    Pros

    Product based company, good learning, great exposure, great experience, takes care of employees, good teradata university learning opportunities

    Cons

    The only issue I faced working for Teradata as a professional services consultant was traveling and that was taken care of by my manager who assigned me a local project. Sometimes have to work late hours (sometimes) but that is the same with any services company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Very good place for working virtually or on a flexible work schedule. Great for engineers or sales and sales management professionals.

    Cons

    IT for workers lag behind other companies. Not a leading edge for marketing but improving. Little recognition outside of the sales organization. Medical benefits are not the best. Very few women or minorities in top management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to recognize groups outside of sales more often. Make an effort to maintain goodwill with employees that are leaving the company.

    I have been working at Teradata

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. They constantly offer assistance whether or not they stand to gain anything. The companies that you get to work with provide excellent experience in a varying array of fields.

    Cons

    The opportunity for advancement is limited. HR prevents large moves within the company, so your almost forced to look externally for a significant pay advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create leadership development programs, allow for pay advancement to accompany title advancement, sales is important, but you should also reward the people that make the company what it is after the sale has taken place.
