    I have been working at IHS full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people are generally good to work with. Working hours are not too excessive.

    Cons

    The management - low quality and lacking in initiative/common sense. The business is obsessed with maximising institutional shareholder value, which translates into aggressive cost-cutting and underinvestment in the frontline products. Too much form-filling and bureaucracy. Pointless and irrelevant training courses masquerading as 'career development'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up or your share options will become worthless.

    I worked at IHS full-time

    Pros

    - you are given a wide responsibilities of tasks and responsibilities that are both quantitative and qualitative, so you gather a lot of job skills quickly.
    - IHS has a wide network of employees and office locations, which is beneficial for projects
    - decent 401K, employee benefits. HR makes a lot of effort to demonstrate career opportunities with IHS

    Cons

    - your experience really depends on what group you are assigned to (and this is typically predetermined).
    - not all of management is competent, and often there are too many layers of unnecessary "management" by folks that were promoted arguably way too quickly.
    - gross discrepancies between detailed job responsibilities (expected) versus tasks you are actually required to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency and communication from corporate with regards to what is happening to the company, changes that occur. Very often the regional offices are uncertain as to what is the standard protocol or practice.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
