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

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with that care about our products and services. Flexible work schedule and more emphasis on trying to create a better work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of vision into Truven's future along with poor communication from executive management make it difficult to know what we as a company stand for. This has been a main focus as of late and hoping to see continued improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the backbone of this organization - keep engaging them, focus on our vision and adopt innovation that leads to the right kind of growth.

    Pros

    The work is challenging and rewarding. Great customers. Good products.

    Cons

    Low salaries; 1% annual pay raises the last 5 years in a row; no bonuses the last 3 years in a row. First to Mid Level managers are young and experienced. C Level Management is good and has established a good vision for company success.

    Pros

    Very flexible work environment. Great coworkers. Given a lot of independence and creativity. Some more words here for minimum.

    Cons

    Owners have no long term vision for company, only short term decisions being made. No thought to employee satisfaction and no investment in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Think to the future. More words go here too. Is this at the minimum yet? More words here too.

    Pros

    Good company, weekly internal training session

    Cons

    Did not get basic training long after I was hired, had to ask questions and figure out everything myself, but overall everyone on team is helpful.

    Pros

    An inviting work environment in our office, full of team camaraderie and the feeling that you can be a part of any development project you set your mind to.

    Cons

    Upper management and lower management are not always in sync with the company plans, and the priorities of the business had a tendency to change more frequently than necessary.

    Pros

    This is a very collaborate environment with a lot of positive attitudes

    The organization is growing and needs to determine what it wants to be when it grows up.

    Advice to Management

    Focus. There are too many distractions which prevent the organization from moving forward.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Work arrangements are flexible and go a long way to creating a real work / life balance. PTO is generous and easily scheduled and used.

    Cons

    There is an uneven skill level between teams which makes it difficult to consistently create value across customers and reliably leverage work for multiple customers

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the value we create for each customer and seek to expand that in a meaningful way for that customer. The solution that meets one customer's need may not have any meaning for other customers. Need to foster greater flexibility in designing custom solutions for customers
