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

    Pros

    My colleagues are intelligent, motivated, and care deeply about improving the quality of healthcare in the United States. If you enjoy a fast-paced environment with meaningful work, you'll be happy at Truven Health. Flexible hours and ability to work from home are good benefits and the company is very family friendly. We have a generous paid leave policy - even for new employees.

    Cons

    The company is transforming from a product focused business to one that leads with consulting and custom solutions. Our legacy products are valuable, but not as valuable as the talented and dedicated staff. Senior management is still working on the best approach for positive change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to invest more in our employees - create stronger career paths, promote from within, and reward the high performers. Total compensation is good, but it could and should be better considering the caliber of our staff.

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance if one prioritizes and communicates issues facing him/her well.
    most in management are approachable and understand employees.
    empathetic and supportive colleagues
    Very little nonsense talk and idle chatter
    Hard work is recognized ; handled offshore well in some parts of the business
    Recent big customer loss was dealt with honestly and communicated openly

    Cons

    Below average compensation and benefits
    Poor raises due to financial status of new company - this will improve with time and with more innovative and high performing solutions in all business segments
    Lack of bullish investment plans again due to debt to be paid off - things will get better hopefully
    Leadership is stagnant - need more diversity in senior ranks. Too many white and older men running the show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some youth to senior management, promote from within, listen to smart folks inside and not just outside consultants, communicate openly and frequently - don't treat employees as kids - we can handle the truth, those that cannot will leave - so what? Keeping them does not help anyway. fix HR and training and invest in new managers. Encourage new ideas and respond to employee suggestions. Don't avoid them.

    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.

    Great pay, plenty of job opportunities to move around the company (not necessarily within same dept.), decent people, various age groups and backgrounds, flex schedule in most departments and ability to work from home if needed.

    Department rules vary, there is not one standard which affects moral of some teams.

    I have been working at Truven Health Analytics full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great compensation (holidays and salary); their focus on training (including free pizza Mondays!) emphasizes the importance they place on their employees; top-grade IT; friendly/open/caring with excellent HRC scores [!]; excellent recognition (I worked for decades in a job and received less recognition than I did at Truven in my first year); approachable management that understands what I actually do [!].

    Cons

    Fluid work schedule (e.g. lots of time off/work at home options) means communication between teams may suffer-- you learn to work with it; cafe is frightening; learning curve can be daunting when coming from the outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue listening to new ideas and promoting from within.
