    Pros

    professional, helpful management.
    excellent opportunity for innovation and growth .
    Superb understanding and talent--from some of the best universities in the country.

    Cons

    The only thing that I can think of is that sometimes, projects are started, abandoned, and shelved and that wastes time.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice the leadership to focus on growth--hiring more people, understanding better the challenges of the industry and how to find good people to solve them.

    I worked at Aster Data Systems full-time

    Pros

    Excellent team; fun engaged environment; growth opportunities; solid technology; innovation encouraged; work in small teams; can participate across design, develop, test cycles.

    Cons

    Teradata HR is difficult to work with. My green card application took a long time to process with fits and starts.

    Advice to Management

    Fix Teradata HR or hire a local HR representative who can shield employees from Teradata HR processes.
