    Great co-workers, laid back, good work-life balance. Do your job well and you have a good deal of freedom.

    Put some good project management in place. Don't hire developers and then give them no development work.

    Pros

    Great people and vision. When I was fortunate to be hired; I felt like I was part of a big family. So many warm and familiar faces.

    Cons

    In the midst of a total transformation - including org changes and realignments. Expense tightening measures led to locking the supply cabinets which tended to lend to an air of uncertainty.

    I worked at Teradata full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and very seasoned Data Warehousing professionals. Technology is solid and works well. For me pay was good and work life / balance was OK. I was either waiting on work or working 60 hours a week with travel.

    Cons

    Lack of focus on PS sales... They are in the mode of selling anything with poor SOW's agreed upon with customers. Not getting big deals or partnering with IBM/Accenture and others to help grow business. The virtual office is good/bad, it is very difficult to network or know what is happening in the company. Difficult to get training. I almost finished the complete Architecture class list then they changed it or would not allow me to go to critical training. Did not support me getting Hadoop training or Data Science/Analytics classes. Then laid me off since I didn't have Hadoop training.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the NCR mentality of sales. It is a new world now for data driven decisions and just being in the game isn't good enough now. Support people when they want training. FIRE THE CEO! Mike has the personality of a pineapple.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance with the flexibility to work from home when necessary. One quarterly paid volunteer day is a cool perk. They also have a nice retirement and donation matching program. Work environment is casual.

    Cons

    Employees feel like upper management isn't listening to them. A majority of employees are NCR lifers and are more interested in keeping the lights on till retirement than moving the company forward. Cost-cutting is the most important thing to the company right now, and more work is being piled on fewer people, causing great people to move on.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize early retirement to infuse new people with new ideas into the company at all levels.
