    I worked at NCR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are in the corporate critical path it's good. Many changes to move product line to Point of Service.

    Cons

    More like contract work than a permanent employee. Hard to become and engaged contributor. Not fond of long term employees.

    Advice to Management

    You can't turn back so you better keep moving forward. Except in outsourcing. US talent and professional skills are superior.

    Pros

    Some of the few people and the HR party atmosphere

    Cons

    Politics. Was HR Director and difficult to manage business unit managers when all had their own personal, political agendas. The majority were nothing but mindless zombies--a big ego and a little mind.

    Pros

    If you are unemployed and need a paycheck and benefits, its a job.

    Cons

    Salaries are below par.
    They do Rank and Yank but they don't yank, its an excuse to not give 10% of the employees a raise and bonus every year. So be warned that every few years you'll be told you Need Improvement will be told what a lousy job you do and will get no raise even if it was a banner year for the company and everyone else gets a huge raise. It also ensures that your co-workers may stab you in the back to make sure that they don't get the NI every year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Yank And Rank. Treat your employees like valued members and not just washcloths to be replaced once they get worn out.

    I have been working at NCR as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NCR has a strong people culture and as an intern I was given a lot of support and also autonomy to work on my projects.

    Cons

    They say all roads lead to Dayton at NCR and as a single young graduate the work location wasn't desirable. Also, as an IT company they don't seem to have a strong portfolio to grow into broader markets.

    I worked at NCR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big corporation- can be used to learn how large corporations work, and for some name recognition on your resume. They hire from good schools, so you'll run into some talent, but they discourage collaboration, and they prefer controllable geeks with no social skills (anti-social in some cases).

    Cons

    Zero transparency. Silo culture. Paternalistic. Favoritism. Passive aggressive. They resent you if you call their bluff on their training promise. Small town culture. Paranoid and controlling. Sit down, shut up, look like you're working, mind-read your manager because he can't be bothered, dare not ask about strategy, tactics, future, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Your name recognition gives you the opportunity to hire talented people, but you squander that opportunity when you suppress and control that talent. You should feed the talent and let it grow.

    Global company, decent benefits, great mid managements and a variety of job opportunities. B2B business with long history and prestige.

    Stock price that does not move, And the company has gone from being the Jewel of Dayton to one of many in Atlanta.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you came from teh outside, it was not OK to destroy the cuslture built over a 100 years.

    Pros

    The people not just in the Dayton campus, but around the world, are dedicated, hard-working and extremely experienced....there is a loyalty and pride that comes from having managed through so many business environment and technology changes.

    Cons

    Previous references (on this site) to getting rid of the "trash" in Dayton shows a lack of understanding of the circumstances that the Dayton campus experienced over the past few years (since Mr. Nuti became CEO).The Dayton employee pool was alway in the crosshairs. Senior managers (with a few exceptions) were located anywhere in the world except Dayton. The closeness we should have felt as a tight senior and middle management team could never be forged under those circumstances. The fact that there was a high proportion of employees with 20 and 30-plus years (given the culling that took place in the past) meant that we had a really top team of high performers. These were thrown overboard purely as the cheapest way to get these high earners off the books....time will tell if Atlanta based teams can cut it! Employees effected by the RIF are being snapped up by other employers even in a shrinking job market. Proof of the pudding?

    Advice to Management

    The dispersed locations of company executives does not facilitate a spirit of teaming or a feeling that we have common goals...senior managers that were once accessible are now just a voice on a conference call or in a canned video. Leaders of different functional areas are tasked to succeed (and rewarded or punished accordingly)...however where is the spirit of "we are all one NCR"....unless you can engender that NCR will remain a mediocre company.
