    Pros

    IHS has a unique value proposition in our market place. The combination of data products across four domains offers clients one-stop shopping that can't be found elsewhere.

    Cons

    Just as at most corporations, the decision making process can be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Great environment, very relaxed and there's a lot of interaction amongst colleagues
    Good work/life balance
    Hours are not too bad

    Little opportunity for moving upward. The company is not very large, so they are not looking to expand and promote their analysts

    IHS management was great. I learned a lot from working here.

    Pros

    *Because IHS is such a highly acquisitve company, the pace is very fast. In a good way!
    *The executives are all extremely cordial and welcome feedback
    *Great work/life balance
    *The synergy amongst employees is the best I've seen at any company because everyone holds "stock" in the company and wants to contribute to it's success

    Cons

    *Lack of office space - but at the growth rate, can you blame 'em!
    *Honestly, no other complaints!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You have a lot of colleagues who respect and trust your judgment and can't wait to see what the future holds for IHS!

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

    Pros

    The benefits are top notch, including a new one this year: paid volunteer time off.
    The company seems very stable with a good future of growth.
    Developers are empowered to contribute significantly to both the products and the process.

    Cons

    Growth through acquisition has resulted in some confusion about vision and direction, especially in management.
    IT does not seem to handle issues with the right priority/urgency, but this is a common problem at most companies.
    Company seems unreasonably hesitant to make necessary hardware/software investments at times.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate some of the management positions - there seem to be too many layers. Open up more 401k investment options (ETFs anyone?). Switch from E*Trade for the stock plan to any other broker.
