As this is an option now... Could you share the thinking behind this decision?
Topics regarding layoffs at Teradata Corp.
While you worry about your survival, rest assured the ELT are being taken care of. https://apple.news/Afuhh8geKRQ67Zn8KQa65Ug
It is pretty clear that we are all just a head to be cut regardless of performance. Is there any reason we shouldn't unionize like google did?
Now that the I have been here since before NCR crew is finally leaving, what are the odds that we get bought?
Should we warn them?
The word is that it might be either in the late December or in early January and it will involve operations (finance, accounting, deal desk). Anyone heard the same?
I sure don’t see anything supporting a rise.
There doesn’t seem to be a reason...
Now they can hire clueless junior people cheaper to continue the downward spiral of what was once a great company with the best product capabilities. Now you have software that doesn’t perform and is full of empty promises; just like Teradata ELT... — read more
I just read a post on LinkedIn that AWS is partnering with BMW to 'to Accelerate Data-Driven Innovation' https://www.press.bmwgroup.com/global/article/detail/T0322118EN/aws-and-bmw-group-team-up-to-accelerate-data-driven-innovation Teradata have... — read more
While visiting Linkedin, it looks like the “Teradata lays off only to turn around to kick off a hiring surge” comments made here are true? Why discard existing talent for “budget reasons” only to re-hire “like” positions?
I challenge KCC and the rest of the politically frenzied, self centered ELT to attend the Factory training and pass a certification fair and square. Sweat the brow. Understand what makes us great. Touch and feel engineering, respect it. Don't act... — read more
The earlier funny post about TD bending backwards, appears deleted. TheLayoff are you censoring content? Do we need to distribute messages underhand, peer to peer, now?
Teradata’s realistic prospects are dim. So how will it end? I doubt any rational company would buy us. We’re losing market share and the technology race. We’re laying off the qualified and experienced people and leaving the buttkissing clueless... — read more
Reduced from 600 to 300 in 2020. Further reduction in 2021 expected. Focus on getting work done by GDC, Contractors and Partners
The latest RIF was preceded by yet another cycle of old leadership out, new leadership in. I started looking for offer letters on SEC and found some info, put it up on this etherpad, maybe other folks can add in details for more people they can... — read more
Thoughts? Any Teradata Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
No relevancy. Nor pharma nor shipping interested in what we have to say. ELT members should take full ownership of this. More to come
Any investment in marketing needs to be reviewed in terms of measurable metrics . Ultimately it has to show results . Results in terms of number of new logos acquired, amount of new / incremental revenue it brought, etc. Repeating the mantra... — read more
Does anyone have any historical data on the hierarchy depth? Or the ratio of individual contributors to managers? I'm fairly new to TD and don't have the historical perspective, but in the latest all hands and roadmaps I get bamboozled by the sheer... — read more
So now that NH is going to work for KT, do you think she will learn that he was the one that dropped the boss on her? Kt, ds, nh. A holy trinity of ineptitude
*What has amazed me over the last 6 years is the erosion of culture and knowledge that was Teradata. How many Cisco employees can they bring in, that have failed one after another. SY, TB, BD and others. They thought we were selling commodity... — read more
Hillary and team presented a pretty shallow RM. Appcenter, Unity, Essential (for cloud) and more are all gone. VCX is on life support... I didn’t see anything in our roadmap to get excited about—just a lot of scared PMs afraid of investing in... — read more
That's two of our best ELT members... glad SB is doing great with his inspirational leadership.
Time value : ELT conducts a 1:30 Hr meeting to repeat what everybody already knows! Transparency : No details about RIF or cost-saving measures were provided (# of people/projects let go, real estate locations identified for... — read more
The ideological replacement of reason and the quashing of the debate is spilling over from aspects which are annoying but relatively marginal, such as the diversity craze, into core strategic aspects, such as the direction of travel. There is a... — read more
“As a CMO, you cannot have fear, you have to be fearless. You can’t blink otherwise the team senses that, other functions will sense that, and you’re dead in the water,” the recently appointed chief marketing officer tells CMO. “You have to have... — read more
I have deals to close by end of year and no new products to help me and no meaningful roadmap! But we use our company all hands to hear about the CSO's boyfriend, how he hired his former employer (very nice), that our new CIO is LGBT, and HR... — read more
Next week, next month?
The LT thinks if they keep screaming it often enough and loud enough, maybe other people will believe it.
In its heyday, Teradata was always listed as one of the (if not the) top databases / data warehouse products in every relevant article. Now, there are barely any "mentions". Being listed as a (slipping) Gartner leader is not the same as relevance... — read more
Just take a look at the Z score for Teradata which is around 1 and has been for many years. The final result is they will fail, either being sold or complete liquidation. The only thing the Z score cannot predict is when. Bye bye
The Company built upon its momentum from the second quarter and delivered another quarter of solid progress on its Cloud-first initiatives, achieving operational efficiencies across the company and delivering strong financial results including... — read more
A product that gives more value to customer? How many prohects that were started in the last 5 years are sc-apped? 100%. Every single penny that our C*Os took in the name of strategy and innovation added zero value to the company in the last 5... — read more

DH announcement coming next week that he is retiring
I mean seriously. Did laying off all those workers have any impact on the financial stability of the company in the future? My guess is…NO. Has this actually worked for ANY company? I’d say it only worked for the upper management and above. I feel... — read more
