We made the move to BSI now a decade (or more?) ago and it is SUCH a relief to know that any and all questions about our collections can be answered in the main with the click of a keyboard.

I enjoy crash courses and this one was exceptionally thorough and clear. The commitment of presenters to ensure entire class was together was great. Very valuable, fascinating software.

I just returned from 29th International Papillomavirus Conference. I was pleasantly surprised by how many there knew of IMS and all the good things they had to say about us. Some had worked with us directly and others had heard of us through their NCI collaborators. Many individual programmers were mentioned for doing excellent work. I was very happy to hear all the praise.

IMS combines an efficient work environment where you are encouraged to get involved with a number of projects, with a great friendly environment with bagel Fridays, ice cream first birthdays, and contract parties.

IMS has provided an environment for me to grow and learn throughout my entire 16 year career. Even after 16 years I am still given opportunities to take on new systems and projects that expand my knowledge base.

IMS values the employee - you aren’t crammed into cubicles. They provide parking, and they don’t require you to work overtime and when you do they compensate you for it. Most everyone I know has had multiple jobs but I’ve stayed with IMS my entire career because I found a great place to work that values me as a person as well as an employee.

I really appreciate IMS's attitude that employees should have a life outside of work. A 40-hour work week with paid overtime, generous vacation time, and an attitude that family comes first have made this a great place to work for 24 years.

I am continually looking at inventory systems to see new trends in data enhancements surrounding sample storage. None of the systems I have seen hold a candle to the BSI. IMS has a truly well thought out data management system that is flexible enough to allow us to evolve.

BSI is a very sophisticated software package that allows organizations to manage and maintain biological specimens. Our experience with BSI has been extremely positive as the software package has evolved through time.

With the help of the Squish guys, we've got the use of a great real-time online database to keep everyone up to speed on progress. This thing has already saved us countless time and we haven't even shipped the demo yet.

I started working at IMS as an office assistant and data entry operator with no college degree. Within two years I had become a full -time programmer. IMS gave me an opportunity that I probably would not have gotten elsewhere.

One of the unique things about IMS is their policy to promote from within. This eliminates the too often used corporate practice of hiring management to come in and rock the boat. Your managers at IMS have done what you are doing and thus don't put unrealistic expectations on you as an employee or person.

I really appreciate that my supervisors at IMS are sincerely interested in helping me to grow in my computer experience. When I've had difficulties with a project they did not berate me, but worked to provide the resources and environment to help me to work through those difficulties.

I started at IMS with a B.S. in Mathematics and no professional experience. IMS provided a flexible schedule that allowed me to earn a Ph.D. in Biostatistics, and for the past 20 years, my work at IMS has provided me with opportunities to gain experience while producing publications with NCI statisticians and other researchers.

Over the years, I’ve gone from being an entry-level computer programmer to a manager, and I’ve picked up a lot of science along the way. Since our managers are promoted from within, there’s always room to grow and learn.

Before IMS, I worked at a Fortune 500. Everyone worked in a state of fear. Deadlines were set so that management could impress executives. If a mistake was made, someone had to be blamed and fired. When mistakes are made at IMS, all effort is on correcting the problem, instead of assigning blame. IMS may not be Fortune 500, but I find it a much nicer place to work.

Findings from several of my studies have made the national news. It's exciting to tell your family and friends that you were a part of a news story they've heard about, and I feel like I'm making a real contribution to cancer research.

I appreciate the flexibility that IMS offers so that I can attend my child's school functions. This flexibility, in turn, makes me want to give more back. Isn't that really the way it should work? I've been at IMS for my entire 20 years career. I can't envision working for anyone else!

I still think back to the time when I first started working at IMS. I thought I would work here for a few years and then go somewhere else, but here I still am, 14 years later. So IMS has been good to me and I thank you for that.

The National Cancer Institute turned to a company called Information Management Services, which had been handling some registry work. The two decided to create a single system that could be used by all.
