    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making the same mistakes over and over. Learn from past changes, in plan and philosophy.
    Every few years major changes cause dysfunction and chaos throughout the organization.
    This stems from a lack of understanding of the actual business and the components involved by upper management.
    Key employees with decades of institutional knowledge are discarded routinely in order to replace them with inexperienced "cheaper" labor.
    This shift to inexperienced employees inevitably causes costly mistakes, additional expenditures, and an overall loss compared to retaining experienced valuable talent.

    May need patience to find the right next role within career path. (Not a personal issue, but true for some).
    Bonus could be stronger with a focus on company, team and individual contributions - (currently company goals must be met to fund).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to allow the stars to grow into new roles.
    Remember to coach and sponsor those impacting NCR in positive ways.
    Continue to understand what millenials and multi-generations are looking for in an employer.
    Be part of building the culture (it starts at the top) of an employer of choice!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.
