    Pros

    Great technology. Great people

    Cons

    It's an old school company with lots of legacy which can mean baggage. There's a ongoing re-org being orchestrated by a couple of big management consulting houses and they are doing the best they can to nudge the culture and mindset of the company to be more current. There's no lack of enthusiasm for the "new" company to emerge from the ashes but it's an ongoing challenge to realize that vision.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Consulting and technology. Teradata is still one of the best MPPs even if it's expensive. Lots of variety in consulting and really smart people.

    Cons

    Pay lower than industry average. Older company in the technology industry. Needs to be more efficient to keep up with the market.

    Advice to Management

    Less Hardware, More cloud and Services. But that seems to be the direction.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Overly process-driven, too many levels of management. Not focused on cutting-edge technology. Ineffective project management.

    Advice to Management

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