Customer Order Specialist (Former Employee) – Miamisburg, OH – March 21, 2016
There was a nice laid back IT officevibe. If you did your work well and showed up to work on time, there was a decent amount of flexibility. The company recently has experienced a reduction in force with lots of uncertainty ahead. Top level execs have received multimillion dollar bonuses/pay outs meanwhile throngs of low level employees even with years of service will receive paltry in comparison severance packages. I wouldn't recommend pursuing a position here during this transitionary time.
Teradata is a good company to work for. With the pre-sale announcement that they were going to sell off their marketing applications divisions, many sales motions came to a halt. Hopefully, the new owners will take the old Aprimo products in a good direction.
PS Consultant Level III (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 12, 2016
I was lucky. At the right place at the right time. My experience at Teradata was nothing shot of a great American story. My experience demonstrates what can happen when a company looks at an individuals skills from a personal prespective and evaluates what that person could accomplish when given the proper opportunites.
Most employees were not American computer STEM workers.
technical consultant (Former Employee) – virtual – November 6, 2015
Most of the employees at Teradata did not have the appropriate computer educations to be working for this company. It seemed as if they hired MBAs and tried to turn them into Technical Consultants or Watchdogs; Upper management seemed OK, middle management was unprofessional to say the least and in my opinion a great reason for the downfall of this company. There was ZERO logical reason for this downfall other than recruiting people with appropriate educational backgrounds and getting rid of DEAD WOOD long ago.
It was an honor to work for this company. Unfortunately, the place is ridden with unqualified employees who know nothing about computers and do not have any genuine interest in Teradatas products. Managers were more like just money/recruiter people.
Senior Software Engineer (Full-time) (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 14, 2015
Lots of self-inflicted problems that come from political disagreement. Otherwise a very good place to work. If you can handle typical big company culture, this is a good place to work. I'd say it is very similar to Salesforce in many ways, but overall has a very conservative engineering culture that is somewhat reluctant to change.
good pay, nice coworkers, fun place to work
decent amount of office politics, wishy washy decision making and self inflicted wounds
Friendly casual atmosphere where everyone helps each other
Customer Order Specialist (Current Employee) – Miamisburg, OH – August 11, 2015
Work is never the same on an given day. Closely work with Sales and Accounts Receivable to ensure all customer files are accurate and in order.
Throughout my years with NCR/Teradata, I have learned the value of hard work. My careers have taught me to be self-motivated and adjust to a fast pace with high stress. I have almost all accountablitity of the customer invoicing and services.
I do not think I can pinpoint the hardest part of my job. I enjoy working with Sales and the customers. I also enjoy working with my co-workers.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the statisfaction I get after a hard day of work. I know I have given 100% of myself for the sake of my conscience and also the company.
Casual work wear
Distance from home / Not a lot of flexibility for work hours
