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

    Pros

    The experience in terms of work culture , technology vary quite a lot from department to department . I was lucky to be in a team that grew out around me from the time i joined. It was a flat, highly motivated team that was working on a newly acquired product, management and technology wise this team had very little overlap with rest of Informatica products. The team was flat structured, with good amount freedom to select our technology. The top management was driving us very hard but there was good raises and bonuses the whole time so it evened out. Overall it was good experience , but this is what a good team inside could be , experience in other teams could be quite different.

    Cons

    The top brass has metastatised in terms of new thoughts and ideas . They are mostly people that have come here after long stints in other big enterprises (Oracle/SAP) and/or Indian Services companies. There idea of tech is man management and view of the world is that of DB world of the 90's . They would boldly go forth branding their offerings with whatever is the flavour of the season "BIG DATA" , "CLOUD" and what-have-you but one good look reveals that these "concepts" are some scattered fogs in their horizon.
             The technological and design choices of most mainstream Informatica products reflect their personalities and dynamics of their relationships .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not every company gets to have an early-mover advantage in a sector that is born twice. There is an incredible opportunity to clean the Aegean stables and sail while the tide still stays.

    less freshers and more experienced workforce

    Cons

    Pestering co-workers.

    Very tight deadlines and skewed workload on a few people while others cool off being in office.
    Very little scope for merit and values the number of years people spent in company more than any other parameter.

    Pros

    1. Work life balance.
    2. brilliant co-workers, they are very helpful .
    3. Lots of opportunities to prove yourself.
    4. Informatica makes every employee feel that he/she is very special to the company that becomes a booster for a quality delivery(At least that is what happened with me )

    Cons

    1. As I joined fresh from college i found it a little difficult to adjust with the culture and understand the products initially, So may be a basic training on this would have been nice.
    2. There is very little opportunity portray your cultural talent here, so may be people like me to loves to participate in cultural events will be disappointed .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not sure whether it is only my observation or it's the culture here , I see only people from NIT or IIT gets positions for Dev( freshers ) , If other colleges also gets the similar opportunity then i think that will be great.
