Pros

Open door to management.
Very flexible work environment with telecommuting available for most roles.
Excellent compensation and benefits package.
Team-based work environment.

Cons

Most of those working here entered with the primary skills required for the job. Training is sporadic without a comprehesive education plan.
Too much time spent on conference calls for most positions, which reduces productivity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer paths to career advancement with the addition of more training and shadowing opportunities.

    Pros

    Ok pay though slipping compared to competition,benefits are good but you got to pay for them, nice choice and ensemble of internal technological systems for core operations. That's it

    Cons

    Middle Sales Management is weak at it's very best both in the field and inside. As mentioned in a previous genuine review they seem to be posturing to cover up the greater issues and there overall lack of experience and regard for Infa's position in the IT market. The training and knowledge of something as vast as DI is not present nor is the potential for capturing additional opportunities by understanding customers overall IT architecture. Unfortunately the scope seems narrow and the ability to take advantage of growth is stagnated due to lack of experience and ambition of Management overall which permeates through the entire organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just rely on the commoditization of your technology as competition is coming up with other technologies and ways to integrate and fuse data. Please put your focus on hiring qualified people and not encouraging HR to write up "Happy happy" reviews. People will eventually be forced to read 3 stars or under reviews to get the real picture before being misled int the org..
