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

    Pros

    This may go on for a while: the people here are fantastic; everyone contributes and when you ask for help, you get it. No one hovers over your shoulder (we're treated as adults here). The managers are exceptional (and not just in IE; on every project I've worked on, the manager has been able to communicate expectations effectively, establish reasonable timelines, and provided the necessary resources). It is a real pleasure to come to work in the IE department (especially since the cubes were eliminated and we have an open working space).

    Cons

    Hummm...the carpet is kind of old...

    Advice to Management

    Hire a serious, experience grill person for the cafeteria.
