I worked at IHS full-time for more than a year

Pros

Some very smart people working on some truly amazing things.

Cons

The organization of the company is a bit schizophrenic. They do relatively frequent layoffs to "trim the fat". Not always ready to embrace new technology, which leaves them behind the curve.

    Pros

    Shares allocation for good performance

    Cons

    Too aggressive in acquiring companies and didn't spend enough time & effort to integrate into existing business. Lack of basic infrastructures. No career advancement to senior management for Chinese

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR sucks! They do not honor confidentiality & privacy. Confidential news got spread out by HR and private emails got forwarded to others by HR without the consent of the senders. Time to change the whole HR dpt!

    I have been working at IHS

    Pros

    Intelligent hires and that is all that is good with the company at the moment

    Cons

    Multiethnic hires of bright minds - dominated by middle aged, white middle management. Kind of feels like slave times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The thinly veiled right wing racist approach of the company is being seen for what it is: a shot at global credibility without actually having to be global in its cultural approach on the ground.
