Consultant Software Engineer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 30, 2017
Teradata used to be a company with innovations, and was a leader in the industry. With management changed in the past 10 years, short sighted in seeing the future, plus limit the spending in R&D, no new technology was developed, and instead, just trying to catch up and to be a follower, with what they call the "industry trend". Ended up in too late to deliver the products customers needed.
No stress, no accountability.
Too specialized in one area, poor/short sighted management.

Teradata is the best company that I ever worked for and they are the leaders in their industry! I would highly recommend working at Teradata! The management style was very good with good communication throughout the company. The training was excellent.
Managing Partner (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – October 13, 2017
Management is not open to suggestions, and continues to make decisions without supporting data. Recent changes from industry to geo-based for sales and support organizations was made quickly without understanding culture and customer impact.
Current organizations are now competing for the same customer, confusing the customer in the process. In a recent customer presentation, three different organizations all claimed they were the primary customer focus. The customer recognized this confusion, and consequently dismissed the group, saying "come back when you figure it out".
Additionally, senior architects are scratching their heads on how we are expected to design solutions when competition ingest rates can hit 65TB/hour, with immediate access to data for analytics

While employed by Teradata, working remote was an excellent benefit. When traveling to HQ, the facility was well kept. Parking could be a pain at times. The cafeteria was good and had an excellent selection.
