"FICO is doing well in the market and has a strong hot in the financial services markets in the US and Western Europe. However, it has struggled to make headway into new markets and adjacent areas although owning significant IP in Machine Learning and strong domain knowledge. Perhaps due to lack of cross-organization collaboration and unstructured innovation. Employees are well compensated with generous packages that include bonuses, 401k, great health insurance, stock purchase plan and more. But the work environment is a bit cold."

Additionally, the innovation should not whimsical but rather focused to be driven by the market and, new products have a clear line to the margin."
