    I worked at IHS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large stable company with great benefits. Lots of good people work there. Focus on employee (aka colleague) satisfaction/engagement much more than other companies. Positive work environment. Most people keep to normal business hours. Management overall is very good. They spend heavily on infrastructure and think nothing of investing into best of breed solutions particularly those that are capital expenditures.

    Cons

    VERY fast paced global company. Constant change due to responsiveness to customer & stock holder demands. Reorganizations at least annually. After merger with Markit, company headquarters has moved to London, so opportunities in USA offer limited impact. Once hired into a position, its difficult to increase salary much even in the event of promotion or significant skills development without leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a policy to pay at the high end of the market for colleagues to reduce turnover and retain talent. Variance between mid tier and top of the market isn't much in many cases.
