    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.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The products do what they are supposed to, the people are great and professional, the pay is competitive, the culture is friendly...honestly, it has everything you want in a company.

    Cons

    I personally find it a bit unfair when bonuses are tied to objectives that are completely out of your control (i.e. utilization for those in positions that don't control staffing or business development).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Informatica has historically done a good job of allowing for a good work-life balance. However, now that we are a billion dollar company, we need to make sure that processes, requirement certification/training, etc. are enforced in a way that people feel that can do work during work times and not during personal time. That is, if utilization is tied to bonuses but certification and other activities are considered overhead, you are forcing a great percentage of the people to do work during their personal time to protect their money. It's fine if people choose to do more than 40 hours a week of work, but by tying money into the mix, some people may feel that they are forced into a situation where they have to do this. This is a challenging problem to solve, but this needs to be handled carefully or else people will lose sight of the value of training/certification or the employees become disgruntled because their well being is being threatened.

    I worked at Informatica as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent products and services. Amazing people. Free decision realm for great projects. Coworkers and management work close together with same company standards.

    Cons

    Based on high projects demands, there is very little time available for training and get into deep knowledge of products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes I felt a kinda lost at clients installations due to lack of training and of course no support from coworkers because they're also too busy.
