    Pros

    Pay is good.

    Benefits is good.

    Flexible working hours.

    Lots of intelligent people (for now).

    Cons

    Company vision is great. Providing a clear execution plan on how to reach that goal is lacking.

    Senior management wants different departments to work together but for a big company, this idea just becomes a hindrance rather than an advantage. Cross department communication and cooperation has a lot of room to improve.

    Company seems to be focus more on the amount of features rather than the quality of features.

    Intelligent people are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Just look at the trend graph in Glassdoor. It should give a good picture of the overall state of the company in terms of employee engagement.

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

    Pros

    1. People are genuinely nice and cooperative and director/senior management doesn't macro manage
    2. New leadership has an open door policy and is trying to keep it honest
    3. Less stress, option of working from home and no restriction in taking off days

    Cons

    1. New leadership is struggling to define a company perspective, if it's a 100% software product company or a company who wants to partner with their client in business strategy and become part of their journey in business success.
    2. Different groups within the org. works in silos, big gap between sales, strategy and product development
    3. There are people in the leadership who has very little clue about the ground reality and what the market is looking for

    Advice to Management

    1. Try to strategies and manage the company as one and fill in the gaps within different groups like sales and strategy
    2. Do more research and value proposition when buying another company or product as recent buys are making no sense and hard to sell to the client
