    I worked at FICO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, good work-life balance, decent benefits although it keeps shrinking each year

    Cons

    Management only focused on bottom line, no culture to speak of, and did I mention the insane layoffs?

    Advice to Management

    Sending out emails saying “help us improve our image on Glassdoor” was silly. Why not just care a bit more about employees instead?

    Pros

    High caliber of co-workers is why you should work at FICO. Great place to solve complex problems with analytics.

    Cons

    People outside of FICO appreciate FICO employees better than people inside FICO. Frequent reductions in force.

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen so there is no need to give them advice.

    I have been working at FICO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You can manage your time much easier than with other companies. Work from home when not traveling which provides a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Depending on the project you are traveling almost 100%. Compensation and manager reviews are not good.

    Advice to Management

    Connect more with your employees, restructure the reviews. Bi-yearly reviews is a really outdated way of determining the employees performance.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours (This depends on the department you work in.) Decent health benefits. Competitive salaries. Good initial vacation allotment.

    Cons

    Very top heavy organization. Because it's a consulting company, it is bottom line oriented. Reductions in force / layoffs are a very common occurrence.
