    Pros

    Good group of folks to work with in my group

    Cons

    It's a big company and it feels like it. There is an underlying message from those at the top of "Just do your job and let us worry about running the company" There are rumors of a hostile takeover so that makes things feel uncertain

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about where you are leading this company. Instead of "not commenting" on rumors, how about at least letting your employees know what is going on?

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, friendly and nice field staff

    Cons

    bureaucratic, lack of innovation with products. Extremely political

    Advice to Management

    More supportive approach rather than fear-based. The culture there is one of saying things to try and prove they should be kept employed, rather than trying to get things done and innovate for the organisation

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Work colleagues are generally very helpful and friendly. Projects provide fun challenges and learning opportunities. Get to work for a company that powers a large percentage of the financial transactions that make our economy tick.

    Cons

    CEO has been ranked in the past as one of the worst to work for. With offshore development, you will often have meetings that start at 7am or earlier in order to get more overlap time with the development team. Communication between upper management and teams is lacking; can lead to being asked to do more than what is physically possible. Headquarters is technically in GA, but C-Suite executives are located in New York City. Some seem proud that the term "you're fired" is attributed to the founder of NCR, who "fired" the eventual founder of IBM by having his desk thrown outside and set on fire. Rumors are flying that the company has been put up for sale, possibly because of bad acquisitions/accounting practices, which has been reported in the media with no comment from management.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate what is expected better. Plan projects better and prepare for them better.

    Pros

    Growth, Big Company, Great Benefits, Great Exposure, Global Opportunities.

    Cons

    Management not open to implementing feedback provided from customers for change and better direction from a customers' perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Take more feedback seriously from your team, this is the only way the company will continue to be profitable.

    Pros

    NCR is a large company with many good benefits and has a number of good employees. If you like slow pace and a large company environment, it is a good place to retire.

    Cons

    Don't ever make to much salary or you'll start to be pushed out the door. After 14 years of working long hours for one of the most profitable teams in the company, upper management decided to cut cost. The company if hand cuffed by it's manufacturing lead times and all customers must play by NCR rules and lead times. It should be the other way around, but the company is to large to adjust.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management doesn't recognize the inefficiencies of there slow internal processes. I'm betting no changes will be made until major accounts start migrating to their competition.
