    Pros

    Senior Management takes an active role in new hire training. It seems trivial, but really says a lot about what they think of their employees to take some time out to meet new hires each quarter.

    Cons

    Benefits are good, but not as good as i received at Oracle. But I do believe they are at least on par with average software companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for additional opportunities to engage field employees with corporate culture to maintain the bond and loyalty.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Leading technology, great people, decent pay, and good benefits. All coworkers really work as a team and work to help each other be successful, with the ultimate goal of making us all more $$. I'm on a team of incredibly smart indivuals that work great together and have lots of fun, at the same time.

    Cons

    As is the case in most any sales organization, the last minute fire-drills and demands for extended work time can get tiring and stressful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like to see an ongoing employer match to employee charitable contributions.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company attitude. Leadership is open, honest, and very enthusiastic. Good compensation and benefits. The company was very supportive when I moved and started working remotely after 3 years of employment. Product training, for the most part, is very good. Little to no office politics.

    Cons

    Not a huge con, but as a remote employee, I feel moving up in the company will be a challenge. Moving away from the office was my choice, so I cannot knock them too hard for this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep it up!

    Pros

    Informatica people are the best to work with! I have been so impressed by the sense of teamwork and the supportive environment as I learned the massive amount of information that's available for my product set.

    Cons

    It is difficult to understand where to go within the R&D ranks to get information or to pass along product issues. Feedback is also hard get back from those situations.
