Good development methodology and processes

Conflicting direction from management with regard to client support and how to handle cyclical nature of requests
Managment will throw employees under the bus to make the client happy
Yearly layoffs in late fall
2012 was an outstanding year financially, but no raises and small bonuses

Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at FICO full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great people who care for one another. People provide very good guidance, senior leadership are in general accessible.

    Cons

    Constant change in focus. Lot of processes and layers to navigate. People are too nice, and thus things get a while to get done and no body pushed them on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create focus. Hire more technical folks in upper management. Review old timers and see what value they bring to the organization.

    I have been working at FICO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Recognizable name
    -Workout facility on site

    Cons

    -Company claims there is opportunity for growth and "FICO rewards competency development and strong performance by promoting on average 10% to 12% of the company population as part of a semi-annual review process.", however in talking with fellow employees, most feel like they are being held back.
    -Raises are meager
    -Management is not transparent, open, or honest.
