    Pros

    Company has really excellent technology, and solid products that sell very well. It is currently positioned at the right place at the right time - the convergence of virtualization, cloud and mobility. Plans to build the portfolio of software products are solidly in place and being executed.

    Cons

    Company has a lot of products and it wants to focus all at the same time. Needs to prioritize and focus on the most strategic. You can't do all - even if you want to!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on hiring strong engineers! Continue the high level of investment in R&D.

    Pros

    Great people, very bright, and also very nice! Cool technology.

    Cons

    Sometime a bit more bureaucratic than necessary. A bit shy in marketing but it's being addressed well now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up to great work in focusing on the software business

    Pros

    Generally pleasant atmosphere Developers are keen and most are competent

    Cons

    Management can not make a decision and stick to it Massive in-fighting within lower and mid-level management (Huge turf wars) Several key management personnel have unprofessional behavior

    Advice to Management

    Management needs a shake-up and a re-focus to decisive and professional business conduct

    Pros

    People are top-notch both professionally and humanly. Good salaries.

    Cons

    An unpleasant feeling creeps in when the company acts hypocritically. Like announcing that it cannot sponsor the SunRun team while throwing out hundreds of thousands out of the window on the dead end projects. Last year there were 35 people taking part in the SunRun, so approximately $2,000 expense for a 50 million company.

    Advice to Management

    Taking people for fools breaks trust in Teradici as employer. We are going to leave, dignity is more important than money!

    Pros

    Great technology, decent work life balance, people care about their work, autonomy for sales folk

    Cons

    Not much in terms of career advancement, poor leadership at CEO level. Invested too much time in some products that are destined to fail or were not even launched at all. Let go of some of their most experience and tenured employees during layoffs as well as didn't retain some of their best staff in the past years.

    Advice to Management

    No direction. Focus seemed to shift almost every quarter. Hard to gain any traction when priorities shift every few months. CEO needs to let people do their jobs and let the people that were hired to run their departments do what they were hired to do.

    Pros

    The recruitment/ interview process was very smooth and well managed. One of the best I have been through. The HR was really responsive and cooperative. It really made the job switch smoother. The work environment is very friendly and productive

    Cons

    None as of now. Keep up the good work. Concentrate on building innovative stuff.

    Pros

    Cutting-edge technology that can disrupt the desktop and make virtualization pleasant for end-users, not just IT and management. Lots of great, competent co-workers. Existing revenue stream leads to some flexibility in choosing new problems to solve. Great wins in the marketplace, with feel-good aspects, as in Ministry of Education Malaysia -- making a real difference in a whole country's elementary student population. (Opportunities for this certainly exist in neighbors and other regions). Recent, painful dismissals were conducted professionally and the departing colleagues were treated fairly and well.

    Cons

    "Great wins" are not leading to more great wins. C- and below-C-level management doesn't seem to understand why. More managers-per-others than any other place I've worked. Culture is in danger of being eaten away by politics and empire building.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of the accelerating traction that our technology deserves shows that leadership doesn't really understand how to grow our business. That's a cause for concern. I suspect that sales' incentive structures didn't keep adjusting to the best business cases for growing sales.
