    Pros

    Great working atmosphere. Management is very supportive. Leadership is very good. There is a great emphasis on training and development. There is both guidance and autonomy. I have learned a number of skills that have added to my success.

    Cons

    I would like to see a greater emphasis on building improvements into PowerExchange, especially in the area of supporting different database environments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see support for additional databases built into PowerExchange CDC.

    Pros

    Outstanding Leadership
    Excellent Benefits and Salaries
    Tremendous Work ethic
    Diversified Product lines
    Career Advancement Opportunities

    Amount of work load to number of resources available is not as balanced as would like but it's getting better
    With many products available the ramp up time for new employees may be a challenge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain focused
    Continue to recognize deserving employees
    Retain market leading position
    Continue cross selling products to existing customers

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

    Pros

    Informatica has kept its focus on Data Integration, while at the same time adapting itself to how that market is evolving. There is a great informal culture that encourages innovation. It is currently at a position where it can benefit from the new trends in data integration - cloud and big data.

    Cons

    Taking a new initiative is generally encouraged, but taking it to the next level is much harder - to find organizational backing, getting resources and getting existing teams to respond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more frequent reviews of the new initiatives. Get more direct employee feedback for key focus areas, especially from people who have been around for more than 3-5 years.

    Good place to work.

    I worked at Informatica

    Pros

    Informatica has a long history of hiring really smart people. Almost across the board, they find ways to hire the best and brightest. Expect everyone to be really smart, really helpful, and very, very polite.

    Cons

    I do not have many cons to report. If you want to try to get promoted and move up in the pecking order, you will be competing with the best and brightest.

    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

    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.

    Pros

    I'm very happy to be part of the Informatica Sales Consulting team.

    Here's what I like the most:
    * The company invests heavily on their new and experienced hires. You are provided with many training opportunities to learn the products and the sales methodology. I can't remember the last time I had this much training.
    * The company sells quality software and customers seem very happy with the Informatica software they own.
    * The compensation and benefits are above average.
    * The people I work with have a positive attitude. They work hard and play hard.
    * This is a good sized company that gives you many opportunities for advancement. Several of the people in my network that work at Informatica have been here for more than 3 years and people rarely leave the company.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None right now.
