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

    Pros

    Lots of new and interesting technology in use to pick up and learn. Great people and interesting projects too. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Lacking leadership especially in the cloud org. The cloud org is all over the place and need direction. Nothing useful comes from the GM.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the current leadership structure. And hire leaders, not managers for top roles.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Flexible work schedule. Great training. Smart people. Premier technology.

    Cons

    Company is led exclusively by management who 'bonded' together 10 years ago during merger/spin-out/IPO from NCR/AT&T, and if you are not one of 'them' you will not be promoted into a position of authority/management. Very very old guard who protect their secrets and ignorance. They will not listen to change.

    You are either a member of YesterYear's senior management club, or you are a meaningless resource.

    Advice to Management

    Dare to promote fresh blood. Dare to change. Dare to listen to new ideas.

    Pros

    Decent base pay bonus money if the sales group makes their numbers and the solution architect snags most of the professional services hours

    Cons

    Highly political. Solutions architects compete against each other to get chosen by Account Executives in presale situations. They want to monopolize the professional services hours for themselves.Turf wars over the best accounts and account executives. Managers play favorites based on drinking buddy status instead of skill and productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Checkout what you are hearing in this highly politicized environment.
