    I worked at IHS full-time (More than 10 years)


    If IHS has a successful subsidiary that they have merged into their domain, and placed it in a good sector of their organization, it could be a great fit. It is when they have merged a company into their organization and haven't placed it into the right sector where it could be miss-managed.


    The main philosophy behind revenue stream is from subscriptions where projections are easier, any project work that fluctuates greatly does not seem to fit as well.

    Advice to Management

    Service industries primarily work on projects that have expiration dates and major clients can come and go, so flexibility in allowing sectors of the company work within a fluctuating revenue stream is just a different type of entity that doesn't equate well to the more stabilized subscription based business model.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IHS (Boulder, CO) in October 2016.


    Laid back 3 on 1 interview. They give you a lot of background about what the company does as well as where they see themselves. Ask open ended questions and give you room to go into your work in detail.
