Thread regarding Teradata Corp. layoffs

DCT 2019

Why does LT have a fake game face on with smiles and cheers as if its all good, INSTEAD it is time to throw a Hail Mary. As an employee, I feel like sh*t. I saw my superstar colleagues get walked out of their jobs. I am in sales at a major account with $$$ but I am not motivated to perform and will focus my energy landing another job after DCT is over. I know others feel the same but not sharing it in open. On the PS side, things will not change until Trump stops the unlimited supply of Indian workforce coming in and low balling our PS quotes. This applies to both US and Canada. Being in Vancouver today I particularly feel bad for Canadians as the Indian workforce is hitting Canada hard and the Canadian government is supportive of it. It is time to make Canada great again!!!

I heard that the guy who won the Bently was also let go. :)

I am curious about the 800+ number for the 1/7/2019 RIF. Where did you get confirmation of that number. The only number I was aware of was a fraction of that. Not that I doubt it, would just like some confirmation of the accuracy

Days prior to DCT, 800+ employees let go. Day 1 of DCT - smiling executives many of whom had strong personal relationships with those that were let go, appearing as if nothing changed. Either delusional, they don't care, or they are the "us" and everyone else is "them" (probably all of the above). Personally know many employees let go that were critical to bringing hundreds of millions of dollars into the company over the years, including landing huge deals in 2018, and all they received was a phone call to let them know they are no longer needed. Culture matters, and I feel sorry for those that remain - they would never understand how good this company used to be........

Check out the picture with execs in all cheers and joy. They are laughing after canning 800 people. Do they really care?

The Bentley is probably going with the CRO on his way out the door.

The problem are not Indian:

TD products il dead ...like Mainframe

Declining but profitable if they spin off services.

In DCT this message was clear and all is ready for the spin off.

Exactly like Oracle and IBM 10 years ago

So, who won the Bentley for 2018? Inquiring minds want to know.

Rumor has it that several sales teams that made their numbers and booked large deals were given the heave-ho last week.

it’s just going to keep getting worse. Remember the end game here is a sizable sale to a competitor.

TD does and will never have thevmarket share of its competition.
