    Pros

    A company that truly recognizes A+ players. Great way to find mentors and grow. The biggest plus is the Fortune customers are loyal to Teradata for their support/services and in general the utility of the product. That's the environment that's generally hard to get with other competitors. The leadership strives hard to keep up with the change in the market place as they still a bit old school in thinking (Can't blame the company - it's been around for so many years and also successful - why do you need to change ?)

    Cons

    Teradata has trouble keeping top performers who generally move to startups because they get bored because of limited engagement with employees. On the positive side, it can also empower the top performers because there is a lot of space to grow as company does not discourage creativiity ! The top minds who are willing to stay back can have a great time at work even though the pay many not be super competitive compared to other companies in this space.

    Pros

    Teradata has a very unique training style. It can be a bit confusing until you understand how they role. The people are nice and they seem more like a family than co-workers. It has a very laid back atmosphere yet can be very busy. Nobody appears stressed out or in a hurry.

    Cons

    Back to the "unique" training style, I can see how it could work. However, if your sent to do a job and have wrenches thrown in, it can mess you up. You have to at least know to look out for them (in my humble opinion at least).

    Advice to Management

    You have a great team that really cares about their work. This is unusual for the typical enterprise employee. Keep up the good work ...and maybe reconsider training techniques a little.
