Pros

- Working with some talented people
- Good work-life balance for me personally
- Commute

Cons

- Employee morale has plunged since the company went private - management has become covert in its strategies and plans for its employees for the future.
-Training opportunities are not the best. In-person training has been substituted with generic, forgettable e-learning
- Limited growth opportunities - there aren't very many new job opportunities at the company (particularly the Parsippany office) and it is rare to here of people getting promotions
- Compensation is below industry standard - the company has taken advantage of the economic climate to strip down to nothing, like someone else has posted as well. Prospective employees should consider that it will take quite a while to get to a more competitive salary.
- Each department/client group is run very differently. Some groups are flexible. Some rigid. It varies quite a bit.
- Seasoned veterans make it difficult for the company to break from its antiquated ways - the company needs new blood and new ideas. Employees that have worked at the company too long may not be able to think outside the walls of IMS
- Stale workload since only higher-level or favored employees are put on new projects

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -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

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Parsippany, NJ

    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.
