    Pros

    Supportive Management Team. Not rude and nice to their people in most of the cases

    Cons

    Some Politics, although it is not a lot . We should discourage it and keep the environment clean to breath.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the open door policy alive and call the lowest level employees also for their one on one

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Informatica is positioned in a very strong segment of the market and has leading technologies in all sectors it covers. Staff is focused around making a difference, and the focus on customer success is very strong. Good comp plans.

    Cons

    Still struggling with EMEA organization and going through normal growth pains. Two steps forward, one steps back when it comes to acting upon its vision. Sometimes marketing gets too far away from the actual products, making it difficult for customers to connect the dots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue approach with freedom under responsibility and don't be afraid to be in it for the long run. Make sure managers continue focus on employee and business development, rather than getting stuck in admin.

    Former Employee - Lead Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at Informatica full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Almost Politics free environment
    Decent technical growth.
    Slow but steady salary hikes. Everybody gets some hike here

    Cons

    1. The salary is not competitive enough.
    2. Quite a slow moving company...perhaps another oracle in the making
    2. Work is not outstanding. It will be hard to justify your years of experience with your actual experience.
    3. The domain that company works in not hot anymore. You'll get many takers in the industry.
