    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Exposure to high-talent professionals
    - Provides good work experience across industries
    - Open lines of communication with direct bosses
    - Work-life balance and flexible working arrangements
    - Genuine interest in employee feedback

    Cons

    - Salaries have failed to grow in line with market
    - Higher health care premiums and lower benefits
    - Lack of clear career development paths
    - Size of organization makes you feel like just a number
    - Improvement on collaboration but work to be done

    Advice to Management

    I think IHS Markit is on the right track. We’re making long overlooked investments in technology and are seeking to improve collaboration across teams. Leaders are also attempting to improve career development opportunities although the final outcome remains uncertain.

    On the other hand, compensation increases have been unacceptable with base salary increases lagging wage growth elsewhere in the market and bonuses being paltry. I fear that necessary investments in part of the organization may be taking away from the most important investment a company can make: in its people. This needs to be addresses or else people will leave to work with other consultancies.

    Pros

    IHS is teeming with really smart, really insightful people across a whole range of industries.

    Still figuring out how to cross-pollinate and unlock potential across all the company's many capabilities.

    I worked at IHS Markit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance, schedule flexibility, friendly colleagues

    Cons

    Benefits are significantly more expensive and worse than other tech companies and get worse and more expansive each year (e.g they dropped the gym reimbursement for 2019 and insurance premiums continue to skyrocket)

    Compensation seems to be intentionally set well below market rate.

    Advice to Management

    The tech market in Colorado greatly favors the workers. Talent is flocking to companies that better compensate and support their employees. Better keep up.
