    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Informatica is positioned in a very strong segment of the market and has leading technologies in all sectors it covers. Staff is focused around making a difference, and the focus on customer success is very strong. Good comp plans.

    Cons

    Still struggling with EMEA organization and going through normal growth pains. Two steps forward, one steps back when it comes to acting upon its vision. Sometimes marketing gets too far away from the actual products, making it difficult for customers to connect the dots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue approach with freedom under responsibility and don't be afraid to be in it for the long run. Make sure managers continue focus on employee and business development, rather than getting stuck in admin.
