In previous posts, someone mentioned creating a Facebook Group in order gather and communicate information. I was a part of the March 2018 Layoff and have taken the initiative to setup a private group communication as an initial step. I have created... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Teradata Corp.
Starting to hear that over the past 30 days there have been a significant uptick in sales PIP plans and some sales folks even being let go. These seem to be primarily impacting the new account acquisition (prospecting only) teams, but not limited... read more

I heard the Vic is coming to Dayton for a big all hands meeting for all employees. Is this the beginning of the end for Dayton???
The motives behind these firings look a bit fishy. Employees fired here are being replaced by cheaper h1b candidates brought from India. That indicates a potential abuse and manipulation. Bringing candidates for replacement is not legal. Some of us... read more
I will work as Software Test Engineer at TeraData on Viewpoint product. I am not sure about overall outlook for this group/product and I heard many test engineers were laid off at TeraData in past. Can someone advise, please?
I've been hearing lately that we are gearing for another reorganization later this year. Does anybody here have more info on that? We all know that reorganization is just a fancy name for layoffs, so I'd like to be prepared if they are about to hit... read more
From the severance document, the employee who got laid off last August supposedly should get prorated 2017 AIP. Has anyone got it or that was totally a lie?
Has anyone from the 3/23/18 Layoff actually received their payout? Most companies will payout their Severance agreements within 24 hours of signatures... however TD has yet to provide payout on the signed Severance agreements. Since Severance... read more
One of the affected employees told me the number was 300. All of them older well comprensated highly experienced people. From what I saw, this seems like exactly what happened. Considering that it looks like older employees were specifically targeted... read more
Looks like the roasting process just got started. This won’t be the last.
Do we finally know what's the final number of people who were laid off last week? And while on the subject, do we know for sure it is done, or should we be worried more layoffs will be incoming sometime this week? This whole never knowing if layoffs... read more
Layoffs were the heaviest in PS, lots of consultants and Client Directors.... Severance was ironically based on "Job Level" (considering the new leveling transformation). Very poor package provided, especially now that no vacation time is paid out... read more
We are hearing Friday TD will have RIF.
Teradata used to be an excellent company to work for, but somewhere down the line, they sold their soul (around 2013/2014, I think). I know because I was there from the start (when they were a division of NCR). Mike Koehler was the absolute best... read more
anyone know about this job leveling project that's underway? How will this impact employees? Good or bad? Seems like an opportunity for them to pay their people less money.
Over the years I’ve experienced Teradata’s struggle with maintaining any type of long-term focus or steering us into any type of strategic direction. We seem to be going through an identity crisis. I understand change is difficult, but how can that... read more
Is it another Facebook rumor? Heard tech employees at the Teradata company outsourced to India. Some truth to rumor? Do what we did when BofA sent our jobs outside USA. Apply for trade adjustment assistance cause it helped us with job hunt... read more
Interviewed in San Diego back in March of this year and also went to the San Francisco Bay area to meet with some people. At the same time a Caucasian friend with lesser skills also interviewed. We planned this because we had heard that Teradata HR... read more
I work at Teradata full-time. It’s a great job if you enjoy traveling or want to get your feet wet. That aside, Management leaves a lot to be desired. There is an undeniable shortage of training in their position, coupled with their lack of people... read more
Seriously, why is change such a bad word here? Why is it still acceptable in this day and age to continue doing things that can be improved so easily the same old way just because those near the top who've been with Teradata for several decades... read more
So hear that there was "good" bonuses for upper CS leaders. Best in years...?? Does this make any sense? Is it even bonus time?
After several "re-orgs" that included recently terminating multiple highly successful individuals in Sales (something most companies would never do), the word is that there is yet another round of layoffs coming in the next 45 days ahead of the New... read more
No more accrued vacation time starting on January 2018. The new business strategy is to keep the teams perpetually understaffed and so it will be difficult to take vacation.
Is virtual CS area going to see some reductions as well?
It's hard to see things getting better - are we going to have job reductions in corporate in Dayton.
I got a mail from this career counseling and placement agency to help me in my transition. Its surprising to see this is happening after about 3 wees of firing. Teradata never told about it. Agency is directly reaching to me. Is this a genuine thing?... read more
I always thoguht you guys are are a great company???

Get ready, rumor is there are more reorganizations (aka layoffs) coming. Teradata has a big footprint in California. In CA, if a company lays off more than 30 (more or less, not sure of the exact number) in a month, the company has to pre-report the... read more
PS management is lead by a guy who is opportunistic.. he stabbed his own boss to get this previous job.. then he threw few more guys under the bus and then he got his current job.. his track record is so bad that the only reason he has a job is... read more
More silent layoffs happening at Think Big. Another not so silent round planned for end of month?
If you silently suffer and take the abuse then you are part of the problem. I read some of the posts and it is heart wrenching. It is important for some of the existing employees who are still part of Teradata to share their brothers and sisters who... read more
The package given by Teradata is a joke... Hope few of the laid off employees get together and go after them... When you look carefully at the list they have gone after people who are older and have been with them longer.. I wish VL had gone after... read more
This company is a sinking ship. When I started with the company I was told I was doing a good job. But I still got abused, every time they need someone to travel I was told I needed to go. I missed out on birthdays, holidays and anniversaries. So... read more
Anybody else noticed how they no longer use terms like layoffs, instead they just announce reorganizations and start letting people go. I guess it has a better ring to it, and it keeps employees from getting too worked up about it. I will not even go... read more
Teradata should fire all the VP's who haven't produced anything for the past 20 quarters. For a company that has less than 2.5B in revenue we have too many VP's.
The company is run by management who have no clue on how to change with the changing times. Never came up with strategies to be in Cloud or to acquire good company. We bought Claraview which was a disaster.. then the "think Big" which was over priced... read more
