    Pros

    highly profitable business model. very attractive/valuable offering.
    nice working environment. always growing and changing.

    go to the next level of knowledge offerings. using AI perhaps. Interacting more with customer to achieve objective knowledge.

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

    Pros

    IHS is an amazing company that is constantly evolving and growing. It has an incredible breadth of products and services in a variety of industries.

    Cons

    The company started changing dramatically once IHS merged with Markit. Two very different cultures that will be interesting to see how they bring them together. My biggest issue was IHS was a growth company and rarely invested enough money back into the business to realize the tremendous opportunities they had in front of them. It was really lacking in senior leadership, but most of those people are gone now since the merger.
