IHS Markit

From Everything.Sucks

IHS Markit Ltd is a London–based global information provider formed in 2016 with the merger of IHS Inc. and Markit Ltd.Some parts of this company are pre-1800.

A former employee said, "What a waste of time. In my first week at IHS Markit I knew I was not going to succeed. There is no inclusivity, people are very cliquey, everyone does the bare minimum. Its not a youthful energetic group of people. There is no sense of team work or fulfillment. If you are ok with sitting at a desk all day with nothing but 2-3 tasks, then this is the place for you. If you aren't interested in growing and learning and are ok with covering reception when receptionist don't feel like it, then this is the place for you."


Former Employee - Research Analyst says "- Poor management - Low salary - Lacks growth opportunities - Not real finance - outside looking in - Tedious repetitive work - Poor training"
BDM (Former Employee) says "Company has great opportunities however, you have to be in the click, if you're not you won't get promoted. The CEO is very short but HR isn't the best."
Former Employee - Research Associate says "Overly competitive and not female friendly"
Manager (Former Employee) says "Like coaching? You're not likely to get it. Value communication? I hope you like it last minute. Enjoy surprises in your review? Well, then you'll love this place. Do you like embarking on an unknown direction? Buckle up. Leadership that knows how to lead? Maybe by antiquated methods. Feel like you're part of a team that cares about you? Umm... If you're looking in Raleigh, you can do better."
Former Employee - Research Associate says "Comp is terrible, middle management is mostly abhorrent, the division is incredibly overworked, and the company is losing talent in spades because they refuse to pay anything other than wildly below market. The broader corporate structure post-acquisition (Ipreo to IHS Markit) seems to be slightly better but the unit specific leadership, and more importantly, team-specific leadership, cultivates a toxic-level culture of "client first, no matter the hours/lift/burden.""
Associate, Portfolio Valuations (Former Employee) says "New York Office is great, Toronto Office is terrible. i got to good amount of exposure to related field, but the management and my manager were terrible.NothingEverything"
Current Employee - Sales Representative says "HIGHLY unorganized is an understatement. IHS has never heard of Sales Operations - it's every man for themselves. In Sales, you do it all - you sell, follow up on unpaid invoices, generate your own quotes and proposals, search endless databases for pricing, cull through outdated websites for product information, and lots of time, act as your own Customer Support. If you are in Sales, you should only expect spent 40% of your time selling. Sales Assistants are forbidden to help in the Sales process, and Upper Management doesn't know enough about Energy to help. Sales is required to input 20 calls per day in Sales Force, but then Management wants to see it all on a separate spreadsheet. The ENTIRE Energy Marketing team has been laid off. SVP's of Energy only concern is to generate more frequent flyer miles for themselves. IHS was a well oiled machine until Markit started picking the Energy Sales leaders - it's been all downhill since - and the revenue shows this. All the experienced Sales Associates have been laid off or are taking early retirement."
Associate (Current Employee) says "Don't waste your time, bad bonus + salary does not increase. Regretted joining the company, it is going downhill after the merger. Your efforts will not be appreciated."
