    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".

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at IHS Markit full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance, no more pros.

    Cons

    Managers are lazy and throw all work on analyst/associate, No flat structure as they preach. Some managers are not up to expectation, do not do anything, come in late at 10 or 10.30, takes long lunch break until 2.30pm and go home at 6.30, just like everybody in the team who came early at 9 and had only 1hour lunch break. Senior management do not see underperforming managers and then underperforming managers blame their associates for not reaching their target. this is so obvious to happen as associates are not given any support from their managers and no training is given upon joining the team. HORRIBLE experience. please do not go there. even the pay along with the bonus is petty. plus private equity valuation will not bring you anywhere. The team does not do complex valuation, just simple ones, if it is complex, then there will be just a few guys who will be given the opportunity to work on this.
