Great technology company but beware of local challenges.

Pros

Great data warehousing technology. Lots of new products to cover broad range of the market. Customers are very loyal. Many staff have been with company for a long time. Great diversity of people. By and large nice co-workers to work with. Lots of flexibility. Lots of opportunities to learn. Great R & D facilities. You will get an opportunity to work with some very bright people in the industry and the best thing is thing is that they are eager to share their knowledge. Some of the industry consultants are top class.

Cons

Focus on selling hardware rather than providing solutions. Professional Services and Sales can be more on the same page. Be prepared for lots of travel. Over reliance of a relatively small number of customers for growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think more of people during the downturn and come up with innovative ways to manage costs. It is a great company and hope it weathers the current economic downturn.

    Sadly inadequate senior leadership

    Pros

    Virtual office provides flexibility. Few layers of between employees and leadership..which is a double-edged sword. Compensation is pretty good, although not necessarily aligned with value or productivity.

    Cons

    The culture and leadership of the company remains "old NCR" and focused on short-term profitability...while the company needs strategic direction and growth. Poor internal management development. Poor understanding / support for new salespeople to close deals in a "green field." The company hires people with industry experience...and then doesn't listen to them. Many leave frustrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave and bring in people with some vision. Don't lose the execution-focused culture, but balance it with some people with vision. Wake up to new competitors.

    Pros

    get exposure and hands on experience on one of the best Data warehousing methodologies and tools. One can join GCC to get a good start in his career but then after that I see people love to swap to other options because of salary and benifits.

    Cons

    benifits and salary may not be as good as your other class fellows doing similar job. employee retention is something GCC is not really worried about and this will have an effect in coming months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change Management is good but it depends if you are making a CHANGE which is absolutely rediculous. the recent change took place at gcc is something bizzare. Can you even imagine that this could possibly be successful ?

    No opinion of CEO
