I worked at IHS full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

IHS has a very clear strategy for growth and planned to target and build up its penetration of those markets it sees as showing long term sustainable growth. It has now (2013) successfully done what it set out to do in 2004 in quietly building expertise by buying carefully in the designated sectors and in integrating its teams and its software platforms. If you have the expertise they need then the next 3 years till 2016 sghould give you great potential to grow with the company globally.

Cons

Thiink hard before joining if your expertise is in software development as their existing team on that will probably shrink now that the basic tools have been built..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Behave yourselves with the ethics you encourage upon employees

    Pros

    Successful, well known and highly regarded in it's covered sectors, IHS is one of the largest global information & research companies.

    Cons

    As growth is driven mainly through continual acquisitions the company is forever integrating new components. On the downside this creates a lot of bureaucracy - there's a huge HR function and lots of middle management.
