    Pros

    Some of the few people and the HR party atmosphere

    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.

    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

    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.

    flexible hours if you can get your work done.

  9. "No identity."

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Dayton, OH
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Dayton, OH

    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.
