    As a contractor, I served as a project coordinator for several project managers at NCR, Corp.

    Former Employee - Project Coordinator  in  Norcross, GA
    Former Employee - Project Coordinator in Norcross, GA

    Pros

    The best things about working with NCR, Corp was the fact that it was a virtual (work from home) position and the fact that they (NCR) offer a number of professional and educational opportunities online through NCR University.

    Cons

    Projects and/or project budgets can shrink or contract without warning which can cause staffing and other resources to be reduced again with little to no warning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a very energetic and positive work environment but do continue to build and strengthen your team cohesion which should result in people who will openly communicate and trust each other.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours offer for great work-life balance. Pay varies based on job role, but is overall very competitive.

    Cons

    Upper management and people who come up with nonsense to justify their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the best interests of the life and blood of the company - the customer engineers. As the face of NCR, customer engineers play a crucial role in the success of the organization. Upper management needs to take into consideration the impact a change in process, pay, or policy will have on customer engineers. It is all take, there is very little give.

    Pros

    We have some of the greatest solutions and some of the most highly regarded customers in the financial services, retail and restaurant industries. The people are really great to work with and they are working hard to change the culture. The company is a very sales and customer focused company. There are so many opportunities to learn and grow - function and geography. And, the company is growing.

    Cons

    The company is transforming, so it can be challenging sometimes to prioritize everything that needs to get done - it can be overwhelming.
