    Pros

    Enterprise level Integration is a good place to be in despite freebee products out there.
    Company has a range of products that enable it address multiple market verticals.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment.
    The company is focused on moving 'all' of Engineering & Operations offshore.

    Lately they have been importing folks from India on 2 yr work visas.
    Work hours are brutal with no work-life balance.

    Managers are pathetic with no people skills what-so-ever.
    New products or ideas are non existent.
    The good ones have either left or are heading towards the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your act.

    I worked at Informatica

    Pros

    - Real grip on data integration
    - Great R&D Talent
    - Relentless focus to winning
    - Strong player in Data Quality
    - Real "science driven" approach to solutions

    Cons

    - Decisions took a long time to be made
    - Has a "bad carbon copy" feel to Oracle. Oracle is changing fast, not afraid of failure, whereas Informatica does fear failure and will turn left and right than deal with the real problems it has
    - Company struggles between the lure of on premise but the need for cloud. Two competing business models do not work
    - Company has hired a great marketing team that is perhaps ahead of rest of company, not sure if rest of company can catch up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on whether it's the big million dollar deals of on premise that will lead this company to the future or is it the cloud, which will be a more costly (profit wise) venture? Doing both is very difficult and not scale-able. Lack of focus and precision has led to big hiring and big spending with minimal result. It's time to fight hard or not fight at all.
