    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.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Always engaged in meaningful opportunities, helping those interested in Data Integration with strategic and high tech solution architecture to meet demanding enterprise requirements. Working for the leader in this space who is committed to excellence and investing in R&D to stay ahead has been a rewarding experience. Excellent leadership and management teams with a high regard for individual and corporate success. Competitive compensation plans are a plus.

    Cons

    Product development teams tend to work within their own product space and at time overlook the efforts of other teams and technologies when initially designing products, creating additional efforts in future releases to integrate the products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Create new spiffs and incentives for the presales teams.

    Pros

    Full support throughout the organization to help you with daily challenges. Values that are lived by that you can feel within the whole Org. Perks like car program, newest tech gadgets (IPhone 5s/6, MacBook if wished...) Office culture is open and inviting to be creative and focus on important things rather than do micromanagement

    Cons

    Few management changes that have been ongoing over the last years due to restructuring and growth of the organization needs adoption and flexibility from employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look on long term success rather then Quarter2Quarter improvements.

    Pros

    executing the strategy to ride the wave ahead of our competitiors, makes for an organization with a positive attitude towards change. been here for 2,5 years now and a lot has changed for the good of us. The fact that we are small enough for people to be recognized and initiatives are welcomed in combination to be the champion in the champions league, gives me the feeling that I am happy to be part of INFA and grow my career here.

    Cons

    Being a dynamic company, sometimes gives the feeling that after having taking two steps forward, we take one step back sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to find the sweet spot of being the personable organization that we are right now and trippling our firm without losing our focus on the team/people.
