Pros

Not micro-managed, flexible schedule, ability to work virtually.

Cons

Poor leadership, unhealthy obsession on sales without considering the implications to delivery.

Advice to Management

Hire early and often. It takes a considerable amount of time to bring people up to speed so by the time you know you need to hire, you're already in a bad situation.

    Pros

    high pay, large company with lots of diverse healthcare data and solutions

    Cons

    ongoing practice of buying lots of small companies and slamming them into the big machine isn't working very well in many areas. While solutions look great at the 30,000 foot level, things get ugly as you drill down to lower levels and uncover the gruesome details. IMS has always been arrogant because they're the 800 lb healthcare data gorilla, but in markets outside of their traditional pharma/biotech deathgrip, they are less known and successful

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to truly partnering with clients in other markets. Stop acting like the king when you have little/no proven success.
