Approves of CEO

I worked at Informatica full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good benefits - 401(k), medical, dental, vision, etc.
Great co-workers.
Ability to work from home.
Nice new office in Redwood City.

Cons

Marketing upper management laid people off then immediately backfilled those positions (illegal?) which created a sense of mistrust and unease. People were eager to throw each other under the bus, but very slow to make decisions in fear that they would misstep. People worked themselves to the bone running in circles for upper management - no work/life balance. Low productivity and morale.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with seasoned pros in sales
    Many enablement opportunities - great sales resources
    Opportunity to sell to the largest enterprises in the world
    Sales Leadership is sound, visionary, and realistic...no cheap psych-up (most of the time)

    Cons

    Comp plan lacks incentive muscle - pay is ok, but strategically restrictive
    You're at the bottom of the pyramid, so you must be vigilant to secure reward

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging a healthy blend of persistence, knowledge, and calculated risk-taking.
