I have been working at Truven Health Analytics full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Extremely smart coworkers, engaging work, opportunities to work on growth projects, room for upward movement, and flexible time off (but no carry over) and work from home benefits

Cons

Transition to VC ownership has been tough, especially for long term employees that are nostalgic for the "way things were". Two of the biggest impacts of this VC ownership has been the investment in training (technical and interpersonal) is non-existent, and the removal of the innovation culture that allowed for funding or creative and leading edge projects. Staff turnover has been high in recent months, with fewer replacements hired, meaning more work for remaining employees with no compensation boosts to support it. Decisions, even with excellent business cases to support them, can take FOREVER. The office culture is often "Dilbertesque" with nonsensical processes and strange management decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be open and honest about our challenges. Being "cagey" is leading employees to believe that there is writing on the wall regarding our long term future that is not positive.
Return the innovation structure to the organization in order to allow more visibility for small but profitable ideas from your extremely smart employee base.

    I have been working at Truven Health Analytics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great corporate culture - employees are professional, friendly and highly competent. Generous PTO policy. Tuition reimbursement plan. Many opportunities for employees to engage in corporate-sponsored activities.

    Cons

    Relentless focus on customer-facing (revenue generating) issue means infrastructure is being neglected. Hiring freezes in many areas except the executive level. Maintenance budgets get frozen or cut almost every year. Continually being pressured to do more with less. Benefits options are limited and expensive. Executive level seems very disconnected from daily book of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on quarterly revenue as the only goal and rebuild the infrastructure and core services.

    Pros

    The work is very interesting and often cutting edge in terms of healthcare delivery, analysis, policy. Most colleagues are nice and many are very smart. There is opportunity to grow if you are assertive and willing to learn new areas. Flexible hours and ability to telecommute. Good computer and data analytics infrastructure. Competitive salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Complex organization that spans many different types of health care clients. Need to be willing to learn new skills and subject areas. Still developing reputation under new name and ownership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to employees.
