Pros

It is a very good introduction into the pharmaceutical industry in terms of how pharmaceutical companies operate and how their data gets processed.

Cons

Some of the downsides to working at IMS Health include the lack of information sharing within various inter-departmental groups. Aside from that, the company does not have many cons and is a very good place to start working for IT individuals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The only feedback I can offer back is to try to work on making resources available to the various groups.

    Pros

    IMS is on a clear growth path beyond its heritage in pharmaceutical information & analytics. There is a long run-way for anyone looking to build their careers in global healthcare information technology & services. Leadership encourages risk-taking and innovation.

    Cons

    Because the company is transforming, there is a lot of change, which can be unsettling for some. Employees need to be highly adaptable.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and smart coworkers who really care about doing a good job. The salary is generous and there is definately room for promotion and to grow (in the right department).

    The pharma knowledge, skills gained and access to data is vast and serves as a huge foot in the door for working in a pharma company.

    Cons

    In the past year or so, data quality has continued to drop and the focus on clients has all but disappeared. Client complaints (and cancellations) are increasing and unfortunately the current senior management are so money-driven that nothing is done.

    Promotion opportunities and the quality of your coworkers often depends on which department you're in. High achievers are often moved to consulting while long-term low achievers end up in production, which creates major issues when the very people that are supposed to maintain data quality don't have the ability or qualifications to do their jobs properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focusing entirely on short term profit won't help much when there are no clients left.
