    Thank you for your comments. We agree that our culture is good. And, as Mike Murdoch is often quoted, "The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine." Look for that spark of opportunity!

    Pros

    Collaborative culture, strong product leadership

    Cons

    The variety of products result in a fragmentation of the customer base. It's hard to describe who Informatica caters to in an organization.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify and focus.

    Pros

    People friendly environment. You can make friends from almost every department. Definitely great work life balance.

    Cons

    It took over 10 years for the company to change from $200M revenue to $1 billion. Great products however too diversified. Cloud subscription is the key to success.

    Pros

    The company does believe in work/life balance and the compensation and benefits are competitive. However, work/life balance is a direct reflection on how your immediate supervisor feels about that. So even though the company does believe in balance, if your manager does not, you won't get that balance.

    Cons

    There is definitely opportunities to be promoted at this company as they continue to grow, but your experience will vary based on the competence or incompetence of your direct boss.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the product set and stop trying to be a jack of all trades and master of just a few. Go after the markets you dominate and get rid of the rest of the outlining products!

    I worked at Informatica

    Pros

    Great culture, intern events, great people.

    The intern program was well organized and they really took care of all of the interns.

    Informatica is a great company to work for and I hope that doesn't change as it grows.

    Cons

    There wasn't really any real feedback or review at the conclusion of the internship.

    Some the managers weren't accessible.

    Pros

    Informatica has a great position in the marketplace and I have never heard a negative word from customers about the solutions. It has a very collaborative environment and full of people who want to win and excel together. All the extended resources are more than ready to help out. They hire very smart and capable people. The work life balance is good and the compensation is very good. Senior management seems to really believe in the company and its future.

    Cons

    As the company is transitioning to become a large organization, it has sometimes lost the "smaller company" feel. It was never a small company, but you always felt like your voice was heard and had the environment of a start-up, a large start-up. Many folks come here from large companies and enjoy the smaller company environment. Don't Lose That.

    Advice to Management

    As many departments are looking to grow, there needs to be more opportunity for employees rather than looking to the outside to hire. There is a fair amount of promoting from within, but take a closer look at your current personnel who have learned the products, the culture, and are familiar with teams and key player within the company. More promotion from within will reduce the turnover, which seems to be growing in the very recent past.
