    Pros

    One of the best teams I worked with, if not the best. Great development opportunities & Good work-life balance. Flexible working was commonly accepted.

    Cons

    For me the one and only Cons when working for IMS was the long commute (nothing to do with the company).

    Pros

    Access to many clients Some talented individuals on the payroll.

    Cons

    Poor management and leadership throughout the organisation. No corporate direction is communicated. Lack of real career opportunities. Organisational silos where self interest is more important than the client or overall business. Poor bonus scheme.Cheap! Bottom line is everything. Unless you are at VP grade you do not matter. No feeling of being part of something special or important.Amazing considering healthcare is the business!

    Advice to Management

    Communicate through the organisation. Make the corporate strategy clear. Restructure and remove the unecessary burden of poor administration systems and uneccessary internal competition at the expense of the client and employees through siloed business units and poorly thoufht out measurement criteria. Invest in effective management and leadership training. Our clients do it!!! Organisational change cannot be achieved via email. Employees are the organisation- remember this in the knowledge age when we are tryi g to deliver insights to clients.
