Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Alexandria, VA

I have been working at IHS full-time (more than a year)

Pros

-IHS has acquired dozens of companies and will some day be able to offer a single platform to deliver content from any of its best-in-breed critical information and insight solutions
-Global company, hosts a world sales conference annually to bring sales colleagues together
-Sales incentive trip awarded each year to top performers- usually a week in Hawaii
-Good benefits, stock rewards for improvements on customer satisfaction surveys/hitting sales targets

Cons

-acquisitions take a long time to "melt" into a feeling of truly being "one company"
-trudging through integration of internal processes

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in technology starting with a new ihs.com. Beef up servers for internal systems such as CRM. Beef up sales peoples' laptop performance capabilities so they are not slowing them down.. the extra $50 for RAM is a big help! Invest more into product development to ensure we can stand behind the pricing that we ask for our best-in-breed products.

    - Increased processes in plance that are not necessary
    - Upper management is not open with commnucation about why?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Remove lots of VPS
    - Allign teams based on product portfolio and assign business lead be accountable for managing all kinds of resouces, delivery of products to the market and responsible for the sucess.
    -So called shared PD&D and customer care, sales, product mgt,finanace reporting to different organizations will NOT contribute to sucess as long as there are muliple priorities exists.
