    I worked at Teradata full-time (More than 3 years)


    Teradata respects you for your talents and gives you space to work your hardest. Best place for work/life balance, but it is earned and your time is respected.


    There are many changes, but the company is going through a transformation and with changes comes growth, and the company is doing great things.

    Advice to Management

    Be more accessible and share more of your ideas and plans so everyone can help move the culture forward.

    Java Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Teradata (Raleigh, NC).


    One phone screen with hiring manager
    Week later scheduled for 3 hrs in-person interview for C2H

    Overall the company culture seemed to be like aggressive and micro managed. Anyone can see anyone from corner of the office and hear what you talk. That itself put me off !

    Interview Questions

    • Difference between synchronize map vs concurrent map
      How is set implemented?
      Singleton implementation?
      How Hashmap works ?
      Coallesce function
      Join vs Union
      Arraylist vs linkedlist
      Microservice – how put is operated with an identifier (URI or payload)
      Why is string immutable?
      Spring beans scope
      SQL Joins/Unions (what and differences)
      Some Architecture idiot was asking about Chess board game and how to implement horse move!!! (looks like he is enthusiastic to interview and lose sight of acknowledging interviewee is a person like him) – Clearly this question seemed to infer lack of compassion in the company.

      PS: there is some white-boarding stuff, which I hate the most !!!   1 Answer
