Productive fun place working with bright people.
Deskside Support (Former Employee) –  San Rafael, CA21 April 2019
It was only 4 hours per day paid but usually required 5 or 6 hours to complete all work in an excellent manner. No opportunity for growth or advancement at this particular location. Great work experience at deskside support. A great place to be challenged as they are mostly data scientists doing cutting edge work involving data science including machine learning. I learned all about imaging systems both pc and mac, data migration using encryption, TPM and User state migration tool. Inventory control and monitoring were important to attend to daily. The hardest part of the job is staying ahead of all the regular imaging and inventory work while also handling help desk type issues within the daily time frame. The most enjoyable part of the job is rubbing shoulders with intelligent hard working and dedicated people from all walks of life. The other equally enjoyable part is working with your peers all across the country and Great Britain as well. We would collaborate in twice-weekly meetings that were stimulating and productive. I highly recommend working here.
Pros
Snacks and great people
Cons
Time alloted for tasks

Great potential, but disjointed product vision
Director, Product Management (Former Employee) –  United States21 January 2019
FICO has the potential to be an amazing company, but is limited by two things. First, it needs to learn how to collaborate as a single company. Product lines operate in silos. Second, you have to be very skilled at corporate politics to get ahead. There is more emphasis on how people perceive and like you, than what you actually contribute.
Pros
Great people, good compensation
Cons
No respect for work life balance, highly political

Excellent Employer for Mid-Career Technologists
Principal Consultant, Solution Consulting (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CA13 January 2019
Definitely not a place to begin your career. No mentoring or development for younger professionals. Excellent opportunities for mid-career professionals with good business senses. Pure technologists (without an ability to apply technologies to business) should not apply.

Hard work but rewarding
Senior Business Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands15 November 2018
FICO is fast paced and dynamic - no two days are the same but there is a lot of investment in people and encouragement around continuous learning.

The Leadership Team are experienced and spend time communicating their strategy with staff members. My experience of management has always been very positive.

The hardest part of the job can be managing a heavy workload, especially email traffic, with also delivering consistent results.

The people at FICO are great to work with; supportive and result focused.
Pros
Investment in people
Cons
Long hours

Analytics Scientist (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CA31 October 2018
It's a great company to work for. You get to meet nice people there. However, the technology and skills required are limited. A lot of people work remotely and it's challenging to get response from them timely.

Good Company in the hands of Poor People Management
Solution Integration Consultant (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, Karnataka27 June 2018

workplace culture is good because of the corporate policies ., and the hardest part of the job is that there is a parity in treatment of individuals.
Pros
Free lunches, Leave policy
Cons
long working hours
