    I worked at NCR full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I retired from NCR after 33 years and they treated me very well

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is training. Some years I received a lot of training which I needed to be out of town for a week or two and some years I did not receive any training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employee fair and they will work very hard to please upper management.

    Pros

    There are offices all over the world, so if you want to move somewhere there is probably an office near.

    Cons

    The financials are the only thing that matters regardless of 'Work/Life' statements.

    Company future is stable.

    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.

    I worked at NCR full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large company, Great people (most of them)...

    Cons

    I think the cost cutting is causing serious issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication to the worker bees is critical. Innovation has fallen off and that's a bad thing if NCR wants to stay relevant.

    I have been with NCR for three years. I have found the work to be exciting and challenging.

    I have been working at NCR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Because the company is fast-paced, there is lots of opportunity if you are open to new things and want to learn. Additionally, the work is interesting as we impact customer transactions across multiple industries including banking, shopping and eating. I like the global nature of the company as you get to work with people across the world.

    Cons

    Like any company, especially larger ones, NCR struggles to simplify its processes and procedures. While NCR wants to be agile, it can sometimes be clunky making it difficult to get work done quickly. Agility is much simpler for smaller companies to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to continue to keep our eye on long term goals instead of short term goals driven by quarterly results

    I have been working at NCR as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    fun job for low pay, good mileage comp, crazy parts ordering and inventory system impossible to keep track of.

    Cons

    The pay is low/average for what you do, the company should really consider a full time parts inventory person in each area, the average tech does not have time to do this too.

    I have been working at NCR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great opportunities and benefits, plenty of options for employee growth through a variety of fields. The work is challenging and learning resources for thousands of subjects are readily available. Employees are often wanting to learn about anything and everything. Global market allows for transfer and travel.

    Cons

    Much of training is webinar based learning. Middle and upper management make business decisions based on hard finances that do not include processes for long term outlooks for customers or employees. Job security is poor in most sectors, save for sales. On call at all times. Procedures or training for transitioning software or departments is almost non-existent. High expectations with low man power and high employee utilization (all front line labor works overtime). Slow software development with major bugs and unstable market releases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using in-terms to try to boost employee morale. Employees see through baseless pep talks and monthly "messages" when the managers and CEO speak about empty purposes like "changing the game".
