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

Pros

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

Cons

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.
