Company is replacing North American workers with cheap workers in India.

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Waterloo, ON

I worked at NCR full-time for less than a year

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

At NCR you are just a number, not a person

Customer Service Engineer (Current Employee)

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

ProsMobile job, provided with tools, decent benefits

ConsDehumanized - at NCR you are just a number, Pay is too low, Too many policies/procedures with too many but/if scenarios, No rewards for hard work, No appreciation by management, constantly reprimanded about impossible to make 'numbers', not provided time on shift to do tasks asked of you - instead they want you to 'run another call', forced unpaid commute time, lots of liability/responsibility, sometimes safety is an issue.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees need to be treated as human beings, not numbers. Far too often there is no reward for working hard, not once have I been given thanks by management, yet I hear from them all the time how we're not doing good enough, even though we're doing as much as humanly possible. Year over year I'm making less and less barely keeping up to inflation as the company is cutting back, but it seems all the cutbacks are at the bottom, straight from the people who do all your work, reward your employees or you'll find out the hard way that your precious contracts will end up going to other companies who put more effort to making their staff happy.

Company very U.S centric

Service (Former Employee)
Mississauga, ON

I worked at NCR full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat people, so committed, care about their clients -- despite few rewards. Very creative at getting the job done to serve clients.

ConsVery aggressive sales target, impossible to achieve, processes outdated, highly bureaucratic, get ready to figure out everything yourself. No money to fund anything yet the company is very profitable. Too lean. You have to spend some money to make money.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey think everything is rosy but no one else does - talk to employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
