    Pros

    At one time was somewhat responsive even though it was always remote and not on site resources, for HR, not good

    Cons

    Any managers working at any other mature high tech company seems to be more on top of HR issues, policies and processes than the HR at Informatica. Its unfortunate.

    I worked at Informatica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My immediate manager was great. I was underpaid, and she recognized it. Worked hard to give me raises and bonuses.

    They also took us all to Puerto Rico and Thailand.

    Cons

    It went private and the culture drastically changed. The company got really cheap. People who loved the company and were there for a long time started to leave because only certain people were given incentives to stay after the move to go private.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your people.

    Pros

    Company has amazing technology and great people. Customers want to actually talk to you as this is a very hot space right now. A lot of freedom.

    Cons

    The location of their office is too far north. (Austin, Texas location)

    Advice to Management

    Could attract much younger, better talent if office was in a better place.

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Products are best in class, and the company has a great reputation. Great technology. Plenty of talented and nice people. Commissions are not capped.

    Cons

    Ever since Informatica went private equity in 2015, the Solutions Consultant job has been declining in multiple ways. They are continually being asked to carry more responsibility while compensation is not competitive. A 3% yearly raise on your base salary is the most you can expect, and you would only get that if you walk on water. The majority of Solutions Consultants get 0-1% raises, and that's only on the base salary. Benefits are adequate at best and have been declining over time. Working evenings and weekends are a must.

    No equity is shared except for the very high-level employees. Bad quarters and years are felt by all in the company, while the spoils of good quarters and years are only enjoyed by senior management. From the Solutions Consultant vantage point, it always feels like the company is going broke even when the company is beating expectations.

    I would recommend waiting until Informatica is bought or goes public before joining as a Solutions Consultant.

    Advice to Management

    None. Despite the substandard treatment of the Solutions Consultants, they seem to be able to attract and retain people. Go figure.

    Pros

    Reasonable support from management. Friendly work environment. Good company culture. Somewhat flexible schedule when personal matters arise otherwise required in office.

    Cons

    Management lured us here us with enticing claims we could achieve quote by wide margin. Quotas and expectations are still not reasonable. Significantly low number of reps achieved quota. Even worse it has not been addressed by management. Many are burnt out due to high demand for KPIs. Management more traditional than places I’ve encountered with dress code. Frequently thanked from management but hardly shown the gratitude.

    Advice to Management

    Fixing the cons would be a great start
