    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 Bi-yearly reviews is a really outdated way of determining the employees performance.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.

    Cons

    1. Not yet very well known in India

    Advice to Management

    For all the good work FICO does, people are not aware of what we do. Better marketing should do the trick

    Pros

    Smart and competent personnel. Flexibility and ability to telecommute. Good vacation benefits for long term employees. Opportunities to work with newer technologies.

    Cons

    Benefits are mediocre and get worse each year. Layoffs. Teams work in silos. Poor raises and bonus pool.\ Upper management focus seems to be on stock price and not the personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people that keep this company running and less on pleasing stockholders.
