    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Informatica is a hidden gem in the Silicon Valley. The company has best in class technology. The management team is a good mix of company veterans and new talent. The employees that Informatica hires are hard working, dedicated and committed to doing the right thing for the company and its customers.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to be done being a mid-size company. The business unit structure can be challenging to navigate, but is certainly possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue taking calculated risks as we grow and move into adjacent markets. Be bold about the company and our products.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time

    Pros

    Be in the front row of technology with the market leader. Hard-core consultancy experience with great level of independence (no layers of mid to high level managers for the sake of it). Most of the internal applications are self-serve and cloud based making it easy for doing everything by yourself and on-the run.

    Great client base, challenging technical & solution landscape. Great support from global teams and leadership putting technology and brand at the top.

    Cons

    Rapid self phased skilling up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should assist in skilling up in fast phase. More attention required here with latest technology landscape changes.

    Pros

    Open door policy.
    "Can do" attitude
    Nimble
    Great products

    Cons

    Very tactical sales focus
    Possible shift in value of people/employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on lowering attrition and increasing value and productivity from existing employees rather than the "drop and replace" strategy that seems to be the latest trend.

    Pros

    Company provides good time-off during an year, office culture is very good. Work-life balance can be achieved here.

    Cons

    I was not able to go to 'The Club' after I was awarded the 'Best Performer' award. The reason I was not able to go was - kids were not allowed. Informatica should have alternatively awarded me in that case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there are plans to expand in India, Informatica should open office in Tier II city [e.g. Nagpur].
