    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Solid product. Hot segment in the technology industry. Good co-workers.

    Cons

    If you consider yourself a bright individual with strong motivation to move up the career ladder, this is not the place to be. This company WILL put sudden brakes to your motivation to go up, creativity, skills, innovative thinking, personal growth. Management do not care for employees. Pay is WELL BELOW what other companies are offering. Bonus is tiny. Management makes you think they are doing you a favor by keeping you at job. Management is incompetent and do not really understand the meaning of "employee satisfaction". They do not encourage and compensate Engineers for their hard work. Lost a lot of good people because of this and this already causing a lot of quality issues in recent releases of Teradata. R&D Management should be replaced before we lose upper edge in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    You've got great people creating and building top notch product. You keep your job because of bright people who are working real hard. Create plans to motivate your employees, encourage them to stay in this company. These people are our strength. Do not lose them. Give them enough incentives and motivation to stay.
