    Pros

    Culture is OK. Decent pay.

    Cons

    New management comes in and ruins morale...you are never valued and always replaceable. That is the mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employess that have been around. They know what's best for the company not some new hot shot executive

    Pros

    useful products, good work environment, devoted following by the customers who have been using the products for many years in the traditional areas.

    Cons

    some loss of focus due to challenging m&a activities that add too much complexity for customers and not enough value to warrant continued investments.

    Advice to Management

    go back to the basics and do that really well; you have the best products in the industry and are able to deliver the right things to customers if you just listen.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, awesome benefits, solid industry awarded product.

    Cons

    Marketing is clueless. Senior sales leadership has its head in the sand when it comes to challenges in the Field. Ramp time is really long because training is nearly non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for more reports and busy work and the rest of your talent will walk out the door. Support the field, don't grind them into oblivion.

    promotions, training, management - a flat organization w/ little chance of promo

    Advice to Management

    invest in employee training, create promotion paths, and be more transparent in upward mobility, there's no consistency as to who is promoted or what criteria was used.

    Pros

    I have been with Informatica for more than three years now and enjoyed being part of this company.

    - Greta work environment which has very supportive team and Very approachable management.
    -Lots of scope for self-learning through on-demand and classroom trainings provided.
    -Work-life balance.
    -Work from home option.
    -Free Food
    -Fitness facility and Yoga Classes

    Cons

    -Unless you and your manager make noise and are vocal of the challenges they overcame at a customers, nobody recognizes your work.
    -Promotion is flat based on number of years of experience.
    -Since most of the revenue is generated by US, Indian team receives step-motherly treatment.
    -Sometimes You never get opportunity to work on products you took training for.

    Advice to Management

    It is highly demotivating when no recognition is provided.
    Please analyse the work done by your team members.
    Monotonous work is a killer.

    Pros

    Very competitive internal teams - lots to learn from your peers. Pretty amiable environment internally - teams ready to help. Significant learning opportunities. Unlike many other software firms, Bangalore continues to be the hub from where major product R&D ownership and delivery comes from. Excellent PreSales leadership in India.

    Cons

    Very lean organization. Most departments struggle with bandwidth round the year. Investment in a region comes only if results are delivered ahead to indicate potential - something that is a big blow for regions like India. Being a US-centric company from Sales perspective - countries like India where the annual revenue opportunity is way smaller than what US or other regions deliver, resourcing or employee wages would always be on the lower side.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in regions outside of US esp India. Treat Sales support teams also fairly like your core Sales organization - PreSales is pretty much being given step-child treatment. Bring in more people to bridge the uneven reporting structures - too many junior level positions in APJ region directly reporting into APJ head causing a lot of the suggestions/requests going unheard. PreSales compensation in India is way below what competition offers in this region - will not help attrition at all.
