    Advice to Management

    People are what could make your company great - stop treating them like inventory. Get rid of people who are all about themselves and not the company

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

    Pros

    1) Analytics team is among the best in the industry 2) Great environment for virtual office workers 3) Great place for junior-to-midcareer sales

    Cons

    1) FICO has been trying to reinvent itself since the Tom Grudnowski era. Still attempting to do that, and the current Cloud strategy is questionable. 2) Board is sometimes too involved company operations, leading to weak senior leadership. 3) Sales comp plans seem designed more to reign in cost of sales than nurture a strong sales culture.

    Advice to Management

    Every company needs balance sales comp plans with prudent financial management. However, FICO has occasionally gone overboard in creating a sales environment that is at times confusing and demotivating.
