"Teradyne is an excellent company to work for, I highly recommend it. I worked there twice, once full time for 15 years and more recently on contract for 13 months. The problem space is exciting, you work on the bleeding edge of technology. The people you work with are knowledgeable, and helpful. They are fun to work with!"

"Pros: Worked here since 2006. Excellent culture, life-work balance, innovation and drive to succeed. Very relaxed when no deadlines, and reasonably pressured during deadlines. But no stress! Excellent colleagues, great bosses, and a kind environment. Cons: very limited space for growth. Upward mobility is very limited"

Engineering Manager
in Woburn, MA

"TER is struggling to adjust to a market that it has worked to shrink. Growth is near zero, and senior management is too risk averse to explore new options. Line and 2nd level Engineering managers receive great latitude/freedom in which to operate, but are frequently required to spend considerable time/effort to justify expenditures. The new regime of bean-counters-in-charge may be appropriate for the maturing market, but it's not the same fantastic engineering company it used to be."

Application Engineer

"I started working for Teradyne on 2/20/1984 until 8/2013. After almost 30 years, I moved from Test Engineer to Test Development Engineer to Application Engineer in System Engineering. I was the last person on the team to get laid off after the work was outsourced and business was slowing down. In general, Teradyne is a high tech company. It is a good company to work for. Its environment is good and colleagues are nice."
