    Pros

    One of the best teams I worked with, if not the best. Great development opportunities & Good work-life balance. Flexible working was commonly accepted.

    Cons

    For me the one and only Cons when working for IMS was the long commute (nothing to do with the company).

    I have been working at IMS Health full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You will gain good knowledge about Data and Data Analytics. Good exposure on Healthcare domain. If you are part of IT services, then you will learn how to deal with bad managers and politics ;)

     IMS IT has two wings, IT Services and Product Development, Product Development team has wonderful Head (Director) and he encourages good work-life balance. I was surprised to see his team having Foosball, carrom and other time-off fun activities where as other business units not having.

    Salary is above average to good compared to other companies.

    Cons

    IT services is full of bad politics (remember, Ramesh & Suresh ad by cadburrys 5 star. You will end up dealing with similar people ),. If head is not proper then you can't expect the tail to be good. So reject the offer if it is for IT Services.

    Production support business unit is equally bad and in fact, has more number of people leaving the job.

    People at bangalore are leaving this company in big numbers. Most of the people are quitting because of bad politics and zero personal growth.

    HR team is OKEY and still need to improve making employees happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review Bangalore Leadership team's capabilities. You need to have leaders at top level not managers.
