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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Have you seen the reviews here - if there is one low review it will be followed by several FAKE reviews to keep the rating up on glassdoor. I mean how can you give a 5 star review then you are former employee. That does not makes sense if you really love the company and leave. This company is only changing owners but still have the same bunch of crap management. Their only saving grace is that it is part of IBM now. IBM owns Cognos which if you all knew isn't the best reporting tool out there. I do see a lot of hard working people who turn themselves like slaves yet are berated by their leadership if they make one mistake. Gratitude does not exists here since dumb managers thinks you are paid anyway.

    Cons

    below average 401K matching , mediocre benefits
    below average salary increase
    unfair performance review
    buddy system - if you are not in then you are out.
    Below Average Management leadership skills
    Lack of Motivation from leaders

    Advice to Management

    I've been to several companies and this is the only company I've seen where managers or top leaders does not have leadership skills and do not know how to motivate people and its employees. HR , if it actually exists, should do their job to train leaders if they have not had one. They should investigate team with the highest turnover and check the manager who is leading that team. I'm pretty sure, those employees who left have agreed to one point that they cannot tolerate their management or team which is the reason why they left. HR wakeup and do your job and stop posting FAKE reviews !!!
