    Pros

    Great people, good culture and a sincere interest on the individual and their social concerns. Quality of life was an important part of their culture.

    Cons

    Executive management lacked the ability to spot trends and act upon them in an effective manner. Compensation was low and the ability to grow in career was limited due to legacy NCR associates everywhere.

    Pros

    The company has a great culture for Sales and Pre Sales folks. The products are fantastic, and the ability to deliver them is extremely high.

    Cons

    The management was slow to change and refocus the company, but that has all changed in the past year. The company is readily changing. The internal IT systems were outdated, but as with all things, that is changing fast. The time to get a quote out was too long, but again, it is changing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to transform, and continue to move at the fast past. Unleash the product teams, as the technology is the best.

    Pros

    Company is quickly moving into a new direction. New CEO and new LT are actively driving the change in the company. Focus on Cloud and Open Source have steadily increased over the past quarters. Love attending the various Hackathon's and quarterly celebrations!
    Offices are being remodeled to new state of the art design and our team can't wait to move into our new space!

    Cons

    IT is still in yesterday land and always in the way of progress. It will take even more change to fix that.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the old-timers derail your efforts. So much great progress in a short amount of time!

    Pros

    The company is just large enough to be a major player in the market, but small enough to build relationship that the larger ones can't. It now has new executives, but even if they are all still from inside the company. Hopefully, they can right the ship.

    Cons

    Management was terrible for the past couple years. They were the same people who built the company to it's peak in 2011 & 2012, but they failed to make adjustments to the ever changing market. By not spending money on what made them successful, they attempted to throw money and new options (which they've now sold). Teradata may have offered the best product on the market, but they priced themselves out of competition and management didn't care.

    Advice to Management

    Stop undervaluing your workers. Treat with with respect. Investing in talent and retaining that talent should be a priority. Over the past couple years, little has been done to improve company moral and simply saying: "Hey, at least you are still with company as opposed to being part of the RIF" isn't sufficient and never should be.
