Wonderful Company to work for
Dedicated Account System Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAOctober 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.
Pros
Virtual Work Place

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.

Company Undergoing 3rd Year of Transformation
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.
