Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer says

"most people are just waiting to retire ... don't care .. don't want to change. don't want to grow"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"pay excitement /motivation appreciation career advancement"


"Mismanagement at every level Stale technology Many layoffs They use a ridiculous time-management tool to account for your every action/task More layoffs are coming, again sending jobs offshore"


"No career path, unrealistic schedules, demanding working overtime without compensation. Poor environment support. Doesn't give employees tool to be successful. It's almost like they are intended to set people for failures and them blame them. Intimitating employees by hiring overseas. Give out low raises for last decade. Most employees has no voice. If they do voice differ opinion, they will end up being pushed out of the door."


"No real innovations in recent years, staled working environment. Management think that anyone can be replaced, and employees don't have much say as what they want to work on. Company only hires full-timers over-sea at low cost regions. Doesn't value employees, give out minimum raises. Company full of discouraged employees, not a happy working place. No one is excited comes to work, everyone puts in minimum efforts only. The benefits of this company has also been diminishing."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"No growth for entry level / junior engineers. More concern with project progress than engineer personal progress. If you're not a mid-senior engineer, you are treated with a great amount of disrespect from other engineers/management. Poor software engineering management practices. Management is poor."

Current Employee - Software says

"Disrespect from other employees and management. Lots of contracted employment. Very Poor software engineering practices in comparison to other companies and even college projects."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"founder died, current management has very different ideals"

Former Employee - Inventory says

"Mediocre raises. 12 hour workdays expected with no recognition. Work/life balance is not possible. Not much room for advancement. Quick to criticize instead of recognize dedication and hard work. Operations group is fast paced as inventory is a hot area but company should make a point to recognize employee sacrifices and show appreciation."

Engineering Technician (Former Employee) says

"Teradyne corporation don't care about employees ,,they only want to make profit and they will work you off, very stressful place If you say anything you will get fired because they look at you as a number with legs and they fire you over the phone if you working for CDI temporary agency Teradyne are rolling people all the time so expect to get fired or lay off any time"

Software Engineer (Former Employee) says

"Teradyne loves acquiring companies and assume that all companies are like Teradyne, Teradyne acquired Eagle Test in 2009 and pretty much drove it into the ground by not understanding what it did.the roof does not leakeverything"

OTC/FCT Technician for Pilot Line (Former Employee) says

"Until they started to move everything to Malaysia it was a good place to work. Management doesn't always have a clue how to actually perform the production duties so had unrealistic goals"

Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) says

"it might be a good company if you're an EE or Software engineer, but it's a horrible place for MEs. You don't learn any hardcore mechanical. It's all small details that matter for Teradyne products. ME managers got the jobs because they were there for a looooong time. Otherwise, they don't have skills. The pay depends if you have negotiated at the beginning. the rais sucks. leadership is just cruising to retirement."

Verification Lead (Former Employee) says

"Work was very competitive. Time to Market was critical. Quick paced with easy funding for resources. Major issue was collaboration between departments and with major subcontractors. Proper collaborative, aligned team with trust and transparency would have gone a long way in speeding up development.Funding, Cutting Edge work.. Lots of trainngAlignment of different departments"

Test Technician (Former Employee) says

"Former restaurant workers were doing the same job and doing better because they were faster at testing. Electrical engineering know how did not come into play much for a Test Tech job. If you were hired as an engineer it appeared to be a much more interesting job with better pay. The pay was good but I had to go into Boston which was not so good even on 2nd shift. Parking had to be on the street even though they had people on the 1 shift leave spaces open when they went home early.flexible hours and decent pay.speed mattered most and learning a very specific job not overlapping any previous experience."

Test Technician (Former Employee) says

"It was far in the past and not worth talking abt. The text equipment business has a sine was effect meaning that problems cause massive disruptions in and the market place."

Quality Inspector (Former Employee) says

"QA related activities team player and always help others to achieve costumer goals. Meeting and exercise for 30 min parts send with accuracy and within tolerancebad placed too much hours explode on hours not consider family values.you most know some one to enter as a full time employee."

Technical Content Developer (Former Employee) says

"Teradyne can be good or bad depending on which part of the company you work in. Most of it is good with good managers. Again, most of Teradyne is good."

Operador Técnico Maquinas Industriales (Former Employee) says

"Empresa segura, con atencion al desarrollo del personal.Buen ambiente de trabajo.Falta de organizacion para pago de TE."

Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) says

"I want a work place where I am not forced to work. That I am willingly working to help the company grow and at the same time, understands my need as an employee."

Test Hardware Engineer (Former Employee) says

"The work was technically challenging. I worked on Design Complex PCB's used for testing customer devices on automated test equipment. The work required interaction with customers as well as with the Design team I learned how to Deal with customer and build strong relationships. Generate Schematics using ORCAD and Concept Check Design using Cadance allegro design tools. Manage project schedules Part ProcurementFlexible work ScheduleNo plan for employee growth"

Global Network Engineer (Former Employee) says

Material Buyer / Planner (Former Employee) says

"Teradyne es una empresa en la que la estabilidad es uno de sus mayores pilares.seguro medico, bonos y ayuda para estudios"

Engineering Manager (Former Employee) says

"Teradyne has shrunk in headcount about 75% in the US over the past several years. Who is left are long term employees who are smart and are excellent at their job and work well together. It's a well-oiled development machine. Schedule predictability has become very important, which limits risk-taking in development.smart people. good benefitstoo bottom line focused."
