    Good Company & Great place to work

    Senior Director (Former Employee)
    Redwood City, CA

    Pros- Very good leadership team
    - Best product in market
    - Excellent benefits
    - Nice office building
    - Healthy work environment
    - Manageable workload
    - Free gym membership
    - Pays above the 50 percentile of market comp

    Cons- Growth is slowing and stock is in decline
    - Title inflation at senior levels
    - Employees are often not considered for internal leadership opportunities. Certain Execs prefer to recruit outside and appear to be hiring their buddies from previous jobs.
    - Company is getting more "mature". There is an increasing number of policies and process. This is not necessarily a Con but makes it more difficult to get work done and may be slowing growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job overall.

    Excellent company to work for. Innovative, market leader, independent. In the data area and data is the new oil.

    Senior Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
    Nieuwegein (Netherlands)

    ProsGreat atmosphere of a company that wants to stay ahead of the game and stay the market leader in data integration. Lot's of innovation, so lot of room for personal growth.

    ConsBecause they are becoming bigger and bigger, sometimes you see the effect of a bigger company meaning longer communication lines although i must admit, it has never hindered me in my work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep investing in innovation not only by aquiring new technology but also invest in proven technology otherwise in a couple of years competition is going to take over.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent culture, growing company!!

    Senior Talent Acquisition Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsDepending on your role, they are flexible on work schedule. Great work/life balance. Even for remote employees, they try to loop you in to town hall events and meetings - they even stream them so you feel like you're sitting in the room! Great benies, competitive pay. Management seems interested in what you have to say.

    ConsTime off is on an accrual basis. I came from an open time off policy where you took what you needed. However, you still get an ample amount of time in your first year. You receive more as your tenure increases. Wouldn't mind seeing a more flexible pto policy.

    One of the Best places to work

    Senior User Experience Designer (Current Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsThe company values user experience design in all their products. There is recognition for your job from all levels of management. Employee welfare is taken into account in all company decisions. Appraisal is very transparent and it is really an appraisal for your work and not just a name sake process. Flexible working hours.

    ConsThere is constant change in the senior management. The vision is not focused. The Vision is getting distorted with each management coming into position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen there is a change in the Top Management, make sure that the predecessor's vision and goals have been met, before trying to put in new vision.

    Informatica is an Excellent Company to Work For.

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee)
    Redwood City, CA

    ProsPositive Work Environment. Career Growth Opportunities. Great People. Ideal Benefits. Nice Campus and General Location.

    ConsNot as well known of a company as others in the Silicon Valley. Pay scale is more on the conservative side, but still reasonable.
