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

    Pros

    Work life balance People Get to see relaxed work culture - in other teams too Best location in Toronto - it does matter free snacks, drinks and free lunch Fridays - for some it may not be that of a perk, but for most it is Socials ( alcohol, cheese, people interaction ) Get to learn such a complex product

    Cons

    Work life balance is different for 1-2 teams so do check with ex-colleagues/friends Salary is okay - definitely not bad but should be better for senior folks Tech stack - after working for several product companies, in my opinion tech stack is kind of outdated.

    Pros

    The people at Informatica are all very smart, friendly and hardworking which makes for a great culture where people not only work hard, but also like to socialize and have fun together. Additionally the work can be challenging, which is great for learning new skills. The hours are flexible as well and you can work from home.

    Cons

    With such a large complicated product you have to know who to ask for which help, which can make the development process longer. Additionally requirements can change a lot which can make it more stressful.

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

    Pros

    - work life balance - compensation is competitive - work can be rewarding if given the right opportunities which there are depending on product group and role

    Cons

    - shotgun performance incentives with no options etc means lack of incentive for go-getters - there are coasters - no career growth and lack of recognition for my particular position in my particular group - some management have a very unbalanced upward management vs downward management strategy
