Advice to Management

Bring back work from home days and more flexibility or else you'll lose a lot of good developers to many other companies that offer those things. Give better raises/promotions for internal employees that stay and work hard or else they'll start losing motivation and/or leave. Treat developers like people, stop expecting them to work nights and weekends for free for you, if you need more work done quicker, increase the local dev team size by hiring more good devs. Improve the work/life balance of employees if you want better work out of them and keep up with giving long term enployees competitive pay.

Does NCR assist with or provide work transportation?

Pros

Company Car, Big Company, Stable Income.

Cons

This industry is dying. Transactions that used to involve cash, checks, or credit cards are now being paid for using smartphone apps with digital wallets. A decade ago, it's good, but now micro management, harassing employees, force people to quit, company losing money everyday, no future. Be careful. Don't waste your time on this company.
