Was awesome and Great Company & slowly slipping down

Employee (Former Employee)
Bangalore

I worked at Informatica full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou have liberty to work on anything you choose
Very nice people
Average salary better then many companies in Bangalore
Work life balance..
Very good management at RWC, great vision.. Great product..

ConsManagement recruits only their known people ex IT in Bangalore is getting filled with known resources to the boss or back door entry . Majority of the IT managers are from one previous company where IT director worked.
Lots of politics (yes exists everywhere ;-) but this is getting too much
People are hardly recognised for their talent/expertise
Slowly slipping from one great environment to below average environment
People are frequently asked to leave and their position is filled with known resources/contractors

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk less and do more particularly valid to IT Management. Deliver what company needs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Only good for managers and above!

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at Informatica full-time for more than a year

Pros1. Work life balance.
2. free lunch
3. casual wear

Apart from 1 , any product company will provide 2 and 3 and will have a better pay.

Cons1. Compared to other PRODUCT companies, pay is very very less for people with skill and experience .
2. The HR are full of LIES when hiring. NEVER EVER BELIEVE THEM!
3. The salary structure is not well defined when they hire you. ASK for the split up. Insist on it.
4. Have to beg 1000 times for a proper hike.
5. Their bonus is not always 100 percent as told during hiring.
6. Have to go through politics when getting your idea approved (even if you are in an R & D)
7. No work from home policy standardized in the company. Have to BEG managers!

Advice to Senior Management1. Be honest.
2. Pay well if you have to retain talent.
3. Create policies like other product companies if you want to reach the 1 billion mark.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

good company to learn, to grow will take time though

Product Specialist (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at Informatica full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThis company gives decent salary when compared to counterparts in the industry. tries to keep the employees happy by taking them on an international tour once in an year. Newer lays off during recession.

ConsIt takes a lot of time for promotions. Your views are not completely considered unless you are one among the top gunners.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to catch up with competition in the industry. before competitors come up with a new technology try to have it implemented in Informatica

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good Culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Redwood City, CA (US)

I have been working at Informatica full-time for less than a year

ProsGood team culture
Emphasis on training
Good team and a productive environment
Nice work space and loaded laptops.
Pool and ping pong tables.

ConsSince is located all the way in Redwood City at the Pacific Shores center, the commute is kind of taxing. Since people who are new to the Bay Area prefer to stay further down south in Sunnyvale or Santa Clara, commuting to work is really bad.
Compensation is mediocre and not top notch

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good company

Account Executive (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

I have been working at Informatica full-time for more than a year

ProsCulture, compensation, benefits were all very good. They treat their sales people like gold and want them to make money. Tons of resources to help you succeed and will do what it takes to get a deal done.

ConsVery tech driven with lack of go to market strategy. Too many processes for sales management that half the time mgmt didn't utilize in Salesforce. Some managers didn't have a clue how to manage a team and more spreadsheet focused.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a team and not just another row in your spreadsheet. Connect with individuals at a personal level.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
