Pros

Large professional services organization with excellent support from all levels. Great technology and lots of smart employees. If you need feedback there is plenty of both online and offline resources accessible for the new consultant. The culture is very relaxed with plenty of flexibility with working styles. Overall this is a great company to work for, especially for technical consultants.

Cons

Large professional services organizations are also somewhat impersonal. More communication could help. The consultants are very intelligent but not as polished technically as they can be. The large organization means that difficultities lie for rapid upwards growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More communication. There is too much "do your own thing" and not enough accountability at professional services level. More non-technical training for presentation and business devfelopment skills.

    Teradata Strong on Technology But Needs Improvement on Execution

    Pros

    Techology leadership with very experienced and strong technical staff. Teradata has been a market leader for many years but now is being challenged by new players in the appliance arena as well as tradtional competitors such as IBM and HP. Micorosft is also aggressively entering the market and will start to compete with Teradata, as well. Teradata needs to develop an entry level approach to the appliance market, which it is doing but it needs to focus on doing a better job of marketing this and getting the word out to potential customers that the Teradata applicance is a good entry level for them.

    Cons

    Teradata is more of a hardware company than a software or solutions company and as such often doesn't approach business problems with "value added" fresh ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more marketing and sales driven and trust your field sales teams more than you do. Don't micromanage and don't push products on customers without being sensitive to value drivers.

    Good company, increasingly tough industry

    Pros

    Compensation, job satisfaction, cutting edge technology. Its a great place to learn new industries and network with IT personnel at major Fortune 1000 companies. The Teradata community of customers and employees is a very tight knit group, which is usually a good thing.

    Cons

    Too much travel, too many meetings, not enough organized reusable intellectual property to be sold and implemented. Mid level management is usually very strong, depending on the industry. The work force is quite senior, but efforts are being made to bring in younger team members and grow the organization from the bottom up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more attuned to what is happening in the marketplace. Need to respond faster with more solutions, and advertise/market more aggressively.
