Great professional services job, only if you are willing to travel.

Pros

Informatica is a great organization to work with, they respect your personal opinion, value your decision. There is always time to balance your work n life, its left to individual if they want to earn more by burning their personal time. This habit is forbidden, but there is only something can be done by management. Leaders within and coworkers are helpful, it’s like if you ask right question you get right answer. With the time the organization has matured, as we all know achieving maturity is continuous process. With the relatively less number of people, the organization has global and detail reach to their customer and employees. Great

Cons

If you are with professional service division, then you have to travel a lot. Always pack a bag and be on your toes. If you are more like a people person, and cant work on your own...then this is not for you. Imagine you will be given everything you ask for but the people you can talk face to face. Its the job, yo all will be working together but sitting on different islands.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is great, with the promotion and growth within organization they seems (!) far reachable.

    Pros

    the salary and benefits were good. it's a large enough company to provide plenty of paths for career advancement. it's small enough that there aren't too many hurdles/bureaucracy impeding productivity. the company is well positioned compared to its competitors. they offer an employee stock purchase plan, which is a pretty good value. the company events can be pretty fun. we went on a few trips.

    Cons

    the projects were pretty boring. the software development process is characterized by periods of low pressure and boredom followed by periods of high pressure (possibly working weekends) before a new release of a software product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve middle management by hiring people with better leadership skills (not only technical skills).

    Pros

    very stable company during the unstable economy
    nice friendly employees, there isn't a lot company politics within each of the departments
    about average health / dental coverage
    depending on the manager, the job is pretty fair and manageable

    Cons

    every time someone leaves, there is no replacement due to very tight budgets (which is good for company survival during the slow economy but bad for raises or bonuses)

    simultaneously juggling multiple projects due to lack of employees

    some politics between subsidiaries or different product lines

    sometimes it's hard to get an exact direction from management due to the constant change in product design and plans during the release cycle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some information needs to be filtered down a lot better.
