Intelligent associates, good place to learn on the job but lacks strong employee development and training

I worked at FICO full-time for less than a year

Pros

Highly intelligent co-workers, cutting edge analytics, good compensation

Cons

Training limited to online PPT presentations. No mentoring. Remote-based employees "left on an island". Communicatiion is poor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management was too focused on cost control, which allowed limited to no travel for training, shadowing mentors, on-site client engagement for learning purposes. As a new employee in a remote-based position, I felt in many ways I had to fend for myself or was lost. There is not a strong training/on-boarding program, especially someone new to consulting. Management did not do a good job with team/associate development. Inter-company communication is very poor and needs improvement.

    I worked at FICO for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are many friendly people there, although some areas are pretty 'clicky'. Some teams are great to work on while there are other less friendly teams. This seems to be determined by the managers.

    Cons

    There are not always raises or bonuses every year for employees below manager status. There seems to be a lot of layoffs.
