    I have been working at Informatica full-time

    Pros

    I love working at Informatica. When I first joined, I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. Having finally hitting the one year mark, I'm so glad that I took a leap of faith to join Informatica. I love the global presence, unlimited FTO, benefits, and amazing coworkers! Along with those great things, I love the team and management that I have. I feel like I'm supported with anything and everything that I do. I'm not treated as another number, but treated as someone who matters. I truly feel like I'm a specialist at my job, and that I impact the company in a great way!

    Cons

    Nothing. Love working here, and have nothing to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you're doing. Put your employees first, and trust them to be the experts that they are. If you treat everyone right, they'll continue to work hard for you, and support the company as brand ambassadors.

    Pros

    Working with a great team. Company growing fast. New office, snacks, coffee/espresso. Occasional lunches, office celebrations. Good work/life balance. Ability to work remotely with management approval.

    Cons

    Some churn, but that's to be expected with the growth.

    Advice to Management

    Great focus on the right areas for R&D. Continue to invest in R&D to make the goals happen.

  4. "Grinding to help company go public without reward"

    Pros

    Good business outlook for the company. There is a lot of speculation and hopes for an IPO soon, assuming we actually get something out of it.

    Cons

    No stock options or RSUs... yes you read that right. A Bay Area tech company with no stock incentive for employees. Total Comp is pitiful compared to companies in the area... your peers at other tech companies are making 50%+ higher salaries than you on the basis of stock grants alone. Everyone's holding out hope that management will do right by us during an IPO.... if not there will be a big race to the door.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth because everyone's grinding hard every day to bring in record profits for you. Think about it... you build everyone up about how well the company's doing. You don't think people are going to wonder where the money's going? No, getting a prorated bonus 6 months early is not a reward... there are many tech companies who have a quarterly or biannual bonus policy as standard practice (you used to be one). For all this talk about being an innovative company you need to bring your comp policies up to standard for a high-growth tech company.

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

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth and development IF you pursue them on your own.
    Benefits are pretty great from my POV. 401k, health insurance, Ultd PTO / flex-work
    Industry leading company but target is on our back to stay on top.
    People who leave the company tend to come back; pretty great culture and teams.

    Cons

    Internal promotions get the shaft on pay versus hiring outside.
    Privately held company means no RSUs or stock potential until re-IPO.
    Self-guided career path but the options are there if you seek them out.
    You can feel the areas where the company is "cutting the fat", then there's areas/people where you can't believe they are still wasting money (but that's every company).
    Nothing particularly stands out as a con, at least nothing you wouldn't see at any other company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on investing in your people (pay), your service (literally invest in service) and your products (we do a decent job of this). Market has potential to catch up to us rather quickly. Lots of smaller companies trying to compete. A lot of the changes financially are noticeable but then again, a lot of the changes structurally have made decent gains. Transparency, transparency, transparency (what are we doing next?).

    Pros

    Hands down the best company to work for. WFH option, good package, good medical coverage, 401K match at 50% increased to 6K per annum, flexi holiday option instead of regular set of vacations per year. Also, provides 4 month of paid parental leave to mother/father.

    Cons

    WFH can seem disconnected at times but obviously, its more of an advantage than it could ever be a disadvantage

    I worked at Informatica full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Still the best in the overall data integration market. Good data platforms around ETL, DQ, MDM, etc.

    Cons

    Tech: Not so good at cloud integration which is where everything is moving.
    Business: The main problem is that the overall strategy here is to cut costs in order to do another IPO to get a payout for the current owners. Because of this there has been little to no innovation in their products as well as a massive outflow of talent and tribal knowledge. At this point they are still the best mostly by default, size, and sheer momentum.

    Advice to Management

    Run this company they way it used to be run. Stop coasting on your prior momentum.
