    I worked at Diebold Nixdorf full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good environment. Diebold .Inc is top 3 ATM solutions provider in the field. Software engineers in R & D department are very nice and friendly. They will give hands to new hires.

    Cons

    Not enough challenge for the engineers which have been worked in this company. 45% job task are related to maintain old system and modules.

    Pros

    Challenging work. Great place to start a career. Good technology. Great people.

    Cons

    Very poor, inexperienced management. Far too much focus on near term Financials. No long term strategy. Leadership very weak in long term strategic planning/vision.

    Advice to Management

    Focus one the very talented people you have, and make them happy. Develop and follow a long term strategy. Stop the foolish focus on the next quarter results. Develop, train, hire real managers, not just the pupets that can't think for themselves.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance Decent benefits Great co-workers

    Cons

    Management cannot make decisions Employees have no responsibility or empowerment Decisions are announced but then management waffles When lay-offs come, they often get rid of their best workers because those are the ones making the most money People are constantly thrown into roles they haven't been trained for and expected to succeed even though the company will not train them or even have someone mentor them No raises for many years, no bonuses, no cost-of-living adjustments. Costs go up but salaries don't go up with them.

    Advice to Management

    We need better leadership Employees need to be empowered People who make decisions need to be better informed Stop losing good talent by laying off your best workers and not giving raises for so many years

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

    Pros

    - Diebold (now Diebold Nixdorf) is a large, fairly recognizable brand name in the U.S. I started here as an Intern, and the big company environment provided lots of resources for me to learn - Merger with Wincor Nixdorf should provide the opportunity to get into more diverse areas besides only ATMs (it is sorely needed) - Good pay for the work you do - Easy to stand out as exceptional - Work-life balance allows for enjoyment of hobbies as well as career skill-building due to low stress level - Speaking to lower levels of management, there is a huge desire to change things for the better, with some taking it upon themselves to do so. - Software development is becoming more agile. With migration to new TFS tool, endless approvals, triages, and outdated processes have been de-emphasized. Engineers are now in control of many of these processes. Some feel it is a little TOO lax, but it is paving the way for innovation. One issue with this is that many employees still expect someone to hold their hand and are having trouble adapting to the new process. - Trying to make it more desirable to go to work (newly upgraded facilities, starbucks, etc.) - Some truly innovative projects coming out of the company. Unfortunately, it is an industry resistant to change and that has trickled into the company as well. These innovative projects are not pushed as hard as they should be.

    Cons

    - Too much emphasis on legacy support with new software development projects. I understand supporting old products, but continuing to add new features after 10+ years is asking for trouble (budget overruns, limited innovation, and servicability) - Very little going on in terms of project/product management and forward-looking project planning. It would be nice to see plans for new projects before you hear about them in a press release. - Have been many layoffs since I've been there. Some of those affected should have been fired/re-assigned long ago, but others it was sad to see them go. - Raises are hit or miss. Some years they don't have them, and when they do, they are small - Overall pessimistic attitude by many due to lack of upward mobility, possibility of layoffs, and merger-related discomfort. - Training and onboarding procedures were abysmal when I started.

    Advice to Management

    - Push innovative projects up the chain. There are engineers and architects capable of producing them, but they rarely see the light of day - Focus more on future innovation and less on legacy support. This will build the revenue stream by enticing customers to upgrade. - Compensate your best employees by putting promotions more in reach, and ensure increases keep up with cost of living at minimum. Merit increases should be in addition to the cost of living adjustment. - Either slim down the upper management, or place more emphasis on software, since corporate communications tells us software is an important part of our business (note this has gotten better since the merger)
