    Pros

    Good & intelligent people, flexible work schedule, treated like an adult without micromanagement, compensation with annual stock awards

    Cons

    Numerous acquisitions, which makes for constant change and difficult for processes and systems to align, non-strategic office locations in some major US cities or lack thereof, large company so takes longer to execute initiatives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep paying attention to employee feedback and engagement

    Pros

    Interesting people from diverse areas of research. Fairly good benefits and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Despite all the lip service toward colleague engagement, IHS seems completely driven by the quarterly financials. Salaries are below market, and raises are meager, if at all. The lower tier of analysts is a revolving door of (mostly) smart people who move on when better opportunities come along. Corporate structure changes every quarter and decisions take forever to be made. Also, for all the talk of delivering world class information and insight, analytical capabilities and techniques are often over-promised, out-dated, rely on hand-waving, and in some cases would not stand up to any rigorous external peer review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on quality over quantity and make an effort to retain talent and listen to your employees.
