    Pros

    This really is a company that is unlike any other - Opportunity abounds if you're in the right areas and can "add value" to the enterprise as a whole. Work/Life balance is exemplary and the total compensation packages are good IF you were hired before the pension was cut off. Stock options are ok but not in the same league that they were a few years ago. They're nice to have but they're not life changers anymore.

    Cons

    Internal politics rule. It doesn't matter how much revenue you make for IHS, if your face doesn't fit with your current boss then you're done in the next lay off round. Unbelievably bad revenue recognition / tracking within the internal process. It's possible to absorb 100% of cost and be credited with 0% revenue when working across the business - this leads to culling people who make a difference while retaining deadwood. After recent events I personally will never attend a mission/values event - We don't live the values that we preach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need more domain expertise.
    Are we an insight company that adds value to data or a data company that sells software to visualize it ?

    Pros

    Pays senior level positions well.

    Cons

    Not a friendly atmosphere. Serious integration problem -- everybody's out for themselves, technology platform is archaic. Teams get siloed easily. Not much career growth or real sponsorship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more receptive and inclusive.
