    Pros

    - Great Work life balance.
    - Great people to work with- everyone was very welcoming and was willing to help me get up to speed with ways of the land.
    - The new employee orientation was a great way to introduce new employees to Sr. Level executives, including the CEO and CFO.
    - Competitive Pay
    - Flexible hours, I've been going to the gym at lunch time. The gym is a full service on premise gym that is provided free of charge. It is very comprehensive including full basketball court, swimming pool, classes and even a rock climing wall!
    - Open door policy
    - Diverse
    - Team activities and off-sites to reconnect and recharge

    Cons

    Traffic on the 101 can be a little bit challenging depending on where you live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bus/shuttle service with Wifi would help alleviate all the hrs spent in traffic!

    I worked at Informatica full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Small company culture with a friendly & fun atmosphere. In general the company focuses on execution and getting things done. There is good work life balance and a healthy stream of team building events. Good amount of training and personal growth opportunities available. Flexibility in moving around and relocating to the right team and project.

    Cons

    Some amount of saturation in mid-management and at times the decision making has been lethargic that has resulted in loss of momentum. There have been technical missteps around some of the projects over the years and folks have been slow to own up to that and correct them as it requires rocking the boat.

    Pros

    We work hard - but we also play hard and have fun. Company values are a great match - benefits package is excellent and always being improved. Our work facilities are new and highly functional. Management is very flexible and have a heightened awareness when it comes to work/life balance.

    Cons

    The past two quarters have been difficult but I have strong faith that management has made the correct changes to reverse the situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stay on the leading edge - competition is tough.

    Pros

    Fun, friendly, smart and supportive colleagues with very little hierarchical protocols. New and bright office space and plenty of training if you raise your hand.

    Cons

    With the rapid growth the company is experiencing you can easily get out of balance with work and life demands. Wearing too many is counterproductive in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the wide range in senior level and entry level people, some mandatory training is in order to close the skills gap and lessen the need to always be coaching.
