    I have been working at IHS Jane's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There were many pros and now they are all gone, after the company was acquired. Unfortunately, it was not a good fit, but it is too late now.

    Cons

    The company was destroyed by this acquisition and unfortunately our clients are the ones who took the biggest hit in the process. It no longer bears the prestige it once had and many companies and clients beleive we don't exist anymore, due to every effort from IHS to destroy the name, which flourished for 120 years.

    Advice to Management

    IHS, before acquiring new companies, think long and hard whether or not it is mutually beneficial

    I worked at IHS Jane's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the former employees who were there before the IHS takeover still remain, and are to a person charming, genial and informed as to what their job is actually about. They are a dying breed though. Benefits package is good.

    Cons

    Worker morale was the lowest I have ever seen at any company. Yearly employee satisfaction surveys saw something like a 22% contentment rating. No pay rises. No prospects for career progression. Endless stifling performance reviews, appraisals, metric allocations. A management staff who know nothing of journalism and have little desire to learn about it. An HR department that would be a disgrace to the word "incompetent". Just hideous.

    Advice to Management

    Go somewhere else. For the love of god, go somewhere else and ruin a bunch of other people's lives. You are inhuman and sub-human at the same time, how is that possible?

    I worked at IHS Jane's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. Excellent Communication. Interesting Content. Flexibility on how I could do my job which resulted in a lot of work I was very proud of. Got to see advanced technology although it was obviously mainly military stuff.

    Cons

    Salary could've been better but it was officially a junior role and I was happy at the time.
