    I worked at NCR full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Ease of moving into other areas of company to learn new functions and skills
    - Good benefits although they have been scaled down over the past couple of years
    - Slightly lower than industry compensation but still acceptable
    - Job security
    - Majority of associates are hard working and very knowledgeable

    Cons

    - Standards are to work between 50 and 60 hours a week
    - Bonus packages rarely are paid out
    - Conflicting organizational objectives do not drive cross-functional teaming
    - Lack of focus on key initiatives through to full execution; Shiny object syndrome
    - Everything is over-planned and over-discussed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your people - they are your biggest asset! Ensure that management truly has time to "manage" employees and are not overly burdened with ancillary tasks themselves. Focus on a few specific strategic themes for improvement initiatives and rally the troops around them.

    I have been working at NCR as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly and professional. Their headquarters has people of all ages and backgrounds working there.

    Cons

    They outsource software development a lot. It can cause a lot of issues on projects depending on who was hired to develop it. Not a fan of how they handle software testing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring stuff onshore. Stop using SharePoint. Make your developers do automated unit and behavior testing. Developers should be in charge of testing, not your IT and Business Analysts.

    Former Employee - IT Manager in Duluth, GA

    I worked at NCR

    Pros

    Lots of long-term employees who are very dedicated despite being worked to death
    Really innovative solutions
    Market leader in many self service technology solution areas (ATM's, self serve kiosks, etc)

    Cons

    Executive management will run the employees into the ground if allowed (generally speaking).
    Retail acquisition (Retalix) is a dog and dragging down the retail LOB - costing jobs and lowering stock price
    Executive management has been leaving in droves (late 2013 and all of 2014)
    Typical public company - functions 1/4 to 1/4 at the expense of the long-term strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the employees. Happy employees, happy customers...
    CEO and all top lieutenants should consider moving to world headquarters
    Look at whether HR senior leadership is supportive of the type of culture that is really desired

    I worked at NCR full-time

    Pros

    The technologies they are selling, and the changes they have made in their offerings, make NCR one of the top technology companies to work for. Their offerings make them very mobile friendly, and amazingly, their technology works very well.

    Cons

    It is so fast paced that management expectations of your performance can be unrealistic.
