Senior Writer / Committee Chairman (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 15, 2018
Generally nice people to work with. On the cusp of dealing with internet security and fraud. Generally, a secure feeling at work. I've not worked at this company for 5 years so I'm not sure what it's like now.

advancement is up to you at this company....if you're willing to put the time in and take the classes and learn....i felt as a woman, i could've risen to whatever position i wanted to, which was nice....the flip side of that though is you are paid salary....but by the time i was laid off, they were beginning to expect everyone to work a 60 hours week...developers an 80 hour week....and that wasn't the work/life balance i wanted to keep...it was better when i started as most everyone was working 40 hours a week, but it had changed
Long hours and management expect too much from their employees. They claim work/life balance but it does not exist. THere is no loyalty or commitment to their employees. A bit biased when is comes to promoting women.

While on two stints at Fair Isaac I found some amazingly talented people. The company at first was very employee driven but, later, as they shifted leadership, they shifted away from those things that made them a unique company to work for.
Stay away from the Consumer Scores division (myFICO)
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 24, 2018
This review is specifically for the Consumer Scores division (myFICO division). The other FICO divisions are much better, but not myFICO. myFICO is poorly managed by a several SVPs who are nothing but glorified paper pushers who sounded good but have zero leadership capabilities. It's a revolving door for a lot of the various departments especially Marketing and Product teams. There is absolutely no career path whatsoever regardless of how well you perform (3% annual increment is considered excellent, while most are only getting around 1-2 %). But if you brown-nose and suck up to the upper management, they might take notice and throw you a carrot from time to time. Such a shame because FICO has such a good brand equity, and they know it and abuse that to their advantage. If you have to join FICO, work anywhere but myFICO division.
Director (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – March 19, 2018
The management at FICO was fantastic when I started working for them. Clear vision, promotion opportunities, great salary and benefits. In the past 18 months the company has gone down hill. Mostly due to the senior managers and the sycophants they hire around them.
Data Centric Company which strives for work/life balance but doesn't always attain it.
Manager (Former Employee) – San Rafael, CA – October 26, 2017
The FICO Score is well known for a reason - a very rigorous algorithm constantly updated, which also means a lot of work to ensure this data superiority. Most of the managers are great, while some are not aware of how hard their subordinates actually work and in some positions the stress level is high. Overall a good company to work for in the right position with the right compensation.
Free coffee, tea and sodas and snacks. Generally great co-workers.
Lots of work depending upon the position and not a lot of room for promotion.
Contract & Business Unit Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 14, 2017
company offered many at campus benefits for the employees such as gym with personal training and classes and cafe with great food. Due to the quarterly reporting, certain departments work in a very high stress environment that create a level of job fear and unhappiness that is felt throughout.
My team had exceptionally interesting and challenging work. Most of my immediate co-workers were top quality.
Management is very opaque with all decision being very centralized. There were several misrepresentations made to me during hiring regarding scope and budget for my position. The rating systems builds a cutthroat culture that I do not miss.
The company IT support was the worst I have ever witnessed.
