Pros

Solid product. Hot segment in the technology industry. Good co-workers.

Cons

If you consider yourself a bright individual with strong motivation to move up the career ladder, this is not the place to be. This company WILL put sudden brakes to your motivation to go up, creativity, skills, innovative thinking, personal growth. Management do not care for employees. Pay is WELL BELOW what other companies are offering. Bonus is tiny. Management makes you think they are doing you a favor by keeping you at job. Management is incompetent and do not really understand the meaning of "employee satisfaction". They do not encourage and compensate Engineers for their hard work. Lost a lot of good people because of this and this already causing a lot of quality issues in recent releases of Teradata. R&D Management should be replaced before we lose upper edge in the industry.

Advice to Management

You've got great people creating and building top notch product. You keep your job because of bright people who are working real hard. Create plans to motivate your employees, encourage them to stay in this company. These people are our strength. Do not lose them. Give them enough incentives and motivation to stay.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule - may work from home.
    Co-workers are friendly and helpful.
    Lot's of opportunities to make a real contribution to the product.
    Job security - it's been a long time since the last layoff and there are always open job reqs.

    Cons

    Too many processes and procedures.
    E-mail is abused. Too many requests for help from managers and others reduces time for working on actual features, and may cause some stress.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get rid of or streamline old procedures/requirements to reduce the extra work you give to engineers that may distract from feature development.
