Departure Lounge

There must be several smart people planning to leave once they have finally been paid for last year’s efforts, especially when the company can’t calculate what is due for Q1. Whilst the return to customer focus and core business is a welcome change... read more

Partners and Channels

If Teradata is going to lay people off and abandon many of its small-to-medium sized customers, why can't it: 1) refer laid-off people to small boutique firms that WANT to serve the customers and would benefit from the expertise of departed staff and... read more

COBRA for January layoffs

FYI - after receiving several bills for COBRA even though I never registered, I emailed HR and was told because they screwed up last year's layoffs, everyone that was fired in Jan was automatically enrolled in COBRA and that if I don't want it, don't... read more

Wrong C-suite

Ever since Eric Tom was appointed the C-suite has collected people with simply the wrong set of values. They do not care about the customers and they do not care about the people. They're only about cutting cost and increasing prices: gee, if it's... read more

Upvote this post if you'd stick with Teradata no matter what... Downvote this post if you'd jet if the right opportunity presents itself.

TDC is not growing

Successful technology companies grow revenue. Today there is very little focus on winning new logos versus prior management team who drove stock to $80. In addition, there will be significant revenue leakage from accounts below top 500 who will be... read more


TD is doomed because the CEO vision was excellent 20 Years ago. Trasformation require intelligence people not only a famous consulting firm. The best TD R&D is gone ... only the traveler Steve repeat story that are good for students not for CIO.

Every place is teh same in regards to layoffs

Teradata is no different than any legacy software company. It isn’t someone’s fault - they live qtr to qtr without regard to the innovation surrounding them. New co’s have a distinct advantage! Old co’s trying to become New co’s are rarely... read more

SAP to cut more than 4K jobs in restructuring

Is this the first step for SAP and teradata to a unified transformation front to go in together in a huge M&A transaction that will disrupt the industry. Consulting needs to go first then it’s all business.

The Office is like a desert

The result of this lay-off if that office are now oversized. In Germany I believe that some locations will be closed and in Prague all will move in one floor . People will end in Feb but are already gone. How is the situation in other place?

Training our replacements

I look at the hirings of young employees as a part of a bigger plan to make the company look more attractive if it becomes the object of acquisition. I think they are going to demand from the older long-time employees to train the new ones and once... read more

Everybody is disposable

Nobody is safe here anymore. Literally nobody (well, except for those on top, of course.) No matter your experience, no matter your knowledge - you can be replaced (or at least Teradata thinks so.) Anybody who has been here for a few years knows by... read more

Creating a competition with new hirings

The hirings at TD are made to create an atmosphere on competition between the newcomers and the long-time employes and my take on the situation is that after a while layoffs will be coming and the “older workers” are much closer to being cut... read more

Even if TD gets acquired, they will still need HQ buildings

Even if TD gets acquired, they will still need HQ buildings. Any acquiring company wouldn't shut down, or even move the necessary development/support functions. Services business would have to be sold first, or at the same time. Tech companies are... read more

Who else is worried about earnings report?

If the results are bad - and let's be realistic, chances are they will be - then I wouldn't be surprised if major layoffs are immediately announced as a damage control measure. And I mean major, nothing small or even medium would be able to properly... read more

Are we getting acquired?

Seems pretty clear they are cutting payroll expenses to make the company more attractive for an acquisition. Highest paid, most successful folks go first - biggest impact on payroll. Then sell the services business to Cognizant. Then sell the... read more

THE CEO teaching DATA Model

I remember when OR was teaching LDM. I was never bet that Good modeler cold be a good CEO. TD is very innovative company, selecting a CEO with Tech skill and investing in SQL as innovative language to run AI. Vantage or Vintage ????

Driving top performers out

I imagine that Teradata is the only company in the world that doesn’t take pride, much less reward the employees that perform the best work, but rather considers the top performers a liability. I don’t know if the management is threatened by their... read more

Severance handled shockingly

Does anyone notice that the new TD logo looks a lot like Deloitte logo. What a scam, new branding my a-- it’s just using existing brands that have similar feel. No wonder what they fired half the marketing team. Probably outsourced that brand... read more

Callous & disingenuous is the “new Teradata”

Funny how we all received holiday emails from Vic, Oliver, and Eric on how great we all did in 2018 & keep up the good work for 2019...little did we know that disengenuine RB LT team knew exactly what they were going to do to all 800+ of us back in... read more

Age Discrimination??

Does anyone have any good insight into whether this action might be grounds for a class action lawsuit? It sure seems most of the layoffs were of 55+ individuals. IBM is going though a lawsuit now. Does any have any details?

More layoff coming in Q1

My manager told me that more layoff coming in Q1 2019. We don't have projects since nobody cares with our f*g expensive technology. It's time to learn for old Teradata geeks who thought Teradata is god father. A--. Word has transformed enough to... read more
