Dedicated Account System Support Engineer (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – October 27, 2018
Teradata has afforded many carrier advancement opportunities. While the current company transformation has been difficult it has resulted in a solid company that I would recommend to anyone looking to seek employment that could lead into retirement.

- Nothing much to be said. - No processes. - No performance goals or reviews. - Architects clueless. - NO MERITOCRICY.
- Most people work 11 - 5pm and produce mediocre unplanned outcome. - No snacks. - VP makes work hard and then drops the product. - VP left in the middle of his own project. - Constant change in directions.
- Constant attrition.
You will forget all good engineering practices you had
Manhattan was a fun office but coporate mgmt is poor and the compensation is low.
Senior Capital Markets Officer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 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.
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.
Great events leadership that really knew their stuff, fun travel, long hours but worked remote
Contract positions lasted far too long before hiring opportunities arose

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.

Operations Architect (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 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.
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.

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.
