    I worked at FICO full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you are in a smaller team with good management, it's great. But some of the bigger teams were known for "churn and burn" culture. Technology is exciting and was fun to work with. Vacation and work from home policy was really good.

    Cons

    The company tends to pigeon-hole you. In other words, you get a job and there is not much room for vertical or horizontal movement. 1-2 promotions in 10 years is considered growth. No real raises for most. Bonuses are just OK.

    Pros

    FICO is a leader in the industry and continues to grow and make waves in the fields of scoring, fraud, analytics etc. FICO remains an innovator right down to its core.

    Cons

    FICO makes every department seem like its own separate company due to all the politics involved with ownership over projects rather than what will make for the best results.

    I worked at FICO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Above average pay scale - Exposure to latest analytics technology - Great Holiday cruises

    Cons

    - Highly stressful environment with no regard for employees - The pay does not justify the long hours and poor work life balance - The second line of leadership is in charge as the first line is mostly traveling and has no visibility to what goes on in his absence - Need "actual" leaders who do not talk about one team member's performance to another - Highly unprofessional environment with the senior manager passing snide and derogatory remarks along with very unprofessional gestures /body language - HR is remote and has no voice. There is no concept of induction to the company. - Employees are left to the mercy of their Manager.
