I have been working at Informatica full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Open door to management.
Very flexible work environment with telecommuting available for most roles.
Excellent compensation and benefits package.
Team-based work environment.

Cons

Most of those working here entered with the primary skills required for the job. Training is sporadic without a comprehesive education plan.
Too much time spent on conference calls for most positions, which reduces productivity.

Advice to Management

Offer paths to career advancement with the addition of more training and shadowing opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Now that McGee is gone maybe the company will return to treating the sales organization like they have value. Charles Race is a good guy and will add value

    Cons

    Very weak sales management. Quick to blame employees not the lack of innovation over the last few years. No real process just tons of reporting which sales management only uses to bash employees with not to help improve the sales process

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a real strategy and implement. Try to innovate not just repackage products with today's buzzwords Create consistent pricing If you want to be a billion dollar company act like one
