TECHNICAL CONSULTANT (Current Employee), Manila, ARJune 11, 2015
Has different activities that employees can leverage during their free time to enjoy a Work-Life Balance. Being in the company for almost 4 years, is what I can consider as one of the most fruitful times in my career. The company has always been people-oriented and always makes it employees their priority.

Small silo'd group and shoestring budget.
Infrastructure, automation and provisioning (Current Employee), Cary, NCApril 2, 2015
Pros: Great fringe benny's, stable work, great work/life balance.
Cons: Personal growth is limited, stingy on comp (but still not as bad as others.)
As an engineer, I'm happy with the role I'm in. Make no mistake about that.

The fringe benefits are nice: fully stocked kitchen, free food, free soda fountain, and beer in the fridge a couple days a month. As long as you're not doing anything dumb, everything is cool.

I'm expected to put in a full 40, but time in the office is very flexible, as long as you can justify your time and effort. (Again, just don't do anything dumb, and work life balance is good.)

Management is probably the most technically minded team I've ever worked for.

One thing they don't handle well is full remote, though. And that's not entirely a bad thing- people are expected to work in their teams, and face to face is best.

My only real concerns are:
Focus on older tech, and shyness towards new.
As an engineer or dev, mobility within the company is unheard of, except for people leaving. High churn.
Annual bonus and merit raises are still a pittance, despite the improved economy.

This environment is best descibed very comfortable. If you want comfort and stability in your job, this is a great place. This isn't the most "fun" place I've worked, nor the most boring. It is one of the least stressed positions I've ever had.

90% of the time you are a virtual employee, and not having the ability to interact with others on a daily basis, can make work and life a little more difficult.

Working for Teradata was personally very rewarding. It was an invaluable part of my work experience.
Professional Services Post-sales Consultant (Former Employee), Saratoga Springs, UTJuly 11, 2014
Pros: air travel
Cons: air travel
* Most weeks began with air travel to a job site Sunday afternoon. The number of consultants varied from 1-10. Workdays were scheduled from 9am-5pm M-Th onsite and 9am-5pm working remote from a virtual office. Return air travel was Thursday evenings.
* Traveling to job sites every week provided an opportunity to experience a wide variety of work cultures and environments.
* There are some very talented and intelligent people working for Teradata as well as the various clients.
* In many ways this was my dream job.

Senior Professional Consultant (Current Employee), Johns Creek, GAJune 22, 2014
I get to work with different clients and solve a lot of their business problems. The hardest part is usually when you have to put in extra effort on weekends and week days to do a lot of fire fighting.

The most enjoyable part is the flexibility in the schedule and being able to work remotely

Account Executive (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 19, 2014
Pros: freedom. ability to do freelance writing. can travel.
Cons: working from home is extremely difficult.
I work from home as an account executive at Teradata. It's my job to generate business, and work toward a quota. While I love the company and the products that it provides, it's a difficult sell, and a long process. Most sales are anywhere between 9-15 months, and the investment is close to $1 million. I enjoy the ability to make large commissions, and my salary is very competitive; however, I'm looking for a different challenge.
