    Current Employee - Customer Engineer II

    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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in North Sydney
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in North Sydney

    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.

    Pros

    Company car and paid gas,phone,laptop for work, reimbursement on almost anything plus company credit card for emergency expenses

    Cons

    Bad start pay for the amount of work and accounts to handle, always short staffed with people who don't want to work a mile out of their territory. Horrible absolute worst management and new accounts and rules on a monthly basis very little training given also

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Takes along time to move up in this company and you can only move to field manager which is a crap 24/7 job of emails and phone calls

    Pros

    Strong product offering - self-service technology leadership and innovation across multiple vertical markets

    Cons

    Supporting top tier clients is a 24/7 job. Serious field support issues at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break down industry solution offering silos. For example: the consumer experience in banking and retail payments is merging into on new paradigm for consumers, financial institutions and retailers.
