Good Products and People
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 16, 2019
I like the product and people, but management is driven by SFDC and is too micro managed.

TD is still considered expensive especially against the other options customers can use to solve their problems: AWS, Azure, Snowflake.
Pros
Good 401k matching program, change to new CEO a Plus.
Cons
Slow to Cloud

Company overview on working there
Sr. Strategic Enterprise Sales (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 8, 2018
Excellent company, older technology, poor leadwsehrip, and no marketing. The company was literally run by the management firm (BAIN and CAPITAL) oinvestment company that took it over.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Poor leadership

Official response from Teradata
December 5, 2018

Teradata has been an independent, publicly-traded company since 2007, and our senior leadership have a steady hand on the helm.
Our technology is rated tops by Gartner and other analysts, and our recent release of Teradata Vantage - the only software of its kind, capable of managing all data, all of the time - is the epitome of Pervasive Data Intelligence. Customers can analyze anything, deploy anywhere, and deliver analytics that matter.
On October 8, we launched a multi-million dollar marketing campaign that included multi-page spreads in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, the Financial Times, and Handelsblatt, as well as taking over all of the digital displays at the Oculus PATH terminal at the World Trade Center in Manhattan.
The Teradata of today is very different from the one you describe. Check us out and see if you agree. Best of luck in your current role.

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.

You might want to stop by and visit our offices to see how the new Teradata is doing. I suspect you will be pleasantly surprised.
Teradata has exceeded our performance goals each quarter this year. We re-launched our brand on October 8th, and - as part of that historic event - took over the digital displays in the Oculus PATH terminal in the World Trade Center to proclaim that #WeRiseAbove.
As for compensation, we continuously monitor industry compensation packages to insure our competitiveness and offer excellent packages that include incentives and opportunities to own Teradata stock.
We wish you well in your current and future endeavors.

A place to gain more knowledge
UI Developer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMarch 20, 2018
Everything! The people are all super nice and friendly, probably because we are all treated with respect. Really relaxed, family style atmosphere but doesn't stop your ability to work like some places. Great benefits and snacks/drinks provided. Management really take the time to talk to everyone and listen to opinions. Training budget is great and you are encouraged to use it.

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

Management clueless
Receivables Manager (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHMay 11, 2017
The equipment is cheap and minimal. The work load is large and more tasks added all the time. Management is in another country or state and have no idea what it takes to get the job done. The manager three levels up is a bully and the manager two levels up an out of touch control freak. Departments don't work well together and at times actually hamper your ability to resolve issues by refusing to do their part in the resolution.

It was an ok place
Customer Order Specialist (Former Employee) –  Miamisburg, OHMarch 21, 2016
There was a nice laid back IT officevibe. If you did your work well and showed up to work on time, there was a decent amount of flexibility. The company recently has experienced a reduction in force with lots of uncertainty ahead. Top level execs have received multimillion dollar bonuses/pay outs meanwhile throngs of low level employees even with years of service will receive paltry in comparison severance packages. I wouldn't recommend pursuing a position here during this transitionary time.
Pros
flexible
Cons
long hours, ugly cubicles

Great work/life balance at the cost of a subpar culture
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 13, 2015
Teradata is a great place to work for a variety of reasons. You have flexibility, great benefits, and the people are wonderful. However, you'll soon discover that there are few people within the company that actually understand the entire product line. Everything moves ridiculously slow and the company doesn't invest where it should.
Pros
Work/life balance, Benefits, people
Cons
Culture, management, processes in place

Teradata Changing Landscape
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  El Segundo, CAJune 23, 2015
Teradata has been a good company for employment. Average benefits. Many opportunities to learn technology and database features.

However, over the years, the company has transitioned from a start-up, to an acquired company (ATT/NCR) with top heavy management to now an independent company again, containing traditional management.
Pros
Good locations, competitive salary
Cons
