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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

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

    Pros

    friendly people (people gossip a lot though); good work environment (depending on your manager, flexible/remote work hours) ; you are paid money.

    Cons

    Oh where do i begin...the management goes out of their way to let you know they dont care about you (Example: you will be expected to work during a hurricane. ); overtime is expected; absolutely no path for advancement -none; you'll have to apply for a senior analyst position to be see any movement in your career. No proper training is given to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings that they are. Train and invest in us.
