Topics regarding layoffs at Teradata Corp.
How about a bit of healthy growth for a change - I do hear that we may have layoffs in Dayton.
We were hired by a VP who had suddenly quit 3 days after our project start. A few weeks after, the Ptoduct Owner left TD. Newly inexperienced director, with zero knowledge about Agile was pushed by the Sr. VP to take over the responsibility of the... read more
He posted some documents a while back on the 2015 thread that I hadn't seen before, and he's said some other things that make him look like an insider. Does anyone know who this person is? Some of those documents never made it to rank and file... read more
I interviewed at TD in San Diego about a year ago and it was the most chaotic, unprofessional event I've experienced in the last decade. I was to meet with 4 separate hiring managers. The first guy didn't understand why he had to be dragged into the... read more
Why is Taradata posting sales jobs in the O&G market? We are still stuck in the low $40s with no change insight?
Sounds like more layoffs here
Most infrastructure layoffs are complete, but expect additional layoffs once TMA is sold. The business continues to decline, so don't be surprised if more RIF's occur (unfortunately not at the leadership level)
Rumor has it that they are making a 20% reduction in Workforce by end of month. Anyone know which departments? I know several from CS & Engineering were let go yesterday.
Does anyone know if there will be a AIP payout in March? If so, any idea of the percentage?
They will be bought soon.

The old data big is equal the big mess. Real-time business integration intelligence is the new big data. The only question is whoever can make creating real-time business analytic solution as easy as creating an Ad-hoc reporting will be the next... read more
Am I the only one that notices that our "360" review process means everyone above me reviews me, but I get to give no feedback on them? That's not 360, is it?
I can't publish this internally, no one would listen and if someone did i would probably get fired. With multiple mortgages and an alimony i can't afford that. So i am putting this here hopefully for people to read and discuss/comment. Question: What... read more
The fact that they have not spoken to the remaining employees or media throughout this RIF speaks volumes. Why these guys get to keep their jobs after obviously being asleep at the wheel for many years is beyond reason. Shareholders need to hold the... read more
I was a planner at TD and it was March of 2014 that I said "if they start cutting into headcount, we aren't coming back from it." By August of 2015, they had laid off over 100 people in CS and the salesforce. I constantly got inquiries from upper... read more
Ask it here
Got a meeting invite around noon today for a call at 2pm. It seemed like manager was reading a script. To sum it off I got canned.
Re-Post taken from the main Thread. Breaking down the barriers between the traditional data warehouse and big data What does this mean in real terms? Does it mean rationalizing the current portfolio as someone suggested? Does it mean removing the... read more
Who has heard anything about who TD is shopping the marketing division to, or who may be interested? Please post here.
I was laid off from Teradata right before Christmas and I received a week severance for every year of service. However, I also received a copy of the 2016 severance package and Teradata seems to be switching from a week for every year of service to a... read more
I have been a loyal employee (CSR) since the pre NCR days and have been happy here for the most part. Teradata has always taken good care of me despite that fact that they pay less then their competitors I have been ok with this because of the... read more
Has anyone heard of any solid intel on potential buyers? No general speculation but legit talks...
Aside from exec salaries these guys are our biggest expense/burden. They run expense accounts. Why do they need to travel from coast to coast for a short 1 hour meeting that has no outcome. Reviewing GL and working on year end activities... read more
This is a repost, it was on one of the theads, listed as a reply: Here is a theory on selling TD. The CEO to be has left, perhaps he didn't want to sell the business, perhaps he was too aggressive, we will probably never know and is replaced by an... read more
RIFs started yesterday in Dayton, not just for admin people. I'm in Finance and was given a termination date in January 2016
I am working with the Teradata RDMS since 20 years , one year employed with Teradata, most of the time working on a contract for different clients. I only can talk about the situation in Europe: We have a high price pressure on rates, leading to a... read more
Seriously....if anyone of any importance happens to click through to this site (no offense to the rest of us rank and file that have been lighting up this forum), why in the world would you wait until Q2 to sell the remainder of Teradata (assuming... read more
Trigger pull was delayed by Bob Fair so he could assess the impact given his new COO title/responsibilities. Too bad Hermann was let go. He had the aggressive strategy to turn things around. I guess too aggressive for the "NCR culture" Board of... read more
Whats going to happen on 12/11?
Good luck to everyone!!!
