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

Pros

Solid company, solid reputation. Great product. There is definitely a worker/manager culture so if you want a long-term job in the same position, this is a good fit for you.

Cons

I attempted at least 3 different times to advance my career within the company. Each time I was shot down with no solid, objective reason. The managers are pawns to the VP with no authority to really get things done themselves. They felt "since others like me" hadn't been successful at the position, I would automatically be unsuccessful at the position.

Advice to Management

Advance your people and take care of them. They might just stick around longer.
