    Pros

    From my first day Interviewing with IMS to my first day on the job, I felt welcomed and felt like I was really part of the family. The atmosphere is very accepting and laid back, while still very career driven and work focused. Everyone is very good at what they do and are willing to teach you to make sure you understand/ feel comfortable with your position. There are many opportunites for advancement as well as opportunites for learning growth. You can find people who have worked here their entire career, with people here for about 40+ years. Their client offerings are innovative and exceptional. They are one of the biggest players in the healthcare data field and they deserve all the praise they recieve. Wonderful place to work. Highly reccommend.

    Cons

    There is a bit of disorganization sometimes in respects to the building assignments for departments, however they offer so much opportunity for working from home it balances out.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a location!! You cannot just keep moving people all around.

    Pros

    Engaging work and interesting projects; very smart colleagues who have a willingness to help each other; strong upside within this particular industry; excellent opportunity to work remotely; one of the few companies that still offers a pension PLUS a 401(K) to employees.

    Cons

    Now that the company is publicly traded - it needs to implement a long-term stock incentive (LTI) initiative. There has not been any communication in this regard and it needs to be.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and implement an employee LTI plan as soon as possible.

    Pros

    Great work culture, understanding and supporting colleagues, no pressure if you are good at your work, a big company with global presence allows many opportunities to explore different areas, if intended

    Cons

    Meager bonus, if you are unlucky then you might get a bad manager who doesn't care about your career but that really can't be blamed on your company, it could happen anywhere

    Advice to Management

    Occasionally Principals and DIrectors get busy with business development only, and Consultants and Analysts have to carry the heavy project workload. Senior management, please make sure that there is equal work sharing.
