    I have been working at Informatica full-time

    Pros

    Staff culture is welcoming to newcomers,
    Compensation is competitive
    Good benefits package/onsite gym/Free breakfast and coffee etc.
    Facilities are new and nice

    Cons

    The company feels pretty old blood for being in tech, but promoting a younger feel- so theres a bit of tension there,
    C-levels plans are not often transparent
    Redwood City is a bit stuffy
    If you're not working directly with the product, you are kept in the dark about what exactly it does.

    Pros

    Company is making an effort to build more teaming events and have more fun at work

    Cons

    Although the future is always uncertain, as a privately held company, our feels especially so. It doesn't feel like it's being built for the long-run. Just trying to get to the next step - either an IPO or being sold. Only senior level management get equity.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for trying to listen to the employees in our surveys. Keep doing more of that.

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

    Pros

    *Feels like a throwback to when big companies actually cared about customers, their success and the support they give . This goes is embodied throughout the organization from shipping to sales to support.
    *Great products - ranked #1 by Gartner/Forrester, etc. in 7 different product areas
    *Constant investment and enhancements to products & in new solutions.
    *Easy to sell the best solution with the best support

    Cons

    *Hard to get that first meeting
    *Customers often don't know what we do besides integration
    *We do a horrible job educating our customers on our solutions
    *Sometimes team member abuse unlimited vacation/flex time

    Advice to Management

    Stock purchase plan/stock incentive options would be helpful. Odd - but not hearing aid coverage if you need that.

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

    Pros

    The money
    Great office (new and modern)
    Product is a game changer in the IT industry
    The company is cool even though we don't advertise it
    Great benefits (401K, great insurance, unlimited vacay, relaxed work environment- there are a lot here).
    It's easy to move up if you work hard
    A lot of smart successful people work here and always come back to here if they leave

    Cons

    For my role- long hours
    Currently my team is stretched thin so it can be challenging to handle bandwidth- this isn't your typical 9-5 job, you are never done with work and at least on my side the projects never end
    Even with unlimited vacay- I never have the chance to take it- or if I do, I have to keep working the whole time.
    We tend to over complicate everything product related here and make it tough for other companies to want to work with us
    Our solutions can be complicated and it's a challenge to learn about our solutions as our training is not up to par
    We have internal conflicts often (in my department) that hold up the business and thus lead to loosing to competitors
    We tend to ask a million questions before we actually help a client and it's frustrating as a sales rep

    Advice to Management

    Improve our social media and show us as the company that solves problems as we do
    Improve training
    Improve our channel program
    Hire more people so work balance can improve- I always work at least 10 hours a day
