    Pros

    Interesting technology, good vision, smart people.

    Cons

    Mediocre Salary Okay benefits Too much politics. Promotion is mostly based on how well you play politics rarely on merit. Old boys network. Teams are silo'ed No work life balance (sales driven: sales makes promises to customers and developers are expected to make it happen. Working weekends, holidays and when you take vacation is the norm) CEO thinks work life balance is being able to work from home Constantly hiring freezes. Reqs are lost very quickly even after someone leaves. Exec Management wants even more from less people. Very dollar driven. Employees are not valued very well. Frequent layoffs.

    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    Team and work group synergy is great; teams are self-driven and manage project delivery fairly well, Agile Scrumban is the evolving development methodology. There is a documented product delivery life cycle (PLC) methodology for software products - when it's followed, product development runs like clockwork.

    Cons

    To clarify, this pertains to the Product technology ooferings (not the "Scores" business. A great PLC methodology exists, but actually translating market requirements to a roadmap plan, then again to an executable release schedule, needs help. When features are presented to development, the agile trained teams work well together to deliver; but the managers responsible driving the requirements and plan (product marketing, product management) are too "hands-off" and don't participate as active stakeholders from development to delivery.
