    Pros

    Good salary and health benefits, healthy work environment, great exposure specially since you get to work for clients from various industries. Great courses on TD university and good training opportunities are provided

    Cons

    More emphasis needs to be given on defining career path of an employee

    Advice to Management

    more emphasis needs to be given on defining the career paths for those employees who are part of Teradata Global consulting centres so that they aren't treated only as cost effective labour.

    Pros

    Best in class core technology. Virtual office work environment. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Political corporate environment full of "old timers" from NCR that look out for themselves. Eroding competitive advantage (Hadoop, SAP, others gaining ground). Below avg compensation in certain areas (NY, SF, etc..). Just laid off approx 100 sales staff in US as a desperate attempt to make 3rd quarterly numbers this year.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and look internally at your own legacy management for next layoff opportunity. You won't right the ship by throwing good, smarter, hard-working people overboard just to save your old buddies.

    Have a lot of autonomy and work with smart, highly experienced people

    Poor cross-functional team alignment and collaboration which is detrimental to getting thinks done. Lack of accountability with little measurement of results against objectives.

    Instill a "team for results" culture with an emphasis on knowledge sharing and collaboration. Be willing to fire people who don't behave in alignment with culture and values. Foster a growth mindset to grow people and performance.

    Pros

    Was a great company to work for with still a best in class DW solution.

    Cons

    Leadership a bunch of old hardware sales guys that have missed the trends time and time again, constantly playing catch up when in effect that game is over (Big Data, SaaS, etc.), Surprised Wall Street hasn't pushed harder to get the old regime ousted long ago.

    Advice to Management

    Take your parachutes and leave, please...you are killing what's left of any value by hanging on.
