    I have been working at IHS Markit full-time

    Pros

    Free lunches, flexible work, many freebees and perks.

    Cons

    Poor management (both senior and middle), rather stale corporate culture, very slow processes, very political place with not much talent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop growing through acquisitions and focus on building sustainable company culture. Ramp up the senior management, most of the management does not have credentials to lead.

    Pros

    Cons

The sales teams in this company are absolute wizards, some of the best I've seen in my career, however, at times I see that we are struggling for numbers to support what they are selling to clients. As a result of this not only are people working extra long hours to keep up with client demands, we are finding ourselves losing big opportunities due to a lack of numbers....

    Advice to Management

    The opportunity to really grow is there but you must hire more staff, and I do not mean hiring in India to work shifts as it may be "cheaper" but actual staff who can be of help on site in their various offices. Backfill quicker, it's unfair to have staff working the jobs of more than 2 - 3 people your sales teams are brilliant, lack of staff will shackle opportunities as teams will not be able to fulfill what's...
