Company stuck in the 80s, a real joke

I have been working at Teradata full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flex hour at least, depending on your group. Some groups seemed less overburdened than others. Benefits were pretty decent. Free food if you sneak in after new hire initiations and other presentations. Convenient work from home for family, etc reasons.

Cons

Terrible location. Heavy heavy bureaucracy. Older management. Average employee 30+ with family. Lots of processes. Unreliable online tools. Reports filed for every change. Sometimes 30 line reports for 1 line of code change. Poor intergroup communication.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good luck. Better get young and hold on loosely. Stop spending money on useless benefits (onsite haircuts?? who really needs that??) And get young people in or you're going to be sinking faster than the Titanic.

    Pros

    Great place to work, good people and company does try to do the right thing for the customer.

    Cons

    Organizations are pretty stove piped and it is hard to move between organizations; sales, servies, marketing, engineering. You enter into an organization and tend to stay in that organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up a little and look across the organization.
