    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.

    Good place to work.

    I worked at Informatica

    Pros

    Informatica has a long history of hiring really smart people. Almost across the board, they find ways to hire the best and brightest. Expect everyone to be really smart, really helpful, and very, very polite.

    Cons

    I do not have many cons to report. If you want to try to get promoted and move up in the pecking order, you will be competing with the best and brightest.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Informatica has kept its focus on Data Integration, while at the same time adapting itself to how that market is evolving. There is a great informal culture that encourages innovation. It is currently at a position where it can benefit from the new trends in data integration - cloud and big data.

    Cons

    Taking a new initiative is generally encouraged, but taking it to the next level is much harder - to find organizational backing, getting resources and getting existing teams to respond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more frequent reviews of the new initiatives. Get more direct employee feedback for key focus areas, especially from people who have been around for more than 3-5 years.
