    Pros

    Product line is solid
    Good bene and salary.
    Good work life balance in general
    Plentiful training opportunities
    Job security

    Cons

    Teradata struggles to stay relevant in a ever more diluted market with new competitors snipping at its heals. Teradata is by the most powerful database available for any price, but management is trying to reinvent the company. As a result conflicting and crazy time wasting exercises have taken priority over actual work.

    Advice to Management

    When your workers spend more time reacting to your random edicts than doing their jobs there is a fundamental problem and you should reevaluate your approach.

    I worked at Teradata full-time

    Pros

    Good Managers
    Flexibility (WFH/Flexi-timings)
    People stay there for years together - so something must be good.

    Cons

    It's your bad luck if you end up having to work with difficult people.
    That's unavoidable in any company.

    Advice to Management

    1. Rotate people in different teams so that no dependencies are created. Also they will have better knowledge about how all the components fit in.
    2.People like to be listened to - maybe one on ones more often for those who don't do it regularly.
