    I worked at Teradyne full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good health benefit remained- EPO health option, although a little bit on the costly side, covered 100% of the hospital bills. That is a big plus!

    Cons

    Overwhelming cost control forced the company to move majority of the quality work to low cost region! Unless you are designer, your value at the company is extremely low.

    Thanks for sharing your insights after 10 good years at Teradyne. I do think our culture is rewarding, for example, our profit-sharing perfectly reflects Teradyne's "we win, you win" approach. Nonetheless, we would love to hear from you offline and discuss how we can make your 3-star rating a 5-star rating :) Thanks for being a part of our success!
