Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great co-workers, who are smart, caring, family friendly. A good place to get immersed in the world of business analytics and real time business decision making. Sales Operations and Marketing are very well run organizations

Cons

No career advancement. Senior management is just the same group of rotating sales people with no technology skills or innovative thinking. Company is unwilling to take risks to remain viable in a rapidly changing market landscape. Senior management is unwilling to listen to newer voices with fresh ideas, and appears genuinely afraid of those who may not think like they do. Engineering is understaffed and under funded to compete with newer technologies and competitors with deeper pockets.

Advice to Management

Stop promoting your friends and bring in some innovative thinkers with fresh ideas. There is strength in bringing people to the team who don't have 'group think' mentality.

    Pros

    It is growing even in this poor economy.

    Cons

    Could mean lots of travel. After all, it is an international company

    Advice to Management

    If we can't get raises, you shouldn't be getting those HUGE stock options.

    Pros

    Teradata offers the best data warehousing products on the market, and now that we have spun off from NCR, there is an opportunity for us to be more nimble, agile and competitive. They offer competitive benefits, and a friendly work/family environment.

    Cons

    In some areas, the opportunity for professional growth and a defined career path are limited. Merit increases have been limited in non-sales job positions.
