    I worked at IMS Consulting Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good training and communications. Excellent consultancy careers and in sales. Opportunities to travel.

    Cons

    So utterly obsessed with quarterly financial targets that everything tends to be short-term tactical, and never anything very strategic. No real appreciation of technical innovation or vision. CEO's vision statement at the start of 2016 was all about increasing revenue and profits by X% - not very inspiring.

    I have been working at IMS Consulting Group

    Pros

    It is a great place if you are interested in pharma as projects cover pretty much the full commercial spectruum and you have access to a vast amount of data during projects.

    Cons

    The company has relied too much on its data competitive advantage and has failed to produce significant innovation in terms of new services and thought leadership. And if you want to innovate, you may not find a very supportive environment to push your idea forward.
