    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better for senior folks Tech stack - after working for several product companies, in my opinion tech stack is kind of outdated.

    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

    I have been working at Informatica full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    In spite of the Covid situation, the onboarding was smooth. Happy to see the helping hands all around (May it be IT, HR or colleagues in RnD). I find profound inclusiveness which in turn talks a lot about the mature culture at Informatica. Technical excellence, Clear and transparent communication from the top, Leadership (Being #1) in the business are some of the Pros at the business level. On the employee side, unmatched work life balance, utmost attention to employee well being are pros!

    Cons

    None, so far (I am too new as well)
