Analyst Interview

Analyst
Collegeville, PA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at IMS Health in April 2014.

Interview Details – I was a recent college grad when I started applying to IMS. I started by interviewing around March/April then I graduated from college in May and had a job offer before I graduated! I applied to many positions with the company, however due to the large quanitities of resume's they receive it took awhile to hear back for some of the positions. Once they did call it was more waiting game, however I was constantly in contact with one of the recruiters who helped me out and answered any/all of my emails/questions. The process for analyst, consultant, EM, ect is as follows: Phone screening with HR followed by an in person interview consisting of a 45 minute evaluation of a case study, 3 one on one interviews and finally presentation of my case study to the panel of interviewers. On a different positions interview for an analyst position I was asked to perform a few basic excel functions such as pivot tables, filtering, etc infront of a panel of interviewers. After this I was brought in 2 more times to meet other people on the team (it took 2 times because I had to meet with everyone on the team and some were on vacation the first time I was in) This was the position I accepted and I could not be happier! The interview process may be hard and at times frustrating with the waiting, however I have a great salary, great benefits, wonderful team, and am very happy with IMS!!

Interview Question – 1 case study I was asked to evaluate was on an oral cancer drug where I was to evaluate the market place, competition, projected sales, projected market size, etc. Then I was to present all of my findings to the panel that I had previously in the day interview with seperately.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – If I wanted to wait longer for my offer then I could have negotiated, however I was very happy with my offer and felt no need to negotiate my salary. Benefits are non-negotiable.

Junior Consultant Interview

Junior Consultant
São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IMS Health in July 2010.

Interview Details – IMS Health contacted me and the entire process was really fast (around two weeks). I made some tests (whiting skills, foreigner language conversation and logic). After I passed the tests I had an interview with the responsible for Human Resources and after that (same week) with the Director of the area that I would work for. The interviews were really good, and I was all the time treated with respect and professionalism but in a relaxed and cool environment.

Interview Question – It was really interesting that they were really interested to meet me as a person, not only as a professional. They asked about my personal life and interests and I found this really important. A good professional is great to work with, but it is even better to admire your managers and colleagues as amazing people.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It took only one day to decide everything, They had already the average salary stipulated and I knew that that was a decent number for a consulting company and for somebody that just graduated from college.

IT Manager Interview

IT Manager
Bangalore (India)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at IMS Health.

Interview Details – Long drawn out; the HR rounds were quick and crisp but the operations people took forever to respond and faulted on pre- appointed interview timings multiple times without intimation or regret. The operations people who came for the interview didn't appear like they had specific questions in mind or a structured process; it was all quite random.
