    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.

    I worked at Informatica full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity for company growth, the people in general, work-life balance, the pay and compensation are good

    Cons

    Some great but some horrible low-level managers, especially when "promoted" from being individual performers.
    Field training is lengthy, boring, and doesn't prepare for the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When the manager has been an employee for a long time, and is an experienced veteran but a first-time manager, the management team needs to actually teach the guy how to be a manager and leader. Forced into management = bad manager.

    Also, when transitioning people, the communication from managers to their staff was horribly poor. Need clear written info when people join and leave the teams and organization.
