I worked at FICO full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

We provided valuable software to financial institutions. The technology was cutting edge. The entire campus enjoyed working with each other.

Cons

The only downside was when we hired a CEO from the outside and he gutted the company. Those were a couple of bad years for the employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.
