    Pros

    Informatica is a hidden gem in the Silicon Valley. The company has best in class technology. The management team is a good mix of company veterans and new talent. The employees that Informatica hires are hard working, dedicated and committed to doing the right thing for the company and its customers.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to be done being a mid-size company. The business unit structure can be challenging to navigate, but is certainly possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue taking calculated risks as we grow and move into adjacent markets. Be bold about the company and our products.

    Pros

    The way Management spares your feelings by talking about you behind your back so you don't have to be faced with humiliation directly.

    Cons

    Just about everything from the way we are compensated to the fact that Management keeps us in the dark about the company being so well capitalized based on their wonderful decisions to now seeking investors for an eventual sale of the company. Pffff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best of luck surviving when there is accountability for your role when we get acquired.

    Pros

    The company really cares about customers and employees' development. what I most value here is "money can be earned without doing evil", which is from company's annual ethic training.

    Cons

    As the world changes everyday, the company faces different challenges, to meet the requirement, I need study and update my knowledge, sometimes I am short of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do my best for the company, when I don't have experience to do better and need support from management team. please support.

    Pros

    Ability to work with "big data" and acquire skills that are demanded in the industry.
    Co-workers and managers are knowledgeable and very team oriented.
    Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Can be a stressful place to work nearing deadlines.
    The first couple weeks of the job could be difficult as there is a lot to learn about the products.

    Pros

    Flexible organization, doesn't micro-manage, lots of flexibility in roles, good products. The organization is in a good space for a software company, and it has a lot of growth potential

    Cons

    Internal systems need improving, some stronger integration between different business units would help in growing the scope of their opportunities in the data management space

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A full push on moving from a tools company to a solution company is a must if the comany is to continue the growth expected as an organization.

    Culture is OK. Decent pay.

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Good culture. Informatica has a good work culture compared to many Software product companies.

    Cons

    Management always changing the way various tasks are done. Only thing that is constant is change. Change is supposed to be a good thing only if the change improves a process, most of the changes done by Infa Managment doesnt improve the process but just change it.
