    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    work from home, flexible schedule, co-workers, collaboration

    Cons

    promotions, training, management - a flat organization w/ little chance of promo

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in employee training, create promotion paths, and be more transparent in upward mobility, there's no consistency as to who is promoted or what criteria was used.

    Pros

    Some of the best things about working at Informatica is the work and family life balance, the ability to work from home when needed, the overall values of teamwork and excellency, and the CEO has a great way of connecting with the employees and communicating the company goals.

    Cons

    More time should be spent on reflecting on current processes and discussing the most efficient ways of upgrading current workflow processes. Teams can be small and workloads can become demanding when stretched between a small team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for growth and educational growth. Hold more reviews of current workflow processes to determine how to make departments or teams operate more efficiently.

    Pros

    Informatica has a great position in the marketplace and I have never heard a negative word from customers about the solutions. It has a very collaborative environment and full of people who want to win and excel together. All the extended resources are more than ready to help out. They hire very smart and capable people. The work life balance is good and the compensation is very good. Senior management seems to really believe in the company and its future.

    Cons

    As the company is transitioning to become a large organization, it has sometimes lost the "smaller company" feel. It was never a small company, but you always felt like your voice was heard and had the environment of a start-up, a large start-up. Many folks come here from large companies and enjoy the smaller company environment. Don't Lose That.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As many departments are looking to grow, there needs to be more opportunity for employees rather than looking to the outside to hire. There is a fair amount of promoting from within, but take a closer look at your current personnel who have learned the products, the culture, and are familiar with teams and key player within the company. More promotion from within will reduce the turnover, which seems to be growing in the very recent past.

    Pros

    The software itself is great and the customer service is excellent, so you are very comfortable promoting it. You work hard, but it is a welcoming culture and easy to feel part of the team.

    Cons

    There are a lot of products, so it takes some time to really understand all of them when you first come on board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability is a little confusing at times. It seems like there are multiple people responsible for the same thing. That is of course better than no one being accountable for things, but it can make the process of getting from point A to point B unclear.
