    Pros

    decent comp plan if you have the right territory good food in cafeteria nice views from coffee shop

    Cons

    NA sales Management shows no value for the employee

    Advice to Management

    clean house on the empty suits running sales for North America, they spend more time tearing sales people down that building a sales organization that sells to the customer needs, ELA's only in the on premise world, slight of hand accounting to build up cloud revenue

    Pros

    Competitive pay, awesome benefits, solid industry awarded product.

    Cons

    Marketing is clueless. Senior sales leadership has its head in the sand when it comes to challenges in the Field. Ramp time is really long because training is nearly non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for more reports and busy work and the rest of your talent will walk out the door. Support the field, don't grind them into oblivion.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits including low cost for health insurance, high 401k match, pet insurance, dental. Very competitive salary with variable compensation that can greatly increase yearly income, care about employees by offering free fitbits, unlimited vacation, emphasis on work/life balance.

    Cons

    The structure can be a bit flat with opportunities to move up limited with such low turn over but if a person really strives to excel they will be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing and please don't ever change and I'm sure most of us will be employees until the day we retire.

    Pros

    Great culture, intern events, great people. The intern program was well organized and they really took care of all of the interns. Informatica is a great company to work for and I hope that doesn't change as it grows.

    Cons

    There wasn't really any real feedback or review at the conclusion of the internship. Some the managers weren't accessible.


  7. Good company that seems to be turning around by getting back to its roots.

    Pros

    useful products, good work environment, devoted following by the customers who have been using the products for many years in the traditional areas.

    Cons

    some loss of focus due to challenging m&a activities that add too much complexity for customers and not enough value to warrant continued investments.

    Advice to Management

    go back to the basics and do that really well; you have the best products in the industry and are able to deliver the right things to customers if you just listen.

    Pros

    Well regarded by all the industry analysts Most products are class leaders No debt Delivers business value Loyal customers

    Cons

    Way too many layers of management Can't trust upper management after being told repeatedly that the company wasn't going to go private Upper management getting rich off of stock options and stock grants while everyone else fails to benefit from buyout Took a really low offer at $5.3 billion Lack of credibility from management Tremendous amounts of turnover Not so strong hires due to backlash from turnover Declining morale Ran off great management, brought in poor management that killed the culture and put the company on the path that has lead to the need to go private Rewarding executive management financially as they ruined the company Upper management out of touch with the workforce Lack of real leadership across the board in upper management No immediate vesting for 100% of stock awards Killing the employee stock purchase program at end of July instead of letting it continue until company is sold so the rank and file can at least make a few extra bucks off the deal General disappointment as the rank and file feel betrayed, lied to, and taken for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Since it's too late to fix things, the only advice to management is to enjoy the fruits of those stock options and stock grants that the sweat and hard work of the worker bees at Informatica helped make valuable. I hope those that are laughing to the bank can at least stop for a minute to think about those that aren't rich, who are fearful for their jobs, and are concerned about the company's future under the new ownership.
