Comments: Ease to work

Pros: It Works vwell with large structured data files PowerCenter processes input files, performs specified transformations, and maps the input data format to the output data format very quickly. The PowerCenter backend implementation seems to be optimized to process and map structured input records to structured output records and load the records into a database. One of the strengths of PowerCenter is performance of processing petabytes of structured input data files.
PowerCenter does not require a software development experience or education. After providing initial hands-on training, the data consultants (who are statisticians, subject matter experts) in our organization were able to implement data ingest and data transformation tasks fairly easily.
PowerCenter supports multiple DBMS technologies (for example, Oracle, Netezza). This flexibility allows it to be used by multiple departments within AT&T organization.

Pros: When joining Informatica I have to say, the whole process was a very nice and comforting transition. I was very impressed by level of care, focus and how they approached the recruitment process.
The Human resources and Management team are a really great bunch of people and I believe we made the right choice together. They gave me confidence in how the company is run, they were clear and concise on how the company structure works and what the expectations are.
The company progression is great, already I'm gaining more responsibility and growing and learning more about the industry, so on this I would certainly recommend Informatica as a prospect to anyone looking for an Innovative, Positive, growing and fun company to work for

Cons: Scheduler tools can manage dependencies
accross many systems and environments. For instance you can
configure it so that your informatica job only runs after the
successful completion of some other system's windows job and/or
another system's batch job.
