    Worst company

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Duluth, GA

    I have been working at NCR full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I don't have anything good to say about this company, everything I have experienced makes this the worst company to work for in my eyes.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership, only care about people that graduated from ga tech, most people in positions they shouldn't be - management focuses on intimidation, or just plain ignore subordinates. Time lines are ignored, no one cares about their job. Most poorly ran, unorganized company I have every experienced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not at people that are good at their job should be managers. Promote people that can lead the company, and then resign so the new leaders can change it.

    Pros

    The company has a decent benefits package and when they aren't scrambling to fluff up their numbers the hours are good.

    Cons

    We always worked 10-12 hr shifts when they were pushing for more numbers. As a salary person you weren't or are not paid for all the extra time. The hourly workers made plenty of over time though. As a salary worker your paid for your forty hours then have to work anywhere from from an extra ten to an extra thirty with ZERO compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to learn to compensate the overworked salary employees

    Yet Another Year with No Bonus; Cost Control Mentality makes working at NCR miserable

    Pros

    Interesting company; highly capable middle management

    Cons

    NCR offers bonuses (targeted as a % of base pay) based on company performance. However, bonuses are rarely paid due to the company's poor performance. Even in profitable years, senior management finds excuses to cut bonuses in order to save money. Everything at NCR is about cost control and cost cutting. Understaffing is more severe than at any company I've ever worked for. Duluth headquarters are overcrowded with practically no amenities. Everything possible (IT support, bookkeeping) is outsourced overseas, making employees' daily lives very difficult. Training is next to non-existent, save for a few online training programs. HR follows a "low touch" model, i.e. no live HR for employees to consult with -- if you have HR questions or problems, you're expected to solve it yourself by navigating the internal HR "self help" website. In general, if NCR can cut something out of the budget, they will -- regardless of the impact on employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be perceived a a genuine, cutting-edge tech company, you can't skip bonuses and you can't base your entire business model on driving every penny of excess cost out of the company. Employees will just go elsewhere.

    I worked at NCR

    Pros

    0,none,zilch. Not even the company car. Last year NCR tried and failed (thankfully) to charge all technicians for using the company car we were forced to.

    Cons

    Every nightmare you can imagine in the corporate world exists here. Constant policy and management changes will have you doing mental donuts. Absolutely no work/life balance or reasonable pay. Constant harassment from your Territory Manager of the quarter. Seriously, no joke, 15 Territory Managers in under 5 years. No concern for employees, customers whatsoever. All about the Sales and profit for upper Management and shareholders. This in the end, will catch up to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I offered adviadvice, it fell on deaf,self centered, inconsiderate ears. Not even going to bother.

    Pros

    You will have a job, but everybody is very unhappy and promotions are given in a buddy buddy system.

    Cons

    Awful work environment, not only that but it is ranked among the top WORSE companies to work for in the United States. Google it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How can you have managers ask the employees to do things when they don't even know how to do it themselves? Horrible leaders and very hostile work environment

    I worked at NCR full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I can't think of one reason to work here unless it's because you couldn't find anything else. NCR does offer unlimited sick time but you'll need it after the insanity here.

    Cons

    401K matching isn't paid until Dec 31. Benefits are poor given the size of the company. No job promotions, minimal pay raises. Leadership is out of touch with employees and reality so the decision making process results in poor decisions with even worse results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop giving yourself bonus's and raises if you aren't giving them to your employees. Listen to what your employees are trying to tell you - you're going to need their advice if you want to get out of the hole you're in. The world's changing and NCR needs to change also.

    I have been working at NCR full-time

    Pros

    It provided me with a job for a few years. Sorry...can't give anything better than that.

    Cons

    Totally bottom line driven with no regard for its employees. Cuts resources and piles more and more onto its team members. Extremely stressful environment with upper level managers who are rude, inappropriate in manner of speech and have unreasonable expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that people make up a company and generate your revenue. Your titles do not give you the right to treat people aggressively and unfairly. The good old boy system is firmly in place. Change that.

    Worked at NCR for 5 years. Worst Managers Ever

    I worked at NCR full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Close to where I lived. Pay was ok. Meet valuable friends.

    Cons

    Management sucks. No growth within the company. All managers have been with company for twenty plus years, they all migrated to Georgia from Dalton. All un-educated; but anyone hired from Georgia had to have a degree. Uses old technology and does not want to change. Ever heard the old saying you can't teach a old dogs new tricks. This is what the management team is at NCR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some education and work with new technology. Don't be jealous because you hired educated people in Georgia that can get other jobs. You only know NCR, not educated therefore you can't go out and get another job.
