    Pros

    This review is specific to the Markit Digital business line in Boulder. Markit Digital has grown from a little business to a part of a multinational corporation. With this transition has come some growing pains, and also some great benefits. Markit has been known as a wonderful place to start a career, and to grow your professional skillsets. There is a great degree of flexibility in how you can shape your... career. Because it is a larger company now, there are several roles, and internal initiatives to give yourself an opportunity to flex new muscles or hone in on the ones you already feel strong with. The charitable initiatives, from giving to service, are absolutely a perk. Markit Digital emphasizes generosity, kindness and compassion within its walls and that extends to the greater community. Being in Boulder is also a huge plus. Not only is the backdrop of Long's Peak a beautiful reminder of where you're located, but the people are genuinely kind and caring.

    Cons

    Markit Digital is a great place to grow, and unfortunately it can sometimes feel like a place that is temporary. There is a lot of proprietary software that can be a challenge to learn. Compensation and benefits are at the lower end of "competitive".

    I worked at IHS Markit full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    One of the friendliest offices you'll ever work in. Fairly interesting project with some really intelligent, and interesting people working on it.

    Cons

    The company as a whole faces typical large company issues. Bureaucracy, red tape, sluggishness, and very little collaboration beyond teams on a specific project. But all these issues exist at the wider corporate level.

    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I've worked for IHS Markit for 15 years in various parts of the business and have been very happy working at the company. There's a corporate but relaxed feeling, a real sense of great endeavour to be the best. The company has fantastic benefits and employees have been granted shares for many years as well as generous bonuses.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability by managers. I've had many well meaning managers but many who are lacking in leadership. Complaints of lack of accountability (via surveys) went nowhere, which was disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Insist on accountability particularly by managers.
