    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

    Manager/Team is very helpful.
    Good work/Life balance.
    No micro management from my manager.

    Cons

    No information about the different facilities available to employees.
    No fun activities.(One Fussball table + 2 TT table for the entire Bangalore office.)
    Better to have subsidized food than the currently available free food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many top level employees are leaving, and this is causing a lot of worries for the lower level employees.
    Don't understand the policy of hiring for QA profile from local colleges, and providing dev profile to IITs, IIITs and NITs.
    Better compensation for Referrals.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible organization, doesn't micro-manage, lots of flexibility in roles, good products. The organization is in a good space for a software company, and it has a lot of growth potential

    Cons

    Internal systems need improving, some stronger integration between different business units would help in growing the scope of their opportunities in the data management space

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A full push on moving from a tools company to a solution company is a must if the comany is to continue the growth expected as an organization.

    Pros

    Full support throughout the organization to help you with daily challenges. Values that are lived by that you can feel within the whole Org. Perks like car program, newest tech gadgets (IPhone 5s/6, MacBook if wished...) Office culture is open and inviting to be creative and focus on important things rather than do micromanagement

    Cons

    Few management changes that have been ongoing over the last years due to restructuring and growth of the organization needs adoption and flexibility from employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look on long term success rather then Quarter2Quarter improvements.
