    I have been working at NCR full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job is pretty simple to lock down, offering such a low salary they clearly don't have high standards. You will be furnished with a vehicle and remote engineers will rarely have face time with their manager giving you the illusion of autonomy.

    Cons

    Poor Salary, Hard to get time off, work-life lines get very blurred as you are expected to be available on the phone on and off shift.
    Poor parts quality and availability makes you look incompetent to customers, at first you may be able to laugh it off but when it becomes something you plan for (ordering multiple quantities planning for failure) it's a bit upsetting.
    NO CAREER progression, at all, don't even consider asking about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people on the ground, the people who interact daily with more customers than you know you have, the people who wear the NCR brand on the breast for 40+ hours a week all across the country/world. Make them happy and the image of the company will grow a lot. Phones disabled after hours, career development, performance based salaries are all ways you could improve the organisation for the employee

    I worked at NCR

    Pros

    The fellow associates are the only reason why anyone would work there. Also you need to be the right cultural fit for this company - you must not only talk the talk but walk the walk. Free loading gets spotted quickly which is a good thing.

    Cons

    Company Politics rife, too much hierarchy in senior management, cost takeout instead of growing the business, only interested in making shareholder numbers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vision is the number one priority of any company and unfortunately NCR failed to succeed - its a shame it was a great company some time ago.

    I have been working at NCR full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with. It's a good place for recent college graduates to find a starting job and learn to work in a corporate environment.

    Cons

    Low morale, very little chance of advancement. The bonus plan is a joke, designed to miss the mark so they don't have to pay it. For a single employee, the cost for medical insurance is $3090 a year, but starting in 2016 if you don't meet your Biometric screening numbers they will take an ADDITIONAL $1,950 out of your paycheck. The intent of course is to so rid themselves of older workers, overweight people, etc. My advice is to view this company as a place to hang your hat for a short period of time, but keep looking for something better because it surely is out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people, and they will take care of you.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Alpharetta, GA (US)

    I have been working at NCR full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very smart people, generous time-off. Needless to say a company this size has more than enough resources to carry out projects. Office space is comfortable, great location. I would recommend the company to people who are used to the "big company" feel, however, not for you if you value a more start-up feel.

    Cons

    Very bottom-line driven. Leadership has a chance to be more product oriented. Projects underway are not generally best for product but best for bottom line. Not enough training for new employees. It feels the company is having a hard time in transitioning from a services company to a product company. This change needs to come from the top down and C-level management feels very old school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While financial performance is important, being product-oriented is more important.
    The environment is very normal for a company this size (which is ok if that's your ticket) but technology jobs must have a more start-up feel to get the best out of employees.

    Pros

    Some good people
    Nice Offices in Israel
    on-site Dining room

    Cons

    Retalix Delivery managers are worse than car salesman - If they know how to Shout they get the job
    No work life balance
    You are expected to work till you drop and when they fire you they don't give anything above what the law requires
    So much Politics and so little productivity (Loyalty and working long hours is considered a higher value than being professional and productive)
    Salaries way below market !

    Before I joined Retalix I was warned by a former employee about how they treat their employees , He was totally accurate - I'm sorry I didn't listen to him

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and start thinking Global
    Fire all former Retalix delivery managers - they do not know how to manage a customer and are the reason so many projects fail
