I worked at Wincor Nixdorf

Pros

Wincor has a team orientated culture that is a great place to contribute all that you have, including your creative intelligence. From a sales perspective this has been an environment where there are outstanding sales people who I have learned so much from that will help in the world of complex, enterprise sales. In addition, the technology (software and hardware) is some of the best in the industry.

Cons

Every company has challenges and Wincor is no exception. The compensation plan is probably the lowest you will find in the industry.

    I have been working at Wincor Nixdorf full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is average and since there is no oversight you can get paid for sitting at home on your duff. So if you are a lazy cuss, this would be the place for you.

    Cons

    I was constantly asked to lie to the customer(s) about what the products(s) do. The installation process is an absolute nightmare and if you have any problems, don't expect any support during US hours. You work an 8-10 hour day (if you're one of the people who work) and then have to stay up half the night on the phone with Germany, just to be insulted, or with China, IF you get permission to talk to them, for some actual help -- but the problem isn't fixed for months because they are so back logged in China. Project Managers and Sales are constantly making promises that cannot be met. New installations are scheduled to take weeks, and are touted as start to finish with a completely functional environment; however, the latest install I have been involved in is still on-going 6 months out. More and more people are working on this installation and the customer is hot as hell! If you value your reputation -- RUN!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making promises to the customer that cannot possibly be fulfilled. It's insulting and counter productive. Perhaps this is the way things are done in Germany and Europe, but US customers don't like it.
