Former Employee - Clinical Content Specialist in Denver, CO
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Truven Health Analytics full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits, opportunities to interact with well-educated colleagues.

Cons

Senior corporate management is tied up with setting up the new company structure. Local upper management struggling to keep the balance sheets looking good. Old fashioned, ineffective management practices continue from the Thomson era. Employees waiting for the shoe to drop with the new owners. Middle management does not value its professional staff employees (e.g., MDs, PharmDs, RNs).

Advice to Management

Bring in some fresh talent with 21st century management skills AND an actual understanding of the current US healthcare market. Lose the silo mentality, look for creating new opportunities with your existing assets (people, processes & products).

    Approves of CEO

    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.
