    Ok place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsConvenient location, good company values, very diverse workforce, very friendly coworkers. Easy to telecommute and most people seem to work form home most days.

    ConsOffice can be very empty because a lot of people are working remotely. Emergency preparedness procedures are not clearly distributed to employees.

    It's an okay place to work.

    Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible environment, great people, good benefits

    ConsSometimes management has unrealistic expectations of their employees. They make decisions that greatly impact the lower level employees without talking to them or taking into consideration their experience. High stress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to your employees more and consider their opinions when making decisions that will effect not only their jobs but more importantly the customers.

    Great culture and management

    Solutions Sales Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsManagement treat their employees with respect and give a lot of freedom to work on your own, as long as you get the work done.

    ConsNot much room for growth unless you are at Head Office or a major office in the USA.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a better plan to promote employees faster.

    An "OK" Company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNCR is 130 years old, standing the test of time. Known for ATMs, self-service kiosks, point-of-sale terminals, check processing systems, and barcode scanners.

    ConsThe brand name is well known, but it is a veneer for the current state of affairs. The company culture leaves a lot to be desired, feeling like a throwback to another time in the rust belt. As could be expected at any former manufacturing shop, the company is highly political and the environment can quickly become toxic. A union mentality will get you far here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company culture needs to change, for the benefit of NCR and its employees.

    The wheels are coming off...

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) Duluth, GA

    ProsThere is opportunity if you make it for yourself, but sometimes it's a tough plow. With three major lines of business (banking, retail, and other) you can make an impact in various ways.

    This is a *very* political organization - if you find your way and hitch your wagon to "political animals", you'll do fine.

    ConsThis isn't a technology company - it's a 130-year old manufacturing relic who happens to sell technology products (an ATM is a computer, after all). The movement to software and services is a facade.

    Training is minimal in most parts of the company. Promotions are political - the vast majority of people are hired to a level, and stay there (often for their entire career). In 2013, NCR "re-titled" people, screwing many out of VP, director, and even manager titles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees. Read Glassdoor. Pay people what they're worth - and also pay for cell phones/home Internet like other technology companies.

    The biggest gap is Marketing - you need to get the word out about what NCR does. The general population STILL thinks "cash registers" and business people immediately zoom to "ATM's". Even the former Radiant can't get out of its "Aloha" heritage.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    great people to work with

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosinnovative and technically challenging work around new product development and integration. Secure cloud computing also presents a technical challenge to engage software developers

    Consunrealistic internal targets sometimes get in the way of doing the right thing

    Cutting to Make Growth Projections

    Vice President (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsStandard Benefits expected from any Fortune 500 company. Brand recognition gets you in the door due to solid fit for purpose solutions.

    ConsWork/Life balance is nonexistent. Expectation is to be available 24/7/365; leaders state they cannot take vacations openly due to the amount of work and mind-numbing processes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf truly a pay for performance culture then the CEO should not take an $11M Stock grant from the BoD when 50% of the lines of businesses did not get their annual bonuses. It all starts at the top.
