Nice people and atmosphere, but not very organized and too many VPs.

Pros

Most people are nice and the atmosphere is not stuffy. They seem to pay nicely as well.

Cons

Lack of communication as there are multiple offices and projects going on at once. There seems to be an abundance of VPs with every title you could think of.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate about the status of projects with a monthly update. The updates do not need to be lengthy or full of buzzwords, just team a is on project x that will wrap up on this date and sell for z. This way people know how our product line is doing and who to contact on each project if needed.

    I have been working at Truven Health Analytics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some really intelligent and dedicated employees - though this company definitely has employees at both ends of the spectrum.
    Flexible work from home opportunities, depending on who your manager is.
    Casual work environment.
    The work itself is actually interesting and enjoyable (when you're not so busy and stressed that you want to pull your hair out).

    Cons

    Poor pay (below market level) - VERY minimal raises (if any), no bonuses (despite company growth).
    Middle management is a joke. If you want to save money, rather than outsourcing and laying off talented working employees, this is where you can cut costs. Most at this level have inflated salaries and bring nothing beneficial to the table.
    TOO MANY MEETINGS. Seriously, way too many unnecessary meetings.
    Unrealistic revenue goals set by upper management - feels as if this is done on purpose to avoid paying bonuses.
    A lot of outsourcing - inefficient due to variability in work hours, lack of training, language barriers, etc.
    No consistency in promotions - this appears to be a political game. If you're one of the "favored" ones or are an offshore employee, you likely will have a promotion coming your way. If however, you are someone who works hard but lacks connections, plan on staying in the same position for many years. This is also true for new hires... those who are more experienced and a better fit for the job but do not have internal connections are looked over, while inexperienced people with connections are hired.
    Understaffed. So, so, so understaffed. This used to be a great place to work, but people are dropping like flies after the Thomson Reuters sale. It started with layoffs, but there have been many voluntary departures as of late. Doesn't make you feel very optimistic for the company's future. When positions do open up, they are typically not filled due to budget constraints. Though the staff decreases, the workload does not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are overworked and underpaid... plain and simple. Employees need to be treated with respect, and reward needs to be given when reward is due. There is very little incentive to work hard when so many others around you don't. And even if you do, you do not receive any kind of reward for doing so (other than more work thrown at you because you do such a "great job").

    Negative Outlook
