I worked at Teradata full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Years ago they used to make money

Cons

Addicted to hardware, the majority of the revenue is from it after marking it 1000% and well just look at hardware companies these days.
No room for upward mobility.
Company is old and running out of ideas. Always reactive to keep their few big customers happy.
Most the people are very very old and do just enough to get by day to day.
Loosing huge ground to the competition.
No actual cloud vision at all just smoke and mirrors.
ITS organization is the oldest, most out of date I've ever seen. See all the other reviews on the IT group, they are dead on.
R&D is slow, hugely overburdened with the mountains of ridiculous formal processes. I mean how many times do you need to write a formal design document for a feature that should take no more than 100 lines of code.
Understaffed all the time.
Never willing to hear new ideas, even the CTO level is closed to any new ideas or concepts. Do not see the competition or recognize the changing industry.

    I worked at Teradata full-time

    Pros

    There is very little in the pros, maybe that they don't charge us for parking.

    Cons

    Literally everyone you'll meet is 50s+, most have been there forever, and all are content to just do the bare minimum to scrape by. Very little innovation or thought leadership.

    I worked at Teradata full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Starts out like the perfect job. Then reality shows up. Product is great and very focused on key objectives. Training is great and San Diego office is amazing.

    Cons

    Sales management is totally unaligned with new employees. Inner circle will not allow anyone else to join and fosters an environment that is totally hostile. The tenure employees forget what it is like not to know an answer. They have a totally crazy way they make you expense entertainment and typically don't pay much of your expenses one incurred for business.
