    Pros

    Nice people to work with. It's a good place for recent college graduates to find a starting job and learn to work in a corporate environment.

    Cons

    Low morale, very little chance of advancement. The bonus plan is a joke, designed to miss the mark so they don't have to pay it. For a single employee, the cost for medical insurance is $3090 a year, but starting in 2016 if you don't meet your Biometric screening numbers they will take an ADDITIONAL $1,950 out of your paycheck. The intent of course is to so rid themselves of older workers, overweight people, etc. My advice is to view this company as a place to hang your hat for a short period of time, but keep looking for something better because it surely is out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people, and they will take care of you.

    Pros

    Depending on your manager, flexibility in schedule. Lots of time off.

    Cons

    Managers have the power to keep you from moving to other positions. It's amazing how anything gets done because of bad coordination between departments. The culture varies from department to department and LOB to LOB. It's like several companies in one. Be prepared to work long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the people doing the daily on the ground work. Decisions are made that don't take the daily workload and problems into account.

    Pros

    The money was ok; but should have been better because of the crap you have to deal with.

    Cons

    Management sucks and does not value your opinion, does not believe in workforce balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the old managers with the old technology mentality and bring in new ones with new ideas.

    Pros

    This company is making a commitment to transforming itself to a software company with is an exciting new adventure. NCR has an appropriate focus on delivery within my organization.

    Cons

    Sometimes we try to juggle too many things. I hear 80% is good enough a lot. Would rather see us be 100% good on three top priorities, 60% good on the next 3 priorities, than 80% good on all 6.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritize, plan, execute. Be great at fewer things that drive the greatest business benefit.

    Pros

    International business
    Cultural exposure
    Large multinational experience

    Cons

    Boring, dry, formal culture
    Poor management
    Long hours
    Disorganized and highly segmented
    The workforce here is older, and the buildings are in poor locations far away from the city. There's no great living around the area, so commutes to/from work are terrible for pretty much everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives don't even operate out of HQ and have terrible interaction with employees

    Pros

    Above average benefits.

    The only Cons I can think of is that the work resource is not sufficient. Other than that, I can't think of anything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to buy any more big companies.

    Pros

    Honestly, I can't think of one good thing to say about working for this company. I look forward to the weekends on every Friday.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible
    Culture and Atmosphere are terrible
    No Work Life Balance - Working from home is actually discouraged, and frowned upon
    No support from Upper Management
    In meetings you have IT upper management yelling, cursing, and challenging every decision by lower management.
    IT is always in crisis mode, and unable to maintain or properly manage budget or yearly project planning - which means employees are often over worked..forced to work on competing tasks that all require 1st priority status, not enough FTE to handle work load, and management attempts to bully and/or blame you for missed deadlines, that were unrealistic from the start.
    No sense of "team" in IT across different functional areas, as everyone is concerned with meeting their own personal yearly objectives, instead of working together to meet common goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management should be replaced with new people with fresh ideas.
