    I worked at Informatica full-time

    Thanks for your review. Not sure what "mishaps" you're referring to. We have had two blockbuster quarters in a row, we're winning awards from analysts and customers, and we just released our... More

    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!

    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

    Informatica Response

    Jun 16, 2017 – Senior Manager, Talent Acquisition Marketing & Employer Branding

    Thank you for your review. We should note that Glassdoor recently included Informatica on a list of the top employers for compensation and benefits. So, while we may be privately-owned, our people... More

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

    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

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

    Pros

    The company is going through a total transformation from branding, product plays to back office operations. You don't come across too many companies in your career which are going through a total make over.

    Flexible Time Off (FTO) is a big plus. Flexible working location option makes long working hours bearable.

    Cons

    While going through transformation, everything gets harder. The work hours tend to be long.

    We don't issue equity to employees below VP level which makes the recruiting a lot more harder.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider issuing equity to employees below VP level or increase compensation level if we want to stay competitive.

    Thank you for your review. You nailed it - Informatica truly is a "once in a lifetime" opportunity for all the reasons you cite. Work hours can be long at times, but that's why we have our FTO policy... More

    Pros

    The Benefits at Informatica were very good

    Cons

    Their cloud first sales mentality was/is very good but they are having too much trouble transitioning from their core, on-premise to cloud and subscription based sales.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Very nice office. Super gym.

    Cons

    Frequent changes in the IT Operations management made it hard to complete project work as well as day to day functions.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more PMs to get involved on the IT Ops side for projects and allow for additional head count when day to day tasks are at risk.

    Pros

    Great company that truly offers opportunities and recognises employee's hard work. Innovation is in the company's culture and great talent can be found there. I'm looking for the next Informatica big thing.

    Cons

    Informatica has become a large organisation, adapting to the market/demand takes more time. team spread across the world makes you work around the clock.
