I worked at Truven Health Analytics as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Truven is a well run buerocrasy. They expect you do your best but provide excellent life / work balance. There are lots of company functions and events as well. I initially expected to work more throughout the day, but with all the processes to go through or wait on ech day was very relaxed and zero pressure. I heard thier benefits packages where quite nice for direct hires hires

Cons

I would say they are bloated. There are so many different projects going on and they keep buying more. I had heard they were consolidating team and the less experienced where being laid off however. The development teams here build the project and the maintenance is all shipped overseas.

Advice to Management

People in contracts are forgotten about, often not being renewed till after the contract has expired, then there is a mad rush to fix it last minute.

    I have been working at Truven Health Analytics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Professional culture. Focused on the right things. Good benefits. People don't seem to be distracted and gossiping...they are actually working 99% of the time. Very little tolerance for negative employees that stand around complaining to others...that is not part of the culture. There isn't much to complain about...so complainers aren't taken seriously.

    Cons

    Raises are tightly managed and capped. Health data management...not great party conversation.

    Advice to Management

    Reward high productivity more flexibly. People the put in "just enough" effort seem to get only slightly lower raises than those that are striving to excel. Senior Management seems isolated...most people never interact with, or even see, those at the top.

    I worked at Truven Health Analytics full-time

    Pros

    The data people know what they are doing and are extremely great to work with

    Cons

    The business side of the house is not focused so much on helping as in up-selling

    Advice to Management

    Take time to understand the products and the people involved with them
