Manhattan was a fun office but coporate mgmt is poor and the compensation is low.
Senior Capital Markets Officer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 12, 2018
Back when I worked for Teradata, the Manhattan office was a fun place to work, although I did not spend a lot of time there. I had a great consulting assignment with Standard & Poor's. Teradata corporate management, at the time, was truly antique. The total compensation was also quite low, which led me to seek employment elsewhere.
Pros
Nice co-workers.
Cons
Low compensation; poor corporate management.

Great events team, sorry to leave
Events Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHAugust 31, 2018
The team works hard and the work can be stressful at times, but managers expect success and bring it out in their teams. Overall, an incredibly cohesive, well-run, positive events team experience. Hated to leave but was offered a much higher-paying position much closer to home.
Pros
Great events leadership that really knew their stuff, fun travel, long hours but worked remote
Cons
Contract positions lasted far too long before hiring opportunities arose

Lost
Client Director (Former Employee) –  United StatesJuly 31, 2018
Teradata has lost their direction and focus. Poor management and defective products have been a large part of this downward spiral. There are a lot of very talented people who work for TD but their skills are often lost in the bureaucracy and internal politics.

Teradata former Software Division
Operations Architect (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 24, 2018
Working in the CTO organization on the recently divested software division was an experience of working with truly dedicated and highly intelligent & skilled individuals. Seem Teradata part just couldn't find a means to execute in the initial vision for the software (marketing) division, even with global acquisitions.

No longer employed
Sr. Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHMarch 26, 2018
Work environment was great and was able to work from home. First boss was great til he was laid off.

Outsource job to foriegn company.

After being laid off, is when you saw how everything changed. HR process was not every well handled and did not guide individuals thru the termination process. Had to wait a month for first severance pay and did not receive bonus that was promised. Gave high hopes for something that never was coming to a person that suddenly laid off and worked hard the entire previous year.

Least to say very disappointing outcome.

Account Director, Media & Entertainment Group (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 21, 2018
Teradata struggles in 2 key areas-- management and marketing. Neither are valued at the senior level, so the company suffers. The people are kind and many of them smart. The culture is variable depending on your location and manager.

mgt
Sr. Director Global Professional Services (Current Employee) –  Dayton, OHFebruary 22, 2018
new mgt is not communicating at any level and long time employees are and will be walking.

think big running this company is not the route to go as they don't know the customer nor get into the field. And not technical at all.

Great people and technology, senior leadership is a revolving door
Consulting Director (Current Employee) –  Virtual US - SouthwestFebruary 1, 2018
I have been at Teradata for 4.5 years now and have had 5 titles and 6 supervisors with at least 8 different sales strategies. The technology is fantastic! The customers are amazing. My work teams have been awesome. Executive leadership is lost. I hate that I'm even writing this and putting my resume out, but I truly love our company. However, I am faced with the 4th reorg since I joined in 2013 and worry that this might be the time that out of touch leadership cuts too deep.
Pros
Good pay, great people, great technology, great customers
Cons
Not a solid direction or the ability to execute from the top down

Voice Network Engineer (Current Employee) –  Dayton, OHJanuary 11, 2018
mass layoffs in IT. Outsourcing most of IT to India. All decisions made in San Diego. Dayton, OH HQ is a skeleton crew with no management.

No loyalty to the Dayton area.

Management changed
Consultant Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CANovember 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.
Pros
No stress, no accountability.
Cons
Too specialized in one area, poor/short sighted management.
