    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 Management

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

    Pros

    The way this company use to be managed and operated was like one solid family. What happened to those days...

    Cons

    Current Management at all levels ruined this once great company and is responsible for its recent leveraged sale and inevitable demise.

    Advice to Management

    Get lost and thank yourselves for contributing to the dismantling and/or sitting in guilty silence during it course.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.

    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.

    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.

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