    Pros

    I started working at Teradyne as a Co-op student and then became a full time employee. I found it a very good place to work at and I enjoy my day to day work challenges. There are many opportunities to grow and your hard work will be rewarded. Salaries are competitive and hours are flexible. Free fitness classes and many other discounted tickets. People are so helpful and they try their best to make you happy.

    I have been working at Teradyne full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    The technical challenges you find in this industry are possibly better than those at SpaceX or Tesla. We are testing the chips that go into those products. Work with some of the most talented people in multiple engineering fields. Teradyne's Management Business Practices have allowed us to succeed and prosper while nearly all of our competitors have lost sight of the ball and failed financially. ( I used to work for...

    Cons

    A bit of a BIG company. But not all off this is bad. They still think Lotus Notes adds value. (This seems to be finally changing). Manufacturing offshore/outsourced. Not all of this is bad, but the days where you could pop onto the manufacturing floor and look at problems immediately in person are going away. Good business decision likely, but hard if you are used to everything under one roof. This is not just a...

    Advice to Management

    My focus is technology. For the most part, I'm allowed to focus on this and solve customer problems. I'd say to management, keep up the good work. And more specifically Thanks to Teradyne for allowing the Nextest family to prosper. We were acquired as a start-up and have been allowed to grow and integrate into the Teradyne culture over time. This was a delicate bit of work.

    I have been working at Teradyne full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have an amazing support group that encourages asking questions. The division I work for is very friendly and I am constantly surrounded by a wealth of knowledge. It took really no time to understand the structure and processes involved with the work.

    Cons

    Everything is self-help. If there is a problem with HR or a program, finding the right person can be tough.

    Advice to Management

    Continue providing support, but the amount of creative space given to employees is exactly what I was looking for.
