    I worked at Teradici full-time

    Pros

    Good people, interesting work. They go to great lengths to make it an enjoyable place to work. Everyone is respectful and collaborative.

    Cons

    Company is losing its footing. Just laid off half of the company. Shifting focus away from revenue generating activities to a plan that has never made money in the several years they have been trying. Morale is now very low across much of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what the company is good at and what generates revenue. The current focus is a really big gamble and has a very low chance of working.

    I have been working at Teradici full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Passion, commitment and work ethics of most employees
    - Bright and talented individuals
    - Work-life balance
    - Competitive compensation

    Cons

    - Lack of organizational direction
    - Length of service by most senior management team (been on the job for way too long)
    - Lack of advancement and professional development opportunities
    - Too many firings over the last couple of years
    - Two rounds of layoffs in two years with another one most likely on the way as there's no money left in the bank
    - No new investors; limited to no funds left in the bank
    - Low sales numbers
    - Board of directors inability to make decisive decisions

    Advice to Management

    - Unwillingness to listen to criticisms and feedback; CEO tends to fire those that disagree with his vision. CEO needs to listen more to the company's directors and middle management
    - A major shake up in the senior management team is overdue; a new CEO is needed

    I have been working at Teradici full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Teradici is a great place to work. A healthy life work balance is encouraged, and competitive compensation and benefits are offered. I work with many talented people and get to experience genuine comradery and tackle interesting problems on a daily basis. The company has an active social committee and very compassionate and flexible HR policies.

    Having previously worked in a satellite office I find it a benefit that the majority of employees are situated in one place. Transparency is practised across the company as a whole and employees are trusted with sensitive information up to and including the company’s balance sheet! Professional development is encouraged and the annual performance review process is reasonable.

    Teradici offers an interesting product line and is unique in the marketplace with its zero client solution. The company has some top tier customers, but through the Teradici Pervasive Computing Platform is able to support consumers of any size. Teradici has an excellent reputation and a lot of potential for further growth.

    Cons

    Engineering is spread a little thin especially in regards to the quality assurance capabilities of the group. On occasion teams have been forced to incur technical debt in order to deliver features on time. Recent initiatives have started to address both these issues, but there is still a ways to go.

    Historically there has been a bit of a silo mentality whereby teams do their own thing and don’t communicate well with one another. This issue is especially prevalent between the host and client groups, and unfortunately exacerbated as these teams are separated onto different floors.

    Advice to Management

    In general I’d say “keep up the good work”. I’ve seen positive changes over the last little while in regards to improving communication between groups. I believe the multi-day, engineering wide, release train planning sessions, although not the most fun events to attend, are proving beneficial. A bit more notice of all hands meetings would be good; it’s a little nerve wracking to be notified of a companywide meeting the week of. Finally I’d encourage management to keep pushing the envelope on the protocol to embrace emerging technologies sooner rather later.


  11. "Nice environment"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    I worked at Teradici (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice environment, small teams and many company-wise and team-wise events - usually with free food. Most of the employees are very skilled.

    Cons

    The two big teams - server and client - seem to be organized in two very different ways and not coordinate very well with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Better coordination between client and server teams is already being worked on. That will help unite the company and create an identity for the company.
