    Hard working people.

    Cons

    Pay structure below market.
    Extensive hours with little reward.
    Greedy executives who think only of profits at the expense of product quality and employee life.
    Retalix primary focus is about profit, with little concerns for employee life.
    Undefined and poorly documented software.
    Buggy software and no emphasis on fixing the root causes. Just do the quick fix.
    Employees are treated as if they don't have a choice but to work there.
    ============
    Expect to work 50+ hrs work week.
    Expect big brother looking over your shoulder.
    Expect slave work for peanut salary.

    Expect to be own by Retalix. Everything else is secondary, family included.

    Get a life and give your employee a life. Be a company that put people above profit.

    Pros

    They have a very diverse work group and some really smart people. It's a great place to learn more, as long as you understand it's just a stop on a longer trip.

    Cons

    This company has historically never given salary increases, and is known for paying substantially under market for all positions. They promote a culture of trying to make you feel like you should be happy to have a job. Because of this, good employees always leave, and they are left with people who are not top achievers, and are in fact, "happy to have their jobs."

    Advice to Management

    Retalix is under new management from ex Amdocs management. My hope would be that they can develop a place and culture where they would want their own family to work. Unfortunately, this was not the reputation of Amdocs, so highly unlikely.

    Pros

    Good People

    Cons

    Very little planning
    Buggy software and no emphasis on fixing the root causes. Just do the quick fix.
    Employees are treated as if they don't have a choice but to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on the bad morale issue and focus on treating the employees like you value them in the future. Promoting people who are good at doing their job doesn't mean they are leaders.

    Pros

    Good place to learn how very mediocre people rise and shine using their political abilities.
    many challenges for people in managerial positions.

    Cons

    wow i have too many...
    1. mediocre as i said before
    2. no mentors, people to look up to. if you have no previous experience in other company/ies, most chances that you will learn very bad skills and bad practices.
    3. outdated technologies
    4. HR is practically absent. no care of the employees what so ever. if you are not well connected, no one will give a damn.

    5. C H A O S!!! absolute chaos!

    Advice to Management

    start with going to management school and go up from there...
    intimidation does not work!
    if we were seeking an IDF experience, we would have stayed there!!

  8. Was so good, till NCR ruined the place. I am giving 4 stars for the place it was and 2 for the place it became.

    Challenging at times
    Nice local team

    Cons

    Poor work life balance
    Most Offsite Managers with no vision and no employee focus

    Advice to Management

    Remote resources are your customer facing resources - if you don't invest in them they will leave you

    Pros

    A lot of fine, dedicated people trying to do their best in an extremely unprofessional and unpleasant environment

    Cons

    Retalix was an extremely unprofessional organization with a Byzantine management culture. Amazingly, NCR made it even worse. The person NCR brought in to lead the transition was clearly out of his depth. The result was a fiasco for both NCR and the employees of Retalix

    Advice to Management

    Join the 21st century. Avoid obsessive organizational changes. Get the right people on the bus.
