I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Healthy teaming environment with most people in similar roles giving most. The field technical personnel has an all-in attitude that should be the model for company as well as others.

Cons

Executive management team sometimes makes decisions in a top-down approach from past experiences instead of bottom up with knowledgeable research.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to understand the breadth of problem before reacting and creating policy.

    Pros

    Company overall is fine. Fast-paced.

    Cons

    Environment at certain department can be very toxic and stressful - lots of politics, lack of respect from management to employees, and a waste of money on unnecessary deliverable/resource.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect employees and recognize them based on their efforts and the work actually being done.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart people, many passionate developers and architects
    Good pay and benefits
    Many old-timers still with the company providing continuity

    Cons

    The most relationship-oriented culture I have experienced (rather than results or accomplishments oriented)
    Frequent (every 6 months) major reorgs
    Very political R&D execs - almost exclusively managing up
    Most planning discussions rotate around what CEO, CPO or other execs want to hear, and what will make our exec look good, not around what the market or customers need
    Many great people have left, especially senior people who joined recently
    Many old-timers are great, but there are too many over-promoted old-timers resting on their laurels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new senior management in R&D
