Could have been better

Associate Consultant (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at IMS Health full-time for more than 3 years

ProsOne of the best names in the industry to work with. Has got immense data resources. Lot of learning opportunities, but you'll have to search for them.

ConsVery limited scope for Financial Growth. Luck plays a major role here than your performance, when it comes to making more money. Lot of ambiguity exists because of the absence of a standard policy framework with respect to compensation and roles.Certainly not an employer which provides the best in market compensation, even when it could if you look at the Financials

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease look around at other companies to know how a good talent is rewarded in a fair way

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Worst experience of my life

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at IMS Health full-time for less than a year

ProsI am working with IMS Health from last 4 months. It is worst exp. of my life. People who know kissing ass, want to be servant, follow what ever your manage say then only you can work.

IMS is having really good name in pharma company but they have started their development center in Bangalore from last 3 years only. They have hired in bulk and didn't choose proper management while hiring.

There are people who don't know basic and posted to higher position.

There's no chance about career growth here. Before joining IMS, you should know about the company what they are doing. They are collecting data from different places and selling it in terms of report. It's pure data company.

I am seeing every month around 10 people are resigning company immediately after joining. Who are just worrying about money they are staying here.

ConsCompany is setuping their development center in Bangalore so you will find good hike while joining.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease check all the places and clean bad and poor management so atleast people can work with your company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
