    I have been working at Informatica full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture! Everyone is on board to help realize the company mission - make our customers successful by helping them harness the power of their data! Great management, supportive and always helpful peers across the globe, comp and benefits at par with the best. I haven't worked at the company HQ or offices so can't say much about that.

    Cons

    None! I try not to look for things to complain as that is an addictive mindset and appreciate all the amazing things at this company!

    Advice to Management

    Stick to what you're doing I.e. Drive the company towards the trends of the market and what our customers truly need to be successful. We are all in this together!

    I worked at Informatica full-time

    Pros

    I have been working at Informatica full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not that I can think of, after privatization things started heading south.

    Cons

    Office politics, non-strategic company wide directions were cascaded down after change of key leaders in Corporate, not sure if Company is heading to the right direction

    I have been working at Informatica full-time

    Pros

    Great people and benefits. Between FTO and working remotely, I am afforded a busy but comfortable work/life balance. I find myself always learning new technologies and products as the company pivots. I am enjoying my time with Informatica and would not hesitate to recommend to a friend.

    Cons

    Sometimes internal communication can be slow and some recent changes left employees with many questions while news was pending.

    Professional Services seems oddly siloed in many different ways (geographically, product, industry, etc). This doesn't directly effect me, but it seems like something that could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Solid 2-week ramp-up, the great management team who are available to help and coach at any time, an amazing collaboration between teams and coworkers. There isn't a day you will spend at Informatica where you don't learn something new. The team and people you work with truly want you to succeed and everyone is your cheerleader. I've never been happier in a workplace to date, and I picked up my entire life to move to Austin and take on this position. I can honestly say it was one of the best choices I ever made for myself.

    Cons

    It gets a little cold in the building.

    Advice to Management

    Your guidance, genuine care, and open doors are appreciated more than y'all may be aware. You rock!

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

    Pros

    Work life balance is awesome. The teams work really well together. Benefits is average. Perks include access to an awesome gym

    Cons

    None that I can think of. This is probably the best company that I had worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Went private, so equity is a bit questionable

    Pros

    Great Team and clear career path set in front of you. Management was definitely supportive during my short time there

    Only reason I left was that for personal reasons, I had to move temporarily back to Canada

    Cons

    Austin headquarters was not the most ideal location (far from downtown). If you're going to work in Texas than you're going to need a car.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, you're doing great

    Incredible manager who fostered a great team environment. Great health benefits and other perks

    Cons

    Slow times were really slow. Too many loops to get simple answers. Departments had these long drawn out processes that were inefficient
