    I worked at Informatica full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large portfolio to sell. Once you get in the clients door with a solution, there's much more opportunity to expand. Most all solutions are Gartner Magic Quadrant leaders

    Cons

    Since going private, pressure to perform and shorten sales cycles has only increased. Management didn't care about strategy and enablement. Only cared about discussing pipeline and booking gaps and how you intended to fill them with no suggestions of their own such as having regular solution use case discussions

    Advice to Management

    The solutions are complex and take a long time for a new rep to onboard. Once you have someone trained in the solutions, you should invest in enablement anywhere you perceive shortcomings rather than having a revolving hiring door assuming that that next rep will be your solution.

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

    Pros

    There are very few good people left at Informatica.

    Cons

    Not the same company held under its original ownership. No teamwork across organizations are run like the wildest with no accountability. Product and sales teams have no vision to lead the market but chase market leaders to look relevant.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management should stop the finger pointing and take a hard look at their own performance and hold themselves accountable.

    Some recent changes at the top management leadership team in the last couple of years can be a distraction but it is also opportunity to acquired new talent to drive growth.

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

    Pros

    Great People! - I truly enjoy the people that I get to work with, across multiple departments and continents.

    Good Benefits - On-par with the industry; actually these just got a little better come 2018. Pay could be more but isn't that always the case?

    Respected Company - Having Informatica on my resume will definitely help me out if/when I need to transition away. Lots to learn and working for the leader in all 5-markets we truly compete in is a great opportunity.

    Career Growth - Although career path isn't obvious, if you make it your mission to move up or laterally, it's on you to build your case and make it happen. If people see you care, they'll be more willing to help you out. So, there is room to grow one's career.

    Great products - again, we're the leader in the industry for Enterprise Cloud Data Management for a reason and it's exciting to see what we've got coming up for our customers and the industry in the coming years!

    Austin Office! - brand new office, tons of unique work & collaboration spaces, kitchens, game room, cold brew on-tap.

    Cons

    Location - Although I'm glad our office is not downtown (have you seen the morning traffic?), I wish that we would have at least moved a little bit closer towards city center.

    Compensation - As with any company that pays out commissions, MBOs, etc. there have been hiccups that are VERY hard to ignore/forgive (although it appears that we're working on this; we shall see).

    No Equity - Although we went back private, it's too bad that equity isn't something being discussed (however, we are doing some other things in the benefits area (401k specifically) that make up for it).

    Training/On-boarding - I know that this is constantly being worked on but it still falls short of expectations, at least regarding transitioning roles

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting your employees first (benefits, pay, recognition, learning opportunities, growth, work flexibility, etc.). Be even more transparent regarding direction, hiring, product development, company plans, etc.

    We do these things fairly well but as with any company, they could always be better :)
