A lot of friendly and helpful co-workers. Most managers are easy to work for. Advancement is slow and raises are not always given.
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 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.
