I have been working at Teradyne full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There are many different parts to Teradyne these days: the core semiconductor group; smaller board test, disk drive test, and mil/aero groups; recent acquisitions that operate autonomously; and some in-house startups. If you find the one that fits your style, working there can be a blast. Current employees get preference for openings in other groups.

Cons

The technical work is cutting edge but is so specialized that you can get stuck with skills that are difficult to transfer to another company. If you're above entry level there can be unexpected travel to other sites or other continents. Projects can be very long - years.

Advice to Management

Try to do more than the bare minimum on facilities and benefits. Profit-sharing and ESPP are good but are not a substitute for competitive pay.

    I have been working at Teradyne full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Teradyne the company with no doors. This is so true. There literally are no doors separating me from the vp of the company. This is extremely beneficial in being able to have open conversations in order to solve engineering problems. Additionally here is never a boring day around here. Every day presents a new challenge and something new to learn.

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say yet.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great providing the tools needed to expand your knowledge and to complete your job. Keep up the great work!!

    Pros

    Lots of great people to work with. Very flexible environment.

    Cons

    Base pay is just OK. Management seems to think profit sharing replaced annual raises. The code base is becoming unmanageable..
