Pros

Great co-workers, who are smart, caring, family friendly. A good place to get immersed in the world of business analytics and real time business decision making. Sales Operations and Marketing are very well run organizations

Cons

No career advancement. Senior management is just the same group of rotating sales people with no technology skills or innovative thinking. Company is unwilling to take risks to remain viable in a rapidly changing market landscape. Senior management is unwilling to listen to newer voices with fresh ideas, and appears genuinely afraid of those who may not think like they do. Engineering is understaffed and under funded to compete with newer technologies and competitors with deeper pockets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promoting your friends and bring in some innovative thinkers with fresh ideas. There is strength in bringing people to the team who don't have 'group think' mentality.

    Teradata's data warehouse is amazing. The new product line will certainly take business away from the competition.

    Pros

    It is growing even in this poor economy.

    Cons

    Could mean lots of travel. After all, it is an international company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we can't get raises, you shouldn't be getting those HUGE stock options.
