Pros

Good product. Flex hour. Good for older employees. But recently have seen 2 early retirement push to get rid of old employees.

Cons

For the software engineering division, Teradata Labs, management thinks very lowly of you if you are not on the top 10 percent of people they have to keep. Their mind is stuck in the last century. Does not reward people for creativity, but very quick at punishing if you commit slightest mistakes. Pay is 20-30% below industry. Merit increase is 1.5% a year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up and see how Silicone Valley treats tech people.

    Pros

    Good pay...bonus and other benefits...leading edge company on the forefront of BIG data and analytics. great opportunities for advancement. They also are very understanding and supportive of a great balance between work and life and do realize you have a family.

    Cons

    As with any large organization, politics, unfortunately, play a part in the company culture. For example, spinning off as our own corporate entity from NCR gave us an opportunity to fix some of the previous culture's broken processes. Instead of fixing them, we took them lock, stock, and barrel and will "fix them later". That's just a silly management decision and, of course, they still have not been fixed, three years later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your people. You tout them as experts, but don't listen when they suggest opportunities for organizational improvements
