Teradata keeps laying off the best people who do so much for the company that when the time comes, they'll have to hire minimum two people to replace them (and even that might not be enough.) Am I the only one who thinks this business strategy is... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Teradata Corp.
In this past the big layoffs were in August September. Any insight?
I heard that in the past, Teradata pay isn't competitive and HR plays hardball. Are they still trying to lowball new candidates and lose talented people that may help the company from the death spiral or are they actually trying to be more... — read more
News came that DS, the leader of the EMEA region, is leaving TD 'to pursue opportunities beyond TD', after being with the company for over thirty years. It feels as if the TD ship is sinking. Another executive in EMEA, RR, has left the company as... — read more
Recent town hall was filled with positive news and accolades as each executive talked about wins, winbacks, renewals and new logos. Is this even real or a big lie?
Is there anybody left who actually enjoys working at Teradata? I'm just curious, because all of the people in my department are fed up and are looking for ways to leave (myself included.) I think as soon as more jobs become available once again... — read more
Title: Do not get lulled I was laid off close to my 10 year mark. I liked working there, it was a great place. It was also however like a warm blanket for a long nap. Do not ever get complacent at work. You may think you are super well... — read more
TD is releasing quarterly numbers in the coming weeks. What should we expect?
https://www.forbes.com/sites/greatspeculations/2020/02/18/dont-buy-teradatas-turnaround-story/ What Noise Traders Miss With TDC In general, markets aren’t good at identifying value destroying companies that waste shareholder capital. Instead... — read more
Increased activity by all Teradata big guns on LinkedIn and beyond promoting free trails, fighting legacy perception etc. Is this the new normal or simply desperation at its essence? When will they release the numbers for Q2? Comments or... — read more
3 execs who are milking TDC with little return provided. Go look at the money year after year that they make versus the results delivered as leaders and in their specific functions. For example, Harrington leads services for a long time and services... — read more
They have milked the board slot for too long and need to be replaced with talented board members. They allowed Vic and then Oliver to be highly compensated and drive terrible results. Lots of other critical mistakes under their watch. They must... — read more
With Europe being hit hard in the past two days, are we next? How worried should I be about today?
Significant layoffs in Europe today. Up to 50% in some teams.
Noticed in Barrons 6/15/2020 page M5. Teradata is number 2 in the weekly most active options with 71553 calls and 2180 puts.
Is R&D dead?
Teradata (NYSE:TDC) shares gain 4.7% after Reorg M&A says the company could attract PE interest. https://seekingalpha.com/news/3581970-teradataplus-4_7-on-m-speculation?utm_source=markets.businessinsider.com&utm_medium=referral
https://seekingalpha.com/news/3581970-teradataplus-4_7-on-m-speculation Who could be eyeing TD, Oracle, Google are two I can think of. Google is behind and could really stir the pot.
doesn't seem like there is any financial benefit at all?
They are already blaming the virus and the effects hadn’t kicked in yet in Q1. Like they said in Jurassic Park, hang onto your butts in Q2.
6 of my team members were ejected today. I spoke to all of them and to summarize... They each had a short call, and told me to beware of short 15 to 30 minute meeting invites that come in the inbox a day prior or the morning on the day of. They all... — read more
Rumor that a “Big announcement ” will take place on the earnings call. Anyone have a clue on what it is?
A big whale out of Sweden is shopping around looking for help to migrate off Vantage. Costs are the driving force behind this move. Any thoughts?
I just can’t wait for this. Popcorn ready, better than any Netflix movie
I feel sad and worry for a lot of good people I left behind at Teradata. I left (was made redundant) exactly a year ago. And I've been happy ever since, been watching the "pit from the edge of the colosseum" so to speak! And things arent looking good... — read more
Reorgs are happening, and so is some cleanup. Again the people that might be getting the boot are the ones that actually care and have talent. Looks like in the couple of weeks.
Wow. A mad scramble to try and stop the bleeding. You’re too late, the patient died months ago.
wonder what is he up to now!!!
I'd be very surprised if there is any good news (coronavirus discounted and not an alibi) in the quarterly earnings for Q1. After the last earnings call, the management group and Board should be summarily dismissed and I'll bet they have a hard time... — read more
What is next for us? Keep calm and carry on…
So "rewarding top talent" will now become "no merit raise for you". We have studied it and you make too much compared to what other companies pay for your description. Therefore we have determined that we are too good to you already and not... — read more
