find out who you'll work for and putting you into trouble, as they are worried you will bring what you learnt here to your new company. Because of this, everyone keeps it as a secret, and everyone feels uncomfortable when they leave.
Pros
when you cannot find any other job, this is better than nothing.
Cons
poor compensation, high turnover, horrible politics inside, shameless managers like clowns, very limited vacation time...
