I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Nice pay package and health benefits.
Innovative R&D.
market leader in its domain.

Cons

Informatica professional services as an organization is just great , the only complain i have is with senior leadership in my vertical (DI).they don't take any interest in career development of the resources , they scoff on any idea of your going to other well managed groups (MDM/DQ/SEAL) . we badly need 360 degree feedback.
If you get an offer make sure you are not coming to IPS Data Integration practice all other groups are simply awesome.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please start 360 degree feedback , its a great organization ...don't let few bad apples spoil the party for everyone. I always dissuade my friends to join IPS DI practice.

    Pros

    Pay for the role is OK, not keeping up with the Google/FB/Linkedin's anymore though.

    Cons

    Many single points of failure. Many contractors who doesn't have to be managed as staff, which management seems to like. A lot of turnover right now, at both executive and staff level. Not enough staff to justify all the upper-middle management. Staff not part of the team, treated like contractors. Everything looks to be moving to India, where quality is terrible. Accountability is arbitrary. HR is absent...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people, they will feel part of a team vs. part of a machine. They will stay for the mission, even if other things are hard. Manage your people, not your processes. Empower your staff vs. disable their ability to make a decision at every corner. No one feels safe or knows what is going on.
