    Pros

    Informatica has all the tools needed to be an effective employee
    Initial enablement is thorough
    Everyone is helpful and pleasant to work with
    Pay is very competitive
    So far, this company has impressed me more positively than any other where I have worked.

    Cons

    So much enablement I haven't been able to work with customers (Yet!)
    Can't think of any others so far

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm pretty new. Generally I would say keep doing what you are doing. The only thing I have noticed so far is there seem to be a large number of managers. This may be because so many people have been here a long time and needed to be promoted. Also the managers seem willing to dig in and get their hands dirty so it is not necessarily a negative.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very good and my immediate management is very good. Pre-Sales management has always worked hard to enable us in our jobs and listen/respond to our issues.

    Cons

    Corporate mostly acts as if pre-sales does not exist. Although I personally led the technical side of sales in doubling our number last year no one from corporate ever mentioned my name and in fact credited sales overlays that weren't even involved in deals. At this point HQ seems out of touch with what is happening in the field. Let's hope the new sales management will dig out of the hole created by the last regime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an environment where hard work and quality results are rewarded in more than just the sales team.

    Pros

    Depending on your role, they are flexible on work schedule. Great work/life balance. Even for remote employees, they try to loop you in to town hall events and meetings - they even stream them so you feel like you're sitting in the room! Great benies, competitive pay. Management seems interested in what you have to say.

    Cons

    Time off is on an accrual basis. I came from an open time off policy where you took what you needed. However, you still get an ample amount of time in your first year. You receive more as your tenure increases. Wouldn't mind seeing a more flexible pto policy.
