I have been working at Informatica full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good health benefits, gym facility

Toxic environment.
Management within Engineering is very immature, micromanage and beat the hell out of any forward looking idea.
Stuck in the 80's technology wise.

Clean up management.
Too much dead wood around.

    I worked at Informatica for 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.
