I worked at IMS Health full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good benefits, great work from home policy, friendly people

Cons

-They do not promote lower level employees and hire outside - turned down for 2 positions in favor of outside hires, one of which was a referal who was fired after 2 months
-Not innovative, work on same things over and over
-Poor at hiring: Will say anything to get top notch employees, and than will give them remedial work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within, promote innovation, consider the qualifications of employees before hiring them

    I worked at IMS Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people you work with day to day .

    Cons

    TPG and management. Sr. Mgt scrambles to make every dollar, unfortunately Pharma is not buying. They are trying to put a consulting practice in place by devaluing the data assets and masking the true results with a pretty package and bow. The way they are making money is by cutting the staff to the bone leaving a skeleton crew here in the US. and outsourcing to affiliates in other countries. They actually boost about this to US employees......because you are on the team until you are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are only in this for the money not the advancement of health. Capitolsm is great when everyone shares in the success, reward your US employees up and down the line and you will succeed beyond your dreams.
