Business Consultant (Current Employee) – Garden City, NY – April 19, 2018
Teradata was a fun place to work and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there - I was brought in to break a vertical and although it was difficult at first when we hit our stride we were incredibly successful. The teams that i worked with required close collaboration and we were winning and growing the business by building relationships.
Benefits, people, freedom to develop
consulting unit was restructured each of the last three years
Global Credit Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 18, 2018
Work/life balance is terrible. Compensation is well below industry. Management within the Controllers group is poor and will blatantly lie to employees. Career advancement during my tenure was non-existent across the entire company. Working on your vacation is an expectation. They provide a corporate phone which as an international company called at all hours of the day and an expectation of working 24 hours a day as well.
The corporate solution to fiscal issues is to layoff employees. There is never any attempt to fix the problem that caused the issue. The issues are usually poor upper management schoice in corporate direction.
I was hired to return them to a solutions-driven approach. They decided to return to a product-driven approach. Management needs to understand that approaching sales from a "solution looking for a problem" will be unacceptable to most prospects.
Lead Development Representative (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 3, 2018
Enjoyed the environment and the flexibility. Entered the office at 7 am conducted outreach for client meetings. Usually engaged in a conference call for account planning for the top 100 companies. I typically worked out at lunch and concluded my day educating myself on data trends to leverage for new opportunities.
SENIOR SOFTWARE QA ENGINEER (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 23, 2018
There were many opportunities with Teradata to learn and contribute to different teams. I enjoyed my job since I was focused on developing software tests for the new complex Teradata's features. Management was average since they just managed down and not up and that way the higher managers will not get a clear idea of what really is taking place.
Senior Security Architect (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 17, 2018
In my professional career, working experience at Teradata is the BEST. No doubt about it. Very informal environment, but at the same time very collaborative as all the team members were always trying their best to make others successful and champion. This is truly amazing. At the same when do you have support from a very matured environment, life is truly balanced in all respect. Willing to back to the same org at point in time ...
A typical day at work started at 9 am and ended at 5 pm and working overtime was common. I learned Teradata SQL, App Dynamics, improved business communication skills. Teradata has a great culture. The hardest part of the job is getting outrsourced by HCL in India. I loved the people and the technology here at Teradata.
I really enjoyed my work at Teradata. Teradata gives you a lot of freedom. It is a great place if you want to get a lot of new experiences because they will throw you right in. You have to be able to be scrappy and learn things quickly. You have an opportunity to work with a lot of different clients and there is a lot of autonomy as far as how you manage your relationship and work with the client.
I only left because the work started to dry up and I was going into a year where I was not going to make my billable hours target. There is not a lot of upside with meeting the target unfortunately, but I am someone who really enjoys solving problems and learning and I couldn't sit on the bench for 12 months.
great opportunities to work with clients
company is struggling to find its way in a world of open source
Sr. PS Consultant - America (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – December 19, 2017
I have been at Teradata for almost 12 years. They have been fair and supportive. The difficult issue with the job is being dependent on sales people for livelihood when the emphasis of sales is not consulting.
Manager of Business Development (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 18, 2017
Teradata is a great place to work. There's a good work-life balance and the technology is top notch. Customers know who you and are what you do which helps immensely. Their the leader within their respective industry.
They try to make things fun in Dayton with quarterly parties for the associates
Global Credit Card Administrator, Duties (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – December 3, 2017
I have enjoyed my time at Teradata for the most part, have had some issues with former Managers that were let go for confidential reasons. I enjoy the Teradata Cares options to help people in our area who are less fortunate. My work is good, helping associates with their credit card issues. Teradata is an ok place to work.
