I worked at FICO full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good work life balance with lots of opportunities to work from home.
Some really interesting projects.

Cons

Poor quality senior management, very bureaucratic, little strategic guidance and very hard to get things done.
Regularly buy companies that are quick fixes to big problems but don't address the long term issues.
Departments tend to be silos with little coordination between them.
Regular rounds of redundancies.
Pay rises and bonuses are intermittent. Generally pay is uncompetitive and recruiting good staff tricky.

    Benefits- insurance plan best in industry and full family cover etc

    Cons

    Management was not sure of its future plans so the same was reflected i the employee commitment.
    Should never withdraw any benefits or reduce its scale.
