    Pros

    Best company I ever worked for. Awesome offering with major investement in exciting new technologies, so you really have market leading competitive products to sel! Great company ethos and culture, they really treat you as a valued individual and corporate social responsibility and other initiatives are not just window dressing. Spirits in the office are high, so you want to be there, everybody supports each other, the structure is there to support the sale with pre-sales, industry consulting and specialists in most areas. Systems are mostly modern and some weaknesses are adressed. Clear processes for governance and approvals. More training after the US sheepdip onboarding - online and face to face, so you are really enabled as a sales person to achieve reasonable targets and exceed TCV .

    Cons

    Still looking for any major one's, but all recommendations for improvement are desired and followed up by management.

    Advice to Management

    Small enhancements in onboarding, so organisation and processes are explained early on would accelearate time to efficiency even more!

    Pros

    Interesting technology which is rapidly being developed, market leader, good team of people. The means to do a proper job are there.

    Cons

    Since going private the bean counters have been in charge, and the atmosphere has degraded. Lots of good people have left or are considering leaving.

    Advice to Management

    The capital of a technology company is its people - that might be a cliche but is no less true for that. At the moment you're destroying the heart of what was once a great company.

    - great culture

    - strong product range
    - good market position
    - favourable customer perception
    - investing in upgrading UK office facilities

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Focus on outcomes achieved by each team member and reward/promote accordingly. Failing to do so drives the best performers into the arms of Informatica's competitors.
