How low can the stock go

Tdc stock is around $24 now. With the poor quarterly and annual results coming up, how low do you think tdc will sink to this year ? My guess is $17.

Why the suffering?

Please tell me that CT is not host again this year at GSX? I left the company last year thinking that once OR left that CT would be out the door quicker than a fat kid chasing an ice cream truck. Surely TD has wised up to the fact they are not... —  read more 

The experiment has left

RP exit stage door left. RP should have been treated as a data science project so we could have "failed fast". Unfortunately she stayed on too long and never delivered anything.

No cash bonus this year

Rumors are afloat that there is not going to be any cash bonus and minimal raises. They will give paltry stocks which will be meaningless as the stock loses value and vests over time. Jump ship now!!!

So, what's it going to be?

2019 is over. Will Teradata show improvement in Q4 2019 or will they bury that and look to 2020? CAN they actually improve with clueless management? When will the next set of layoffs start? I predict March 2020. I bet 2020 will see competitors... —  read more

Schadenfreude

I feel a bit guilty, but Teradata management has brought all this on themselves. My advice to the actual workers (managers and below) is to get out soon.

Commoditization

What was once a unique and highly respected business has become a commodity. A great product that still retains market leading benchmarks from all the analysts - commoditized by incompetent management messaging. Highly intelligent and capable... —  read more

RIF'd employees eligibility for re-hire

Not sure anyone would want to be re-hired, but I've heard that RIF'd employees are not eligible for re-hire due to some lawsuit or legal action. Does anyone have any information about that?

How bad is it ?

How many more posts are there on this thread than any other company ? Does Teradata win yet another benchmark ? How many times have management tried to intervene and had their posts deleted ? M.e. keeps on knocking but he never gets in...probably... —  read more 

Not an anti-TD/OR post

This post will either generate some hate or a debate. I have been with TD for a while. Not dinosaur while but a while. The last few years I have had decent productivity: brought in 2x-3x of my cost to the company ( measured by billable hours and... —  read more

Can we expect more layoffs before year's end?

It wouldn't surprise me if the answer was yes, to be honest. Our leadership has long shown they lack any kind of a moral compass. Laying off a bunch of people just ahead of Christmas wouldn't even be a blip on the radar for them. Hopefully I'm wrong... —  read more
