    Reasonably good benefits (health, dental, vision, 401K)

    Cons

    Potentially long hours
    Serious lack of consistency in upper management/sales decisions
    Serial acquirer

    Advice to Management

    The overall strategy of the organization seems very short term oriented. Must re-focus on employee well being instead of appeasing investor/shareholder interests only.

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

    Pros

    A lot of great people to work with. Clear objectives and lots to learn and do.

    Cons

    Very thick politics and reorgs happen very frequently. Very little diversity. If you are a white male, ready to jump into the politics this is the right company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Consider real diversity not just a few token placements.

    Pros

    Working with great people. Flexible work remote for some employees. Good benefits (healthcare, 401K with matching). Challenging work and assignments. Very dynamic.

    Cons

    Poor bonus/2ndary pay opportunities (RSUs, stock options). Only top tier ranks of employees get any significant RSUs rewards. Growth via acquisition causes some continual churn and disruption.

    Advice to Management

    Extend RSUs, higher bonus potential to lower level employees.

    I worked at IHS full-time

    Pros

    none since IHS is selling to MarkIt

    Cons

    Many of the IHS reviews are LIES and put here by HR.

    Advice to Management

    Many of the reviews that are being givin here are being done by IHS HR. They know the impact that GlassDoor has. As it is, IHS is selling out to Markit. Their Corporate HQ is up for sale and many of the employees know that they will not have a job there.
    Yet, good reviews continue to roll out.
    Total LIES.
