Fun place to work, free food
Accountant (Current Employee), San Diego, CAMarch 20, 2014
Pros: free lunch during busy schedule, free gym, free food & beverages in breakroom
Cons: no room for advancement, minimal to no raises
Come into office and do what's required and bosses usually don't bother you.

Company tries to boost employee morales by hosting a lot of fun event throughout the year (St. Patrick Day, Cinco De Mayo, Octoberfest, etc..). At the events they hold contests, giveaways, provide food, beer, and entertainment. It's fun.

Overall rating
Microsoft Systems Engineer II (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 8, 2013
Pros: compensation is generally better than some companies
Cons: low employee value by executives
Fair Isaac has very good employees that work hard for the company but the overall management is no better than any large corporation in that "employees are numbers" and a means to a higher bonus.

A lot of friendly and helpful co-workers. Most managers are easy to work for. Advancement is slow and raises are not always given.
Bus Processing Engineer (Former Employee), Shoreview, MNFebruary 22, 2013
Pros: casual atmosphere, people are friendly, good coffee and other beverages available for no charge. hours are flexible, depending on manager.
Cons: healthcare benefits costlier each year, frequent layoffs, if job level lower than mgmt., you may not always get a raise, some internal cliques - as is common in most companies
Overall, I enjoyed working for FICO. Initially the benefits were great, but as time went on they worsened. The company can't really be blamed for that as the new federal laws come in to play.
Co-workers, more often than not, extremely helpful and kind.
Training not always easy to come by. I relied most heavily on co-workers with more experience when – more... introduced to a new area to be learned. The upside is the availability of online learning tools.
The majority of the managers that I worked with were very helpful.
It is difficult at times to get promotions and raises.
The company assesses reviews on a bell curve, meaning that 2% of employees will get a bad review, and very few allowed to get really good reviews. Most people will fall into the mid category of 'achieved expectations'.
The work/life balance seems more dependent on the team you are on and the role within that team. – less

A fun environment now turned between a rock and a corporate hard-place
Engineer (Current Employee), San Diego, CAOctober 24, 2012
Pros: co-workers, challenging problems
Cons: upper management, resourcing, long term decision processes, tricky training programs
Work 8-12 hour shifts, days, nights or weekends to meet deadlines. Co-workers are the reason to come in. Work can be challenging and rewarding. Hardest part of the job is watching all your co-workers being let go or outsourced.

Amazing company that provides plenty of growth, learning and culture.
Executive Assistant to EVP & Office Manager (Former Employee), Boston, MAAugust 1, 2012
Fair Isaac was the best experience I have ever had during my career. There was never a typical day at work, which provided me with an outstanding opportunity to learn, grow and be better at my craft daily. The management team was instrumental in providing all the necessary tools to perform your job well and help you to always strive to be better. My – more... colleagues were the best and continually mentored the staff. We were all a team and treated each other like the client. The more difficult parts of the job were juggling the many responsibilities as a result of lay-offs during tough economic times. You took on whatever was necessary to make sure the job was done and done well. I will always be greatful for having met such a brilliant and talented group of individuals that treated everyone on a level playing ground. – less

Good place to work
Analytic Software-Scientist I (Current Employee), Bangalore, KAJune 27, 2014
Work pressure is just fine. There is no job security . Life is all messed up if you are stuck with few specific teams and managers .so kindly contact the employees and get to know about the manager and the work in advance.

US Financial Services Software Company
Profeesional Services Manger / Support Manager (Former Employee), BirminghamJuly 9, 2012
Pros: good benefits, good colleagues, good clients
Cons: globalised matrix management, lack of attention to product quality
In contact with Clients to determine requirements, design solutions, identify and correct issues.
Working in a very small team in UK with links to other teams globally.

Most enjoyable - the clients and helping them to get what they need
Hardest part - coordinating global resources to deliver.

In my view the global delivery model is too cumbersome – more... to be sufficiently responsive - clients need high quality local teams, communicating and engaging productively. – less
