    I worked at FICO full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    We provided valuable software to financial institutions. The technology was cutting edge. The entire campus enjoyed working with each other.

    Cons

    The only downside was when we hired a CEO from the outside and he gutted the company. Those were a couple of bad years for the employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at FICO

    Pros

    Casual relaxed work environment. Some interesting projects. Pay was OK and benefits were good. Nice work location in San Diego office.

    Cons

    Total lack of focus and product expertise in upper management. Does not recognize the value of quality employees or their technical skills and knowledge. Promotes based on politics and who you know. Recent downturn in economy lead to many layoffs which made coming to work everyday kind of nerve wracking.

    Pros

    Free Food, less workload, office location

    Cons

    Its not a company for people who want to learn and grow in their career , as company doesn't provide that opportunity. Especially, if you are in mid of your career. Company is too top heavy with many Directors and VPs , who are self centered and dont focus on learning and development of employees. Company is also not fair in terms of salary and benefit. Favoritism is at its peak in Bangalore office. More than work , fake people skills matter here. Hard work never pays only flattering to your boss pays. Company is overcrowded with no good quality work.

    I have been working at FICO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People Sleep in office hours on the floor after lunch, if you join Telugu lobby or Tamil lobby, snoring is allowed ,work from home allowed if you manager also does not come to office.Free food , although not edible every day you will find cockroach, mice etc, depends on your luck.People stay for 10-15 years without growth , work, opportunity.Management only outsources worthless jobs to India office so you can be assured that its not only you , all your colleagues are equally doing worthless jobs. You will see all 45 + aged people , which will impress you to show that this is retirement heaven. Yes indeed it is with some clause.

    Cons

    Well HR and management can throw you out when ever they want. Rotten Tech

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

    Pros

    Initial compensation was good, free food.

    Cons

    No-one to help regarding anything, no KT, no team hierarchy, only one boss per team and micro management. It does not seems to behave as an IT company, no respect to anyone, I have seen Manager yelling to senior team members in front of whole team. Lots of fresher and yes only 1 or 2 good projects, rest all are internal tool work. Very poor increment. Tactical firing of experienced members and hiring more and more freshers.
