Current Employee - Customer Engineer II in Toronto, ON (Canada)
Current Employee - Customer Engineer II in Toronto, ON (Canada)
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- no manager watching over your back. He just sends you a hundred emails or phone calls instead

Cons

- stressfull
- despite restructuring we did years ago, now they're using the downturn as an excuse to cut back on everything.
- the customer engineers end up getting lots of the blame despite the fact that we are working our asses off.
- How hard is it to fix logistics? Seriously. It shouldn't be this hard. They continue to waste money on all aspects of this, despite the advice of the techs.
- If a tech is a bad worker, but only part time or does not have an indepth skill set, it's easier to get rid of him. Meanwhile, a worker that is always "injured" and always trying to get out of work, can remain around and get his way for ages just because he has a more indepth skill set

Advice to Management

- Recognize good work more often

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    NCR offers the opportunity to develop and acquire work experience at a Fortune 500 firm. During the course of your career, you will be exposed to a people from a variety of cultural backgrounds, professional competencies and ethical frameworks.

    Cons

    NCR is a process driven bureaucracy that is often a dollar short and 5 minutes too late to realize a business opportunity. The culture has become myopic and toxic. The time horizons are limited to the quarter with little regard to long term consequences. Professional politicians rather than dedicated professionals have figured that if you "game" the system, you can rise within the ranks of management. Sadly, the management culture of NCR has led to a corporation in decline with bleak future prospects.

    Advice to Management

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    For this part of Scotland NCR is an excellent employer but there are not many good alternatives. You'd have to move away to get a similar job. Local management is focussed on customers and delivering business results but with a supportive attitude to a work/life balance. Pay is reasonable for the area. This part of NCR remains number #1 in the world.

    Cons

    Antiquated systems and tools. Continual cost cutting. Difficult for marketing professionals to get in front of customers. Inadequate tools for business analysis. Benefits are low compared to the market. Jobs are migrating to low cost areas.

    Advice to Management

    More tools, training and a higher focus on all marketing professionals in front of customers.
