Verispan offers employees to work with with the most robust longitudinal prescription and medical claims patient database available in the industry. The mix of pharmaceutical, bio-tech and government clients always ensure there there is always challenging projects to tackle. Syndicated analytic tools and availability of cleansed raw data also give analysts the ability to quickly address client needs. The company also offers in-house training to employees and clients on the various tools, studies and data available. This helps ensure all employees, no matter their background, speak a common language. The availability to tap into experts in their specific knowledge areas helps employees and clients alike answer business questions quickly and design world-class solutions.
With the recent acquisition of Verispan by Surveillance Data Incorporated (SDI), not enough time has elapsed to offer a fair evaluation of the new company. However while senior management of the new company is competent, motivated and straight-talking, the integration plan being executed seems more motivated by deadlines, rather than common sense.
Advice to Management
While it is important to bring the cultures together of the two previous companies, realistic time lines and deliberate actions must be taken to ensure a smooth transition that is seamless to clients and respectful of the skills set each employee bring to his or her job.

The most awkward interview process. Met with a bunch of people, most of which I didn't work with.
Horrible. There was no negotiating.
