    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at IMS Health in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I have attended a interview with IMS Health for (MSBI Developer-SSAS)software engineer designation and had 2 rounds of technical interview & 1 Managerial & 1 HR round.

    Mostly if you could clear the first round of interview then it was pretty simple to clear the rest.

    On Technical skill level, need to be very strong on basics.

    I applied online - interviewed at IMS Health.

    Interview Details

    My first telephone interview lasted less than 20 min. it was with global recruiter calling from US asking a few questions about my experience and what I was looking for. My CV was then forwarded to the local recruiter who call me a few days later, asking almost the same questions. The came the in-person meeting with the hiring manager about a week later. This interview was about my experience and expectations (again) and about me as a person.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at IMS Health in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round face-to-face interview with senior consultants, followed up by phone HR interview, concluded with face-to-face interview with directors and presentation to the rest of the team. Interview process went smoothly but did include several steps whereas I think a one off interview day could have been organized instead.

    Reasons for Declining

    They have a high turnover rate and feared I would be looking for another job in 2 years. Also, the salary on offer was below market average.

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at IMS Health.

    Interview Details

    Long drawn out; the HR rounds were quick and crisp but the operations people took forever to respond and faulted on pre- appointed interview timings multiple times without intimation or regret. The operations people who came for the interview didn't appear like they had specific questions in mind or a structured process; it was all quite random.
