I have been working at IMS Health full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very diverse workforce and dedicated, smart, and driven people intereseted in the healthcare space.In terms of sheer size, IMS might not be as big as other management consulting firms, but IMS Consulting Group has a very strong reputation in the pharma/ biotech industry.

Cons

Recently IMS was taken private by a PE firm so a lot of institutionalized bureacracy starts to emerge. Since I just joined the firm (less than 6 months) , I didn't realize the cultural differences, but people who have stayed here longer had some complaints about the bureacracy.

Advice to Management

Build strong brand name and cut down bureacracy

    Pros

    People. The people in my office were great - friendly, helpful, supportive even when the company's higher ups weren't Flexible work arangements

    Cons

    There are very few women in top roles IMS says they are invested in their staff but they don't support training and it's easy to get stuck in a role Career opportunities depend entirely on your manager/department. In some departments there is no growth

    I worked at IMS Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    IMS can be a great place to work if you're interested in pharma and biotech. The consulting arm of the company was predominantly formed through M&A, so each office is highly variable and has its own culture.

    Cons

    The lack of standardization makes it hard to predict how different offices will do things -- the extreme segmentation by office makes the work repetitive within a given office.
