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.

Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was with the company for almost four years and in that period, lots of policy changed to lesser employee centric thus loosing one of its best qualities

    Pros

    In particular, when I first joined, FICO had a wonderful reputation with excellent software and analytics capability.
    Generally, the working environment is good and the flexbility with working hours and telecommuting was great.

    Cons

    Some of the senior management team, particularly in APAC just don't seem to have a clue about our business and it shows in terms of the lack of real direction or leadership.

    Dealings with HR were awful!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Previously there seemed to be a known direction and an investment in research and dev. Somewhere along the road, we lost this direction and too many decisions are made with short term focus only being considered. Please address and do not let our best people leave.
