    Pros

    Pay was good, while it lasted.
    Benefits were good, while they lasted.

    Cons

    Company is trying to replace every North American technical worker with slave labor workers from India. The Indian workers are treated very poorly.

    Lots of turnover at the Waterloo location. Many employees have since left after being treated so poorly by upper management from Atlanta.

    Company is trying to turn software development into an assembly line operation. Employees have no privacy or quiet area in which to work. At the rate they're going, employees might be sitting on the floor in the future.

    Testers are treated as second class citizens at NCR, and most of them are Indian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I will never forgive management for off-shoring my position, and will do my best to avoid NCR products in the future.
