Corporate/company changes are on-going. HQ has been relocated to CA. Local company footprint/presence is rapidly decreasing. Good vision and good people.

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.

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.

Just had a really bad manager
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHNovember 8, 2017
It was one of those rare people that just didn't manage well. It made it really difficult to work there. It happens every once in a while, and this was my once in a while I guess.

Poor follow through and management
Managing Partner (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COOctober 13, 2017
Management is not open to suggestions, and continues to make decisions without supporting data. Recent changes from industry to geo-based for sales and support organizations was made quickly without understanding culture and customer impact.

Current organizations are now competing for the same customer, confusing the customer in the process. In a recent customer presentation, three different organizations all claimed they were the primary customer focus. The customer recognized this confusion, and consequently dismissed the group, saying "come back when you figure it out".

Additionally, senior architects are scratching their heads on how we are expected to design solutions when competition ingest rates can hit 65TB/hour, with immediate access to data for analytics

Good place to work when data warehousing was lucrative
Anonymous Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAOctober 6, 2017
Learned that old school companies need to begin transforming earlier in the product life cycle.

This company is currently going through a transformation, and soon to have a new CEO, and is seriously late to the market with the cloud database solution.

The company needs to create a workplace that is sustainable, cooperative, collaborative, and transformational.
Pros
Great location and insurance benefits
Cons
Communication and siloed infrastructure

Very knowledgeable teammates and technical managers. People here understand the learning curve and have been very helpful.

Remote Employee
DevOps/AWS Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CASeptember 6, 2017
While employed by Teradata, working remote was an excellent benefit. When traveling to HQ, the facility was well kept. Parking could be a pain at times. The cafeteria was good and had an excellent selection.
