    Pros

    Amazing place to work and really push you to explore new opportunities. Culture is great and the office itself is top of the line, really makes you feel like you're in a silicon valley tech start up with lounges, pool tables, etc....

    Cons

    Salary could be better. Moving around internally isn't the easiest but definitely possible if you do your job well, make a name for yourself and put yourself out there.

    Advice to Management

    Continue placing an emphasis on retaining talent - it's paying off.

    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    IHS Markit is a very dynamic and complex company. It uses data from the services it offers to produce new data products and help leaders understand complex changes in economies, supply logistics, security, politics, etc. Many people who know IHS Markit do not actually know when they are using IHS Markit data, Car Fax, Jane's 360, Indicies, etc. Leadership is hyper focused on balance, diversity and culture.

    Cons

    IHS Markit is growing fast and a global culture is hard to cultivate. Much of the knowledge that is required to be effective at IHS Markit comes from a career of specialization. So many employees have very long tenures.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for interns and college grads in the areas where our most valuable assets have been around for 20+ years.

    I worked at IHS Markit full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    *With headquarters moving to UK, new benefits available like 6 months paid maternity
    *Large global company and most managers are amenable to a flexible work day (flex hours, remote etc)
    *Good benefits package

    Cons

    *Have to pay more for employee share of health insurance than before, but at least multiple options
    *The legacy IHS business seems to be neglected post merger. Many employees being laid off and not replaced, leaving remaining work force to handle an untenable amount of work.
    *Less emphasis on employee retention/satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to customer and employee retention/satisfaction

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

    Pros

    People from other departments are very nice. They will make the job somewhat enjoyable.
    The only events that I was able to attend were pretty fun.

    Cons

    If you feel like being degraded and taken advantage of on a regular basis, please go ahead and accept a job in the research department at IHS Markit. The "managers" on this team are the most incompetent people I have ever worked with. The lack of regard these so-called managers have for their employees is appalling, to the point where I myself had to quit to remove myself from such a toxic environment. Examples of what you can expect while working as a research analyst:
    1. You will have to figure out how to do your job using SharePoint, GOOD LUCK. Be prepared to be treated like an idiot for even asking questions in the first place.
    2. You will be told to pay back the minutes it took you to go to the bathroom during lunch time. No, this is not a joke.
    3. You won't be allowed to attend any event that the company has because you should be at your desk "meeting your monthly goals". Let me tell you, you will never be able to attend any because the amount of work is ridiculous.
    4. You will be expected to work IN the office during snow days or even when a hurricane is passing by, however, don’t worry! The managers will work from home just to be safe.
    I wish I was making all of this up, I really do. Unfortunately, this is just a glimpse of several absurd situations I personally encountered or witnessed while working here. IHS management, not because you've had people working at the same company for X amount of years means they are qualified to occupy leadership positions. Please if you are reading this do yourself a favor and just KEEP looking for a better gig!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of everyone in the research department and start over.
