    I worked at Teradata full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - You'll learn quickly the benefits and drawbacks of working for a large corporation.
    - Generally, they provide you with what you need to do your job.
    - A big company means room to grow your career and transition to a new job.
    - A big name looks good on a resume.
    - Good learning opportunities.

    Cons

    - Management seemed disconnected from employees that are writing code and doing support.
    - 3 years seemed to be the average job turnover, which isn't great but isn't terrible.
    - Not much flexibility in terms of a work/life balance. You work until the job gets done, but no reward or recognition for working beyond 40 hours.
    - Pay starts low, but may go up if you have an offer in hand. Negotiate!
    - Making marketing software isn't exactly soul enriching.

    Advice to Management

    Your all-hands meetings are a colossal waste of time. Nobody wants to rah-rah a team of suits that don't speak to or work alongside the non-management staff. It's patronizing and causes rifts between management and employees.

    I have been working at Teradata full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Being able to work virtually if not based at a main location. Excellent products and technology.

    Cons

    The company is struggling to redefine itself. There are a lot of political games and land grabs going on. Much of the management could stand to be replaced. Once hired, there is little to no upward mobility and career development. No innovative programs out of HR to attract and retain the best.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for employees. Get rid of the unnecessary red tape.
