Mission: To reveal meaningful insights and identify unseen opportunities in healthcare so that our customers realize tangible value.
I have been working at Truven Health Analytics full-time (More than 5 years)
Good work-life balance. Good people who care about healthcare. You can easily avoid getting stuck on high-stress, high-overtime projects or get reassigned without much penalty to your career.
Bureaucratic. Way too many managers and not enough workers. Heavily reliant on contractors. Merit increases are always around the 2% level regardless of the outcome of annual evaluations. Bonuses are negligible. Ambitious people who take on more responsibility and high-profile projects tend to get blamed and criticized more. They eventually leave the company.
Advice to Management
You are IBM now. Assimilate. You have nothing to lose.
A recruiter from Truven contacted me to discuss open positions at the company and we set up a time later in the week for a phone screen. The time came and went and I never got a call. I emailed the recruiter and never got a response. A few weeks later I see a bunch of job postings on LinkedIn and wouldn't you know that the recruiter who couldn't bother to contact me was the one who made the postings. I imagine they did me a favor because if they'll act this rude before even speaking to someone then I can't imagine how they treat people further along in the process.
