    Pros

    Great company attitude. Leadership is open, honest, and very enthusiastic. Good compensation and benefits. The company was very supportive when I moved and started working remotely after 3 years of employment. Product training, for the most part, is very good. Little to no office politics.

    Cons

    Not a huge con, but as a remote employee, I feel moving up in the company will be a challenge. Moving away from the office was my choice, so I cannot knock them too hard for this.

    Advice to Management

    keep it up!

    Pros

    Informatica people are the best to work with! I have been so impressed by the sense of teamwork and the supportive environment as I learned the massive amount of information that's available for my product set.

    Cons

    It is difficult to understand where to go within the R&D ranks to get information or to pass along product issues. Feedback is also hard get back from those situations.

    Pros

    Surrounded by great people and as the company fights to grow at a rapid pace, there should be a lot of work to be done. People are top quality though. Very smart, considerate, and organized. The work-life balance is great as along as you get your work done.

    Cons

    Sometimes things are too slow. It does have a slight corporate feel to it and limited resources to help you out in accomplishing your goals. There's been a lot of change in the past few months as well, so there's room for some uncertainty of the future.

    Pros

    Fun, friendly, smart and supportive colleagues with very little hierarchical protocols. New and bright office space and plenty of training if you raise your hand.

    Cons

    With the rapid growth the company is experiencing you can easily get out of balance with work and life demands. Wearing too many is counterproductive in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    With the wide range in senior level and entry level people, some mandatory training is in order to close the skills gap and lessen the need to always be coaching.

    Pros

    Small company culture with a friendly & fun atmosphere. In general the company focuses on execution and getting things done. There is good work life balance and a healthy stream of team building events. Good amount of training and personal growth opportunities available. Flexibility in moving around and relocating to the right team and project.

    Cons

    Some amount of saturation in mid-management and at times the decision making has been lethargic that has resulted in loss of momentum. There have been technical missteps around some of the projects over the years and folks have been slow to own up to that and correct them as it requires rocking the boat.

    Pros

    We work hard - but we also play hard and have fun. Company values are a great match - benefits package is excellent and always being improved. Our work facilities are new and highly functional. Management is very flexible and have a heightened awareness when it comes to work/life balance.

    Cons

    The past two quarters have been difficult but I have strong faith that management has made the correct changes to reverse the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay on the leading edge - competition is tough.

    Pros

    The cloud has sent major sets of data everywhere. A leader in data integration and MDM, the company has a really unique opportunity. Management always trying to do the right and best thing. Very interested in the growth and satisfaction of its people. Open, collegial, team-oriented, committed.

    Cons

    The strategy could be clearer, but it seems we are working on it consistently.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the strategy leaders in product and our executives are aligned for success, then fuel our growth!

    Pros

    I work with a lot of great people from my individual team all the way up to the department head and executive board. Informatica trusts its resources and I am able to work with minimal over site, but maximum support. My manager is never looking over my shoulder, but immediately responds with anything I need to be successful. Within the team we al support each other with our areas of expertise and experience which is extremely important since our products are constantly evolving and adding functionality.

    Compensation and benefits are good. I have noticed them to be very competitive with the industry. Training is always available but mostly in a self-service, online forum.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between spoken values and expectations and the actions taken.

    Advice to Management

    Increase efforts to make sure compensation, awards and culture are all in alignment with our core values and mission.

    Pros

    Open door to management.
    Very flexible work environment with telecommuting available for most roles.
    Excellent compensation and benefits package.
    Team-based work environment.

    Cons

    Most of those working here entered with the primary skills required for the job. Training is sporadic without a comprehesive education plan.
    Too much time spent on conference calls for most positions, which reduces productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Offer paths to career advancement with the addition of more training and shadowing opportunities.

    Dynamic and growing company with good benefits.

    Work life balance is difficult maintain. Lots of "requests" from outside immediate organization that puts stress on everyone. Sales demands trump everything else.
