I worked at Informatica (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits and pay, probably the best package I've ever had. The engineers I worked with were some of the best in the business.

Cons

Some of the worst management I have ever experienced. The company seemed to be intent on growing their offshore unit rather than addressing the issues at hand. Others have commented on the weight of personal relationships rather than results as a driver, an observation I would have to concur with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to get to know your direct reports and treat them like the professionals they are.

    I worked at Informatica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation and some really technical talent.

    Cons

    I have never worked in a company with so many people in senior management positions with small people syndrome. The attitude is not what you know but the clique you belong to. It was uncomfortable and felt like I was in high school again. The management team has been together so long and act like the popular kids that bully you and can do no wrong. They preach a work culture of embracing and rarely follow their own advice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break up the clique and get some new people to lead some great technical talent. Get some leaders the are honest and real.
