    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The products do what they are supposed to, the people are great and professional, the pay is competitive, the culture is friendly...honestly, it has everything you want in a company.

    Cons

    I personally find it a bit unfair when bonuses are tied to objectives that are completely out of your control (i.e. utilization for those in positions that don't control staffing or business development).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Informatica has historically done a good job of allowing for a good work-life balance. However, now that we are a billion dollar company, we need to make sure that processes, requirement certification/training, etc. are enforced in a way that people feel that can do work during work times and not during personal time. That is, if utilization is tied to bonuses but certification and other activities are considered overhead, you are forcing a great percentage of the people to do work during their personal time to protect their money. It's fine if people choose to do more than 40 hours a week of work, but by tying money into the mix, some people may feel that they are forced into a situation where they have to do this. This is a challenging problem to solve, but this needs to be handled carefully or else people will lose sight of the value of training/certification or the employees become disgruntled because their well being is being threatened.

    Pros

    Informatica has an impressive product portfolio, with a very well known brand and a huge customer base. As we all know there is no such thing as an easy sale, but it sure helps to have a very focused company behind you. It has an innovation DNA which is hard to find in similar companies. The benefits and fixed salary are very good. Great support from Administrative staff in general.

    Cons

    There is a lot of room for improvement regarding Territory planning and attribution to Sales Managers. The quest for massive pipeline generation tends to create some problems, as opportunities are not infinite in the companies. There is not an option of a corporate car, as other companies in the same level/size offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve ways to treat how opportunities detected in New Logos (Prospects) can be worked.

    Pros

    Excellent products and services. Amazing people. Free decision realm for great projects. Coworkers and management work close together with same company standards.

    Cons

    Based on high projects demands, there is very little time available for training and get into deep knowledge of products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes I felt a kinda lost at clients installations due to lack of training and of course no support from coworkers because they're also too busy.
