    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity to learn a wide variety of applications. You have plenty of time to investigate issues without constantly being on the phones.

    Cons

    The company is currently (2015) in transition with a number of recent acquisitions and working to develop a cohesive strategy for how to merge the technologies into a unified platform.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive and communicate your vision for applications so the company understands the direction you will be taking as you unify diverse applications in a single platform.

    Pros

    Continues to be a leader in market share, Technical Leader in Data warehousing, multi faceted organization with various software options for different needs.

    Cons

    Teradata has a finite number of options to advance, the growth is slowing but the corporate expectations has not adjusted.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the feedback of employees, and increase the benefit package to line up closer to some of the upstart competitors to avoid attrition.

    Pros

    Great technology and very many smart people. The culture of the company feels like a small company, but with large company resources.

    Cons

    None really, overall this company is a great place to work. Could be a little bit more supportive of virtual workers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek out fresh ideas. Also seek to add more younger workforce from top information-technology schools. Increase support for virtual workers.
