    Pros

    Depending on your group, terrific managers who care, and try to make sure you are recognized. Secondly the ad hoc benefits are really nice, as they really want folks to have a work life balance.

    Cons

    Fragmented teams (global). Slow professional growth

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in communication strategies. Good people, but sometimes feels disenfranchised when communication b/t the various groups breaks down.

    I worked at FICO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sharp co-workers; remote/flexible work opportunities; solid salary/compensation; decent Fidelity 401K retirement plans.

    Cons

    Zero work-life balance, consistent 60+ hour weeks are not uncommon; required client overnight, holiday and weekend events happen frequently and time is not reimbursed/compensated; absent company culture, especially for remote workers; terrible medical/dental benefits; behind the curve with internal tools and technology; annual bonus payouts are touted during the interview process, but not guaranteed; Director/Executive level management is solely focused on client billing and dollars, and exhibit very little to no interest in their team member's best interests; transparency, trust and communications is lacking across internal cross-organizational teams; rewards/recognition for doing great work is non-existent; burn out will happen. In summary, I wouldn't recommend FICO as a career choice to my worst enemy.
