Cons: my direct manger, year-end processing expense reports as never can take off time for holiday, pay, some of the benefits
Responsible tracking and auditing travel & expenses for over 30 countries globally which is cultrally interesting and challenging. We have a good group of people and great contacts within the other department internally and globally. Hardest part is at times the language barrier, but we work with it and in the end it works. But, this can also be the – more... most enjoyable, learning about all other parts of the world. All in all a great company! – less
Worker Bee (Current Employee), Center of the Teradata universe – January 9, 2014
Pros: free coffee/pop
If you have a decent managers in the office, things will be good, if you don't its gonna make your work life suffer, don't expect much. There is a park near by that you can scream atthe end of your work day but its closed during the winter. Most managers in IT seem rather level headed, but something is changing in the air.
Productive, smart group of people with effective management
GLOBAL ALLIANCES MANAGER (Current Employee), Dayton, Ohio – November 24, 2012
Pros: management that does not believe in micro-managing, work-life balance, history of outperforming both internal and external financial projections, competitive bonus structure
Cons: limited opportunities for career advancement
Teradata Corporation is a proven leader in its field of data warehousing, with very effective personnel staffed throughout from entry level up through the executive suite. In my part of the organization (sales and marketing), there is a heavy reliance on a national / international network of far-flung resources, many who work remotely from their homes.
As – more... such, the culture is based around multiple daily conference calls and heavy use of email. It makes for a great work-life balance, and yet our productivity as a company proves that people remain focused on executing their responsibilities with focus and rigor.
The hardest part of life at Teradata for me, however, has been the company's very flat structure and limited opportunities for career advancement and growth. Compensation is relatively competitive, though, which serves as a partial offset. – less
Systems Analyst/Software Engineer (Current Employee), Miamisburg, OH – October 31, 2012
Pros: flexible schedule
My day consists of updating our current ERP system by fixing code, writing new code, testing, and creating Oracle forms. On top of upgrading the ERP system, I support the current system by helping the business users solve errors or problems they come across. My manager is great. He's very laid back as long as our work is completed in the time it's allocated – more... to. Upper management could be better but still good people. The hardest part of my job is juggling all the work that's given to me in a given day. We are a $5 Billion company and our ERP team only consists of 14 people. Between supporting the current system and upgrading to Oracle E-business suite R12, time has to be managed well. The most enjoyable part of the job is staying busy. – less
