    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Energetic, open, collaborative, transparent. Everyone I've encountered works hard but is laid back and approachable. The environment is trendy and bright. A nice change! Great diverse culture. Casual attire, game room, nice open atmosphere.

    Cons

    Haven't discovered them yet but will update if I do!

    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for the company for 3 years -- I outgrew one position and was able to seamlessly transfer into a new role that peaked my interest and challenged my skillset. Needless to say, I'm as happy as ever. IHS Markit puts a lot into employees career development and overall wellbeing, which I deeply appreciate. I can honestly say I look forward to going to work in the morning! Fun company culture, too!

    Cons

    Once the position is offered to you, the on-boarding process seems like it takes an eternity.

    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Industry leader, wealth of specialists, interesting work, pretty good culture, global.

    Cons

    New CEO Lance Uggla has lead the company in a noticeably different direction than predecessor Jerry Stead. Investment in career pathing and investment in future assets such as technology are critical, but bonus compensation for well performing business sectors falls short of employee expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Better efforts from middle management to retain human resources. It is not uncommon for subject experts to leave the company due for better opportunities or a more balanced work environment.

    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You're surrounded by extremely smart, agile, and talented colleagues. The office environment is nice and updated. Work is interesting and challenging if you make it.

    Cons

    Clash of cultures still deeply felt 2 years post-merger. Hard to see significant change internally get implemented, despite colleagues efforts and time spent trying to enable such changes. Leadership lacks clear and unified direction.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a team committed to creating a new company culture, cut away managers who aren't making decisions that lead to innovation and efficiency.

    Pros

    great place to work with great benefits.

    Cons

    Too much middle management and it became more about the $$$ than the customer. Also not keeping up with enough quality Tech Support people to keep the customers satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    You need to go back to caring more about the customers than the current $$$. Happy Satisfied customers will spend more $$$ in the long run and carry you into the future with better growth.

    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance, and the work culture is very comfortable. Almost everyone is great to work with. Snacks are pretty good too.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive. Raises / Promotions are only done at year end, and they are hard to get. Some projects are interesting, but many are not all that engaging.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more competitively, hire more experienced devs and fewer junior employees. Try to be more progressive (adapt new technologies, new work cultures, experiment with new things more)
