A great place to work and learn for a few years, but maybe not the best place to grow in the long run.

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

Pros

- Truely friendly atmosphere: they have never heard of the concept of corporate rat race.
- Large company (20,000 employees worldwide) with good networking opportunities.
- US style management at its best: there are no stupid questions, only incomplete answers.
- Workload varies throughout the year, but overall remains quite manageable.

Cons

- Business Infratructure (HR, Payroll, T&E, C&B, etc) has been cutting costs for years. Much has been outsourced to India with significant loss in service quality. Also there is next to zero investment in HRIT and the software is quite outdated.
- There is a clear vision of where the company is going in terms of markets and clients, but a lack of any serious vision for Business Infrastructure development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop the blind "cost cutting at all costs" and outsourcing to cheap, lower end providers. To keep your clients happy, you need to keep your employees happy. To keep your employees happy, you need high end in-house employee services, especially as you have ambitious plans for the future.

    Pros

    Seems to remain as a big player in the Self Service world. The benefit of working at NCR Canada is that you have seen the worst and no other place can be as bad. Sadly, that is the value.

    Cons

    Regarding NCR Canada (Mississauga) - a terrible mess of politics, gossip and unprofessionalism. School-yard, bullying tactics run rampant. Too many people have been there too long and ran out of fresh ideas years ago. If you are not willing to just join the line and follow along, don't bother with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need fresh ideas which means you need a significant number of new people. When you get them in, make efforts to support them. You seem to have all the right parts under one roof but it is a complete mess.
