    Good Company & Great place to work

    Senior Director (Former Employee)
    Redwood City, CA

    Pros- Very good leadership team
    - Best product in market
    - Excellent benefits
    - Nice office building
    - Healthy work environment
    - Manageable workload
    - Free gym membership
    - Pays above the 50 percentile of market comp

    Cons- Growth is slowing and stock is in decline
    - Title inflation at senior levels
    - Employees are often not considered for internal leadership opportunities. Certain Execs prefer to recruit outside and appear to be hiring their buddies from previous jobs.
    - Company is getting more "mature". There is an increasing number of policies and process. This is not necessarily a Con but makes it more difficult to get work done and may be slowing growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job overall.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent culture, growing company!!

    Senior Talent Acquisition Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsDepending on your role, they are flexible on work schedule. Great work/life balance. Even for remote employees, they try to loop you in to town hall events and meetings - they even stream them so you feel like you're sitting in the room! Great benies, competitive pay. Management seems interested in what you have to say.

    ConsTime off is on an accrual basis. I came from an open time off policy where you took what you needed. However, you still get an ample amount of time in your first year. You receive more as your tenure increases. Wouldn't mind seeing a more flexible pto policy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Informatica is an Excellent Company to Work For.

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee)
    Redwood City, CA

    ProsPositive Work Environment. Career Growth Opportunities. Great People. Ideal Benefits. Nice Campus and General Location.

    ConsNot as well known of a company as others in the Silicon Valley. Pay scale is more on the conservative side, but still reasonable.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great exposure to software sales and technology

    Inside Sales (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsWork with seasoned pros in sales
    Many enablement opportunities - great sales resources
    Opportunity to sell to the largest enterprises in the world
    Sales Leadership is sound, visionary, and realistic...no cheap psych-up (most of the time)

    ConsComp plan lacks incentive muscle - pay is ok, but strategically restrictive
    You're at the bottom of the pyramid, so you must be vigilant to secure reward

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep encouraging a healthy blend of persistence, knowledge, and calculated risk-taking.

    Wonderful company and environment!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Redwood City, CA

    ProsThe leadership is dynamic, approachable and genuine! The company has recently "re-invented" itself and is on fire! It is a truly collaborative environment. Individual contributions have an impact and are appreciated!

    ConsThe recent changes and lots of new personnel have caused some minor internal confusion and transition issues, but am confident these will be overcome.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat turn-around - Keep your vision strong and implement clear steps to achieve it!

    Good, smart people who get results and have fun

    Human Resources (Current Employee)
    Redwood City, CA

    Pros- great company overall
    - hot, growing industry
    - market leader
    - good compensation
    - flexible work arrangements
    - fun, spontaneous people who work hard

    Cons- not enough cross-functional collaboration and communication
    - some functions value people less than others
    - some managers are awesome while others are just so-so

    Advice to Senior ManagementAddress the managers that don't value their people. Know where the problems are in the organization (e.g. turnover, morale) and act on them.

    Great Company To Work For

    Principal Sales Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsTop notch co-workers, lots of opportunity to move around, advance and get experience in different roles. Management willing to bend over backward to keep good talent.

    ConsSalaries lag behind competitors, Company is trying to break thru the billion dollar revenue and push it up to 5b long term which means a lot of growing pains, different skill sets needed for that kind of growth in many areas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall vision and direction of the company is spot on, wish there were more company wide updates, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
