    Pros

    Security, easy office experience, not much challenge

    Advice to Management

    Wise up and understand that you're going to lose out on employees if you don't invest time in their career goals. Millenials won't work the same way as the older generations, but you'll certainly need them to keep moving forward as a profitable company.

    I worked at Teradata full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a Solution Consultant, you are given lots of autonomy and hands off. No one is looking over your shoulder everyday. You work out of your home office. You are given an Office Depot account, a 4G hotspot to connect to internet OR your home wifi paid for (one or the other). You have expense account and travel account. Compensation is above average and bonus plans are excellent but the entire team must achieve it. Lots of training is provided, such as self pace, knowledge base, and classrooms.

    Cons

    Some might consider hands-off and autonomy a con because you need discipline and focus to get the job done. You should be self-motivated. As an exempt employee, you don't get paid overtime, and yes you work all hours as needed to get the job done.With traveling almost all the time, you can leave on a Sunday and not return until the following Saturday. Solution Consultants do not get to attend "Club" events even if you meet achievements / bonuses. This is a difficult role if you don't have the necessary technological aptitude as in computer science knowledge. You only get to have a Microsoft O/S laptop and not given a choice of Apple O/S.

    Advice to Management

    My concern has to do with the entire suite of products, solutions, and offerings. I don't think Teradata has the "best in class" products, solutions, or offerings compare with competitors. It does not matter what is in a Gartner magic quadrant report. You need to streamline and focus more on the value proposition for your clients and prospects.
