    I have been working at Teradata full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Being able to work virtually if not based at a main location. Excellent products and technology.

    Cons

    The company is struggling to redefine itself. There are a lot of political games and land grabs going on. Much of the management could stand to be replaced. Once hired, there is little to no upward mobility and career development. No innovative programs out of HR to attract and retain the best.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for employees. Get rid of the unnecessary red tape.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, 401k match, flexible schedules

    Cons

    Low salaries as compared to peer roles at other companies. Cost cutting, layoffs. There is no encouragement for career growth. Company is definitely shrinking.

    Advice to Management

    Many bad decisions have been made about the direction of the company. Retire somewhat gracefully and let new outside blood take over.

    I have been working at Teradata full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have a fairly unique role at Teradata there are about 10 other people in the company that are my peers. In this role, I work remotely and have incredible flexibility with schedule. I get regular raises and decent bonuses even though those have dropped off the last few years since consulting and hardware industries have struggled.

    Cons

    Strict chain of command culture - makes it tough in my strategic role to get executive input. We have an intense governance policy for everything. Most of my job is working through these governing bodies. Takes a LONG time to get anything accomplished. We struggle with responding quickly as most big companies do. There is NO career path for me since I'm outside of consulting. I'm in a higher level role, but the most I could hope for would be a promotion in 5-10 years.

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

    Pros

    Very good place for working virtually or on a flexible work schedule. Great for engineers or sales and sales management professionals.

    Cons

    IT for workers lag behind other companies. Not a leading edge for marketing but improving. Little recognition outside of the sales organization. Medical benefits are not the best. Very few women or minorities in top management.

    Advice to Management

    Try to recognize groups outside of sales more often. Make an effort to maintain goodwill with employees that are leaving the company.

    Pros

    Product based company, good learning, great exposure, great experience, takes care of employees, good teradata university learning opportunities

    Cons

    The only issue I faced working for Teradata as a professional services consultant was traveling and that was taken care of by my manager who assigned me a local project. Sometimes have to work late hours (sometimes) but that is the same with any services company

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I think you people are doing a fine job!!!
