    I have been working at IHS full-time (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

    Pay and benefits are in line with market, or a little above. Generally nice people to work with, outside of management.

    Cons

    Management is a mess -- they project smiles but it's well known it's open warfare among the senior management team as they position themselves. Middle managers are terrible -- they do nothing but protect their paychecks at the expense of everyone in their departments. I've seen horrible treatment of good people who were doing good work. Be prepared to be in early, stay late and always be available, no matter what your position or situation, and don't expect to be thanked for the extra effort, because there is no work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have too many layers of management for such a medium sized company, and they are not serving your employees well. It's a keep your head down mentality for most employees, who could and want to do better.
