Pros

Values-led global company that provides growth and opportunity for employees who take advantage of them to improve their careers. Strong leadership with an operating strategy to which the company adheres, which is important so colleagues know what is expected of them. As a global company, plenty of opportunity for employees to gain experience in a variety of international business operations that will enhance your career at the company or with another company.

Cons

If you enjoy a stimulating, rapidly changing and fast-growing environment, this is the place for you. Otherwise it's not. Sometimes you feel there are not enough hours to get your work done, but because the work is stimulating and the scope is broad it often is not a problem. Company manages to a budget that helps drive profitability, but in some instances requires limits to travel that would be helpful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue your efforts to constantly communicate with employees. Focus even more on cultural differences within global operations to make the company as sensitive as possible to the culturs of all the different employees. For example, maybe more translation of internal communications.

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

    Pros

    Great position in healthy industry (energy). Decent salary. OK work life balance. Access to senior staff is easy. Lots of opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Corporate culture was all over the map mainly because of so many acquisitions. There was way too much "us versus them" and not enough "we". Way too much politics. IT support was terrible. HR was weak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on creating a unique culture that's sensitive to range of acquired firms' legacy but that ties the whole together. The politics have to stop!
