    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at FICO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sharp co-workers; remote/flexible work opportunities; solid salary/compensation; decent Fidelity 401K retirement plans.

    Cons

    Zero work-life balance, consistent 60+ hour weeks are not uncommon; required client overnight, holiday and weekend events happen frequently and time is not reimbursed/compensated; absent company culture, especially for remote workers; terrible medical/dental benefits; behind the curve with internal tools and technology; annual bonus payouts are touted during the interview process, but not guaranteed; Director/Executive level management is solely focused on client billing and dollars, and exhibit very little to no interest in their team member's best interests; transparency, trust and communications is lacking across internal cross-organizational teams; rewards/recognition for doing great work is non-existent; burn out will happen. In summary, I wouldn't recommend FICO as a career choice to my worst enemy.

    Cons

    Disparate locations making working a little more difficult to get things done.
