I worked at NCR full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Pay was good, while it lasted.
Benefits were good, while they lasted.

Cons

Company is trying to replace every North American technical worker with slave labor workers from India. The Indian workers are treated very poorly.

Lots of turnover at the Waterloo location. Many employees have since left after being treated so poorly by upper management from Atlanta.

Company is trying to turn software development into an assembly line operation. Employees have no privacy or quiet area in which to work. At the rate they're going, employees might be sitting on the floor in the future.

Testers are treated as second class citizens at NCR, and most of them are Indian.

Advice to Management

I will never forgive management for off-shoring my position, and will do my best to avoid NCR products in the future.

    I worked at NCR full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    fun company to work for. It has annual company outings, parties (Christmas, summer). We also used to have an annual sports fest which brought employees together and developed a lot of teamwork between departments.

    Cons

    Lower salary compared to other big corporations or design facilities in the are ( like Lexmark). People had to jump ship to get a bigger pay. Starting salary was really low, although increases were ok.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Think of salary revisions properly, otherwise you can't expect to retain the talents.
