Pros

Intelligent and dedicate work force
Incredible core database product
Employee dedication despite management structire

Cons

Grind you to dust work mentality
Senior Management still thinks like NCR in the 80's
Confused Product management plan sponsors competitors over internal solutions
Compensation lags the industry severely even though management tries to suggest it is in line
Moral is sinking extremely fast in many areas
Product Quality is no longer a top priority, stock price rules the day every day

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ignore wall street and refocus on creating a top notch product across all applications. Create an integrated core offering that can deliver all aspects of a business and stop being the biggest opponent to your own applications. Either push them as the key to growth moving forward or spin them off and focus solely on Data Warehousing.

    Peers are friendly. Corp structure is flat. People work diligently, but ineffectively.

    Some processes exist just because they are predefined and existing.
    Compensation is low for talented employees
    Groups and product teams work in silos without sufficient communication across.
    Management is afraid of change and risk.
    Some people tend not to break out of their comfort zones and experiment with new ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a new branding image as a high-tech company and detach from the old NCR image
    Attract more younger talents
    Listen to the foot soldiers and provide executive coaching more
    Reeducate the middle management and line managers
    Be cautiously aggressive, more on aggresiveness though
    Become a leader of innovation in Data Warehousing/BI again
