With the recent departure of CM in APJ, it seems the purge against those who spoke out against her has begun with a SD given their marching orders. And in return they reward a loyal lieutenant of CM. It hasn't taken too long, only a few weeks for the... — read more
Nothing can save TD
I dont think theres anything that can save Teradata. They've laid off the people that could have made changes. Multiple times! ELT is poor + only concerned about cashing out stock. On top of all that the Board must be asleep at the wheel because if... — read more
2023 TINO owns it all ... short term gain ... still will be gone in the long term
Kudos for pulling the wool over the world to deliver earnings and raise the share prices by laying off the people that can help the business. ELT have dismantled everything, products, organization, culture, people , process, morale... They´ve... — read more
Public Service for Anyone Considering Teradata
I joined Teradata as Senior Director and stayed for more than half a year when I was laid-off. I have already moved on, but I keep seeing people celebrating getting hired by Teradata on LinkedIn. So, I figured I would be just an accomplice if I let... — read more
More of the same in the future ... bad mgmt and layoffs
ELT and mgmt now is bad but no improvements in sight. They´re training their disciples to ensure it continues. Just see who are favorites among their chronies and what have they done ...
What´s folks doing for wellness day?
I probably work and see if I sort through resumes for candidates like JW. Might review NC speech when came on board to get some inspiration.
Teradata was an absolute nightmare from start to finish
Everything, and I'm talking about every single thing, was just plain awful. The work environment was toxic with a capital T. Constant backstabbing and high-school politics are an everyday occurrence. Not to mention, I got so much work piled on our... — read more
Post about JW, is a new Teradata Layoff Board record
Scroll down and you will see the JW post, it has 3900 views, 48 comments with over 500 up arrows. SM and KCC still do nothing.
Why come back to this place? ... desperation ... and it never works out
ELT is looking to hire back a number of people but why would anyone want to come back to this place? What has changed? It´s the same group of arrogant people that no one trust or respect. Some have made a sport of leaving and returning multiple... — read more
Layoffs will continue to fund indoctrination and line ELT pockets ... everyone else get chump change
No one stand to gain more than ELT in recent layoffs... certainly less expenses make it look like they are doing their jobs but their incompetency and political vindictiveness got rid of so many good people. Along with less headcount cost are the... — read more
ELT gloats on higher earnings from lower revenue after layoffs ...
ELT had the gall to gloat on earnings derived from multiple layoffs, declining revenue, and fewer new customers. While many posters are expressing frustration of a workplace that ignore them and helping their peers to cope and transition, ELT and... — read more
This site has gone silent
Is everything just peachy at TD?
Lower Revennue + Layoffs = Higher Earnings ... Hmmm looks like more layoffs in the future
A old trick ... when not making money ... squeeze the expenses ... this is exactly what happened and it will continue ... This can only go on for so long before the whole thing collapse but hey, the directors and above will be long gone by... — read more
Repeat after me ... pump and dump ...
Everyone working here knows the product is what it is, late to market and short on capabilities, the organization is infested with incompetent management on the job training, and now trying to do a hype job to cash out. Just see who are all selling... — read more
What would make us a better company
Seriously, what moves would improve things???
All quiet on Western Coast…
Right before the quarterly results this forum gets chatty, but it looks pretty quiet out here. Nothing to vent anymore? Everything happy on all fronts (p.s. not a typical gaslighting post)
We are not financial analysts but we do know the pulse.
Culture is going downhill
I haven't been around Teradata long (12 months), but I have been around long enough to know that locally our culture is going downhill. I'm in the GTM team for an APJ country and we've been witnessing a gradual decline over the past 12 months of an... — read more
Burning Man CTO Post Deleted
Why? Character matters, especially with “leaders” and there was nothing untrue. Cancel culture is getting old…
Snowflake Passes Teradata in DBMS Marketshare
You could see it coming but it’s still hard to believe. This is what happens when your CTO is a cloud denier. #TDCGotSnowballed
Gartner DBMS Market Share Shows TDC Dropping Like A Rock
Gartner's latest 2022 analysis shows Snowflake and Mongo passing Teradata. Teradata even dropped out of the top ten. The chart shows the accelerated decline started in 2015. I doubt you will see any social media posts from Teradata on this but SM... — read more
Teradata Glory Days - Everyone knows they're gone...

The Day The Teradata Music Died - when exactly ?
There's no disputing the light at Teradata has flickered out long ago...and this place is heading into the abyss with parasites and vultures looting the coffer. When would you say the exact moment it began? Was it when the wrong people was hired... — read more
Celebrate The Past
Maybe Teradata should give each new customer a bar of soap shaped like our old Hardware Platforms. A soap DBC1012 and perhaps a 5100+. Well we have no new customers so I guess we would need to keep the soap. It is the only way we can clean up this... — read more
Everything is broken
Current management continues in same downward direction. No sense of urgency from day one, arrogantly spew my way or highway, operate on fad of the month vs what the company needs and what the workers tell them, and now in desperation mode... — read more
Teradata, joined Kodak, Blockbuster, Polaroid, Borders, ... long ago, too late to recover ... you be the judge
Some will have us believe that Teradata can be saved and does not have to be another Kodak, Blockbuster, ... they could not be more wrong. They are making desperate appeals to save their own hides and to continue to enrich themselves on the backs of... — read more
ELT desperation plea to enrich themselves ... don´t fall for it
Directors and above have different incentive plans than the people that do the actual work. They get rewarded big even if morale is low, revenue is down, and lack of customers. This group is just as arrogant and dismissive of all that tried to help... — read more
TO MAKE THIS COMPANY SUCCESSFUL, WE NEED DIRECTORS, ELT, & BoD TO RESIGN TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN
People who really care about this company's perspective: Yes, this company is broken beyond repair. Time to abandon ship and start over. Trust in product quality and broken internal processes and systems are least of our problem. Strategy... — read more
Teradata is a talent-repellent
I can't believe how frustrating it is to see talented people come and go at Teradata! No high performer sticks around for long. And who could blame them? This place is toxic and outdated. It's a has-been, plain and simple. The lack of vision and... — read more

Teradata-The Mainframe of Data Warehouses
Mainframes still exist. Teradata EDWs still exist. But no company would build a modern IT or data architecture on either one. This is why Teradata does not report new customer wins. Companies are stuck with both for awhile longer. But time is not on... — read more
"Length of runway"
Q:: How long before TDC disappears (bought, taken private, Chapter 11, etc)? Important for people to gauge the remaining time/commitment.
I've changed the way I work
After Teradata started doing layoffs without considering employees' performance, I decided to use all the extra time I would have spent doing overtime to apply for other job opportunities. It's just not worth putting in all that effort here if... — read more

JW has more ethics violations than we have new logos
Just ask HR and her team, but she can’t be fired. KCC if this is what you call DEI in action, then count me out.
Who wins if Teradata is taken over? the usual people of course
While revenue is declining, there's enough ARR so that this place won't fold overnight and still allow the ELT to milk it a bit longer. However, pressure will mount and this place won't be an ongoing concern. Should this place be taken over, all... — read more
"be a part of an amazing comeback story" - want to take high risk being laid off?
Someone still think they can turn this place around and "be a part of an amazing comeback story". Good luck. If you have the time and willing to take a risk and waste the best part of your earning years, this is the place. Even with a good... — read more
Big sign of sinking ship and no recovery in sight ...

Only at Teradata where CEO rewarded for decline in earnings
If this is CEO Steve's compensation, the ELT most likely reaped the same increases. Compensation vs Market: Steve's total compensation ($USD15.04M) is above average for companies of similar size in the US market ($USD6.80M). Compensation vs... — read more
