I have been working at QuintilesIMS full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very diverse workforce and dedicated, smart, and driven people intereseted in the healthcare space.In terms of sheer size, IMS might not be as big as other management consulting firms, but IMS Consulting Group has a very strong reputation in the pharma/ biotech industry.

Cons

Recently IMS was taken private by a PE firm so a lot of institutionalized bureacracy starts to emerge. Since I just joined the firm (less than 6 months) , I didn't realize the cultural differences, but people who have stayed here longer had some complaints about the bureacracy.

Advice to Management

Build strong brand name and cut down bureacracy

    I worked at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good experience and benefits. Learned a lot about the industry

    Cons

    Heavy workload. Assigned work is manageable but the volume of work is not. The company is constantly evolving but there is no time to learn what is going on in other departments.

    I worked at QuintilesIMS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    IMS can be a great place to work if you're interested in pharma and biotech. The consulting arm of the company was predominantly formed through M&A, so each office is highly variable and has its own culture.

    Cons

    The lack of standardization makes it hard to predict how different offices will do things -- the extreme segmentation by office makes the work repetitive within a given office.
