    Pros

    Great Job and Good Pay. Not much more to say than that. One of the best software companies and has good benefits and nice people that are helpful. Very tight knit community of intelligent people from all over the world. There are many great clients that are typically some of the biggest corporations in the world. Company operates all over the world and probably has the best product in data warehousing. There are many fun activites and a good community of people that are pleasant to work with. I would recommend the company to anyone that enjoys software and consulting.

    Cons

    Long Work Hours and Travel

    Pros

    Management sets reasonable, albeit stretch goals for bonus compensation
    Smart, energetic, group of individuals
    Global capabilities and opportunities
    Industry leading solution with solid value proposition
    In the recent economic down turn management looked to protect employees by cutting everywhere else first.
    Most of all, Teradata people have a "customer first" mind set.

    Cons

    Risk averse
    Sometimes difficult to work through the operations teams - procurement, HR, legal etc.
    Matrix management in the field can be difficult to work with and on occasion prevents action
    Uncertainty generated by being viewed as a take over target

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put customers and employees at the top of the priority list
    Work to communicate the strategic direction and let the employees make decsions based on that direction

    Pros

    Teradata has great people and a great solution. I enjoy a flexible work schedule, decent benefits and a good family/work balance. There is plenty of opportunity for advancement and company growth. We still get bonuses when earned too!

    Cons

    Just like everywhere else, benefits have been squeezed recently but, comparatively speaking, they are still decent.

    Advice to Management

    Management communicates with us regularly and keeps us motivated. Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Teradata full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Technically challenging, encouraged to use current open source technologies, room for growth for promotion and project leadership. Agile development, continuous integration and test. Company promotes work/life balance, flexible hours. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Development processes and tracking still conform to waterfall software development model, making it difficult to mesh with agile development. But, mostly it's working.

    Pros

    Big Data Market is exploding. Teradata is in the sweet spot with a lot of Fortune customers adopting it fast.

    Cons

    Somewhat structured environment. It's not bad, but it's no startup if that's your expectations.

    Pros

    Product based company, good learning, great exposure, great experience, takes care of employees, good teradata university learning opportunities

    Cons

    The only issue I faced working for Teradata as a professional services consultant was traveling and that was taken care of by my manager who assigned me a local project. Sometimes have to work late hours (sometimes) but that is the same with any services company

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I think you people are doing a fine job!!!

    Great colleagues, all very smart and capable. Excellent management for the most part, with a great focus on making sure everyone has everything they need to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Continue diversifying the product portfolio, and providing education to those who can help sell new products as well as the existing ones.
