    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

    Great products; strong, ethical leadership; a real focus on customer success; and financially strong.

    Cons

    Too big to be bible with new technologies; sometimes the bureaucracy is more than a company of their size can justify.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the drive to $3B in revenue adversely effect the great culture your have created.

    Pros

    Company has great outlook and looking strong.

    Cons

    Company is entering into new areas and a lot depends in how it performs in next 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Need to set priorities carefully and see where it is worth investing, maybe a bit diversified.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits including low cost for health insurance, high 401k match, pet insurance, dental. Very competitive salary with variable compensation that can greatly increase yearly income, care about employees by offering free fitbits, unlimited vacation, emphasis on work/life balance.

    Cons

    The structure can be a bit flat with opportunities to move up limited with such low turn over but if a person really strives to excel they will be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing and please don't ever change and I'm sure most of us will be employees until the day we retire.
