    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

    Flexible work hours and competitive(ish) compensation. I enjoy working at Informatica.

    Cons

    US centric and very difficult to progress internally. The career progression is very limited as it is a small company and there are numerous hires from outside

    Pros

    Open door policy.

    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

    great people & mgmt., forward thinking on business practices as well as technology. Without question, we are the leader in our S/W field of choice, always a huge plus when INFA is respected and recognized as much as it is. Our offices @ HQ are top notch, excellent encouragement from upper mgmt. to having a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    The stock price could and should be higher as compared to other Billion Dollar S/W companies. C-level exec's need to get the company name out there to a much broader investor audience via every/any means possible...you shouldn't have to just be in IT to know about INFA. A higher buy volume usually = stock price going up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    I'm very happy to be part of the Informatica Sales Consulting team.

    Here's what I like the most:
    * The company invests heavily on their new and experienced hires. You are provided with many training opportunities to learn the products and the sales methodology. I can't remember the last time I had this much training.
    * The company sells quality software and customers seem very happy with the Informatica software they own.
    * The compensation and benefits are above average.
    * The people I work with have a positive attitude. They work hard and play hard.
    * This is a good sized company that gives you many opportunities for advancement. Several of the people in my network that work at Informatica have been here for more than 3 years and people rarely leave the company.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None right now.

    growing pains, on prem mentality at times (from certain groups) in a cloud business,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Are we a cloud first, subscription business? If we are, let's act like it internally, message who we are to the marketplace and maximize growth as the industry leader!

    Very sophisticated product portfolio, employee and customer base makes for interesting work.

    Cons

    Large company that is spread geographically can make it hard at times to collaborate with remote colleagues.

    Keep up the transparency on the business plan(s) as it evolves.

    Pros

    Culture, compensation, benefits are all very competitive. Working on the Sales team has been great, as we have a very collaborative and dynamic environment. The leadership has done a great job empowering myself and my colleagues to make key decisions, improve our professional skills and improve client relationships.

    Cons

    Smaller divisions of the organization sometimes don't get as much publicity as the main "bread winning" divisions. My division specifically has grown tremendously and during company announcements doesn't get the recognition I think it deserves.

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

    Pros

    Informatica is a great place to work because it offers a lot of professional and personal development. They provide you with an environment in which to challenge yourself. The people are wonderful and fun to work with. There is plenty of room for advancement. Informatica also provides the ability to participate in community events, and they understand that their employees have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    There is a lot of room for professional and personal improvement and the ability to move up, but it takes a lot of work. I work for a company that was just recently acquired by Informatica, so it has been a roller-coaster as to where we will be going from here, but the outcome looks very positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Management does a great job of teaching everyone as an individual rather than a "employee #09475". Even though there are courses available for professional and personal improvement, it would be nice if they were more available for those that do not work near headquarters or approval for travel should be pre-approved.
