    Pros

    Informatica is a hidden gem in the Silicon Valley. The company has best in class technology. The management team is a good mix of company veterans and new talent. The employees that Informatica hires are hard working, dedicated and committed to doing the right thing for the company and its customers.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to be done being a mid-size company. The business unit structure can be challenging to navigate, but is certainly possible.

    Advice to Management

    Continue taking calculated risks as we grow and move into adjacent markets. Be bold about the company and our products.

    Pros

    People friendly environment. You can make friends from almost every department. Definitely great work life balance.

    Cons

    It took over 10 years for the company to change from $200M revenue to $1 billion. Great products however too diversified. Cloud subscription is the key to success.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, awesome benefits, solid industry awarded product.

    Cons

    Marketing is clueless. Senior sales leadership has its head in the sand when it comes to challenges in the Field. Ramp time is really long because training is nearly non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for more reports and busy work and the rest of your talent will walk out the door. Support the field, don't grind them into oblivion.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits including low cost for health insurance, high 401k match, pet insurance, dental. Very competitive salary with variable compensation that can greatly increase yearly income, care about employees by offering free fitbits, unlimited vacation, emphasis on work/life balance.

    Cons

    The structure can be a bit flat with opportunities to move up limited with such low turn over but if a person really strives to excel they will be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing and please don't ever change and I'm sure most of us will be employees until the day we retire.

  8. Good company that seems to be turning around by getting back to its roots.

    Pros

    useful products, good work environment, devoted following by the customers who have been using the products for many years in the traditional areas.

    Cons

    some loss of focus due to challenging m&a activities that add too much complexity for customers and not enough value to warrant continued investments.

    Advice to Management

    go back to the basics and do that really well; you have the best products in the industry and are able to deliver the right things to customers if you just listen.

  9. Great company culture, but your experience is subject to your direct boss!

    Pros

    The company does believe in work/life balance and the compensation and benefits are competitive. However, work/life balance is a direct reflection on how your immediate supervisor feels about that. So even though the company does believe in balance, if your manager does not, you won't get that balance.

    Cons

    There is definitely opportunities to be promoted at this company as they continue to grow, but your experience will vary based on the competence or incompetence of your direct boss.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the product set and stop trying to be a jack of all trades and master of just a few. Go after the markets you dominate and get rid of the rest of the outlining products!

    Pros

    Great culture, intern events, great people.

    The intern program was well organized and they really took care of all of the interns.

    Informatica is a great company to work for and I hope that doesn't change as it grows.

    Cons

    There wasn't really any real feedback or review at the conclusion of the internship.

    Some the managers weren't accessible.
