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

    Pros

    Satisfying work, professional colleagues and consultancy that delivers software that really works at huge scale. Teradata values and rewards knowledge and training. It is an ethical and environmentally conscious company with flexible working conditions.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization has been disruptive and way too top down for an organization that prides itself on being consultative. Chasing management trends has devalued the high levels of experience from some the seasoned professionals that have a tremendous amount to offer.

    Advice to Management

    Balance the value of what you’ve got with the new things you’re seeking and don’t look for a silver bullet.

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

    Pros

    Worked with some very smart and talented people, the company finally got rid of many of the clueless and deficient executives shortly before I resigned and started to build a cohesive strategy

    Cons

    Had 7 bosses in three years, promised tuition reimbursement then the company backed out after I was an employee, had my base and variable pay dropped by 25% “accidentally”, took 3 months to correct that error and they never back paid me on the lost pay.

    Advice to Management

    Build a culture where employees are proud to work there.

    Pros

    From my time working there so far (~1 year), Teradata manages to foster great people, great culture, great work life balance.

    Cons

    There are no cons. So I will write a poem to fulfill the 20 word minimum. Teradata is great, don’t hate.

    I worked at Teradata full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging position with lots of customer facing contact.

    Cons

    Teradata seems to be very up and down with regard to keeping employees - lots of RIFs, and then boon to hire qualified people because the work force knows how fickle the company is with regard to hiring/laying of cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Stop re-organizing so much - figure out who you are and where you compete successfully, and go that direction.
