    I have been working at Teradata full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very smart co-workers (for the most part), opportunities to touch cutting edge technologies, currently expanding at an incredible rate. Teradata has enough areas that you could spend quite a bit of time here dabbling in Engineering, Program Management, Management, etc. and probably not get too bored.

    Cons

    Development cycles are increasing at a vicious rate. There are a lot of strong headed politics. If you enjoy being a software engineer you will be OK. Beyond that, there are plenty of strong opinions and long histories here that are difficult to break through. If you are accepted, you will find things are pretty smooth.

    Advice to Management

    It's 2012. Wake up. This isn't AT&T or NCR. This is a growing company with growing discontent among your best employees. It's time to revisit compensation - and for the love of God, throw in a few more paid holidays for US employees.
