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

    Pros

    I would say that the benefits are good and probably a good place for a young person to begin a career.

    Cons

    The company is focused on putting funds in to the company and not the employees. There is a high rate of acquisition and a lot lot of talk, but no follow through. In my department there were two "layoffs" in a six month period, but not a large percentage, and probably a lot more fat. There does not appear to be any career path; if you want a job go for it, if you want a career, do not stop by. Also, do not make too many friends because there is a lot of gossip. I am not that confident in their products. I had a fancy title that in no way represented what my job was, and hence one or my concerns that everything is not on the up and up, meaning it is a good way to "present" things not as they are.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a lot of speak about what a great company it is, but I see it as a lot of talk. Communication is extremely poor, and I am not referring to an email that says what new company was acquired or restructuring management. If management was concerned about the employees they would put thought in to their decisions or had a long term plan not a patch. Not sure if it is growing pains, because I would call it poor management. Employees count on management making sound decisions, which provides good support for a company.
