Vancuren and Ferguson finally being forced out. Two of the worst executives at NCR ever.
How much does a software engineer earn there? It'd be nice to know exactly how much NCR saves by outsourcing our jobs. I've heard some numbers, but considering that we're not talking about India but Europe, it's hard to believe they're true (less... — read more
I am quite aware that I might become the target of the next layoffs because of my age. Just thinking about this makes me really nervous. I started looking for a new job a long time ago, but it’s hard to get hired when you’re old. I am interested... — read more
With more and more companies laying off workers i expect NCR to follow soon. Not like we never had layoffs besides this but this time it will be worse. Expect a 20% US employee headcount reduction at least.
If I could sum up my few years here, I think the right word for it would be - misery. I was stuck here and now that I have given notice I finally feel some relief. I don’t think there’s a single person who hasn’t drastically improved their quality... — read more
Started working on my resume already. Recession is on the horizon and strategic review will result in at least 15-20% workforce cut.
I always hope for the best, but I try to prepare for the worst. What do you think how far we are from the cuts?
And try to unionize. But it’s an all in for it or it won’t work.. That’s the only thing left to try other than get a different job. It may not stop a them from put up the for sale sign, but it would sure hurt them a lot on that sale. — read more
Did his huckster country boy thing stop working with the new hires?
To those who are anxious thinking about possible layoffs, I can only say that after the initial huge stress I experienced when they cut me, I found a new job in a very short time. It is only now that's become clear to me that I should've left NCR... — read more
People talking about layoffs and some of them think that we in Serbia are stealing their jobs. Let me clarify it for you - In Serbia you work for NCR IN MOST CASES if you HAVE TO. Layoffs for you = more work for us for the same almost non-existing... — read more
Anybody notice there are 0 job openings listed on the NCR site? 2 months ago there were hundreds. Last time there were 0 was during the AT&T buyout. No hiring until it is was settled if any folks coming from AT&T to NCR. Maybe Hayford and gang close... — read more
There are more and more rumors about cuts. Any insights on possible targets?
If you are a contingent worker reading this, I suggest you freshen up your resume.
There are multiple reports of buyout interest. Wonder what will happen to existing employees ?
Sometimes it turns out that layoff is not a bad thing. I personally think for many here a layoff would give them a much needed kick to get out of this misery. One should always look on the positive side as well. Given recent developments, the... — read more
Stock crashed 25% after Q1 earnings when ELT was trying to get it up. What could this mean? More layoffs?
Everyone is saying that it has become unbearable to work here, and at the same time, they are still giving it their best. I know people who hate working here and yet are among the hardest workers. If it's so bad here, isn't it better to focus more... — read more
Apart from the people who are here only until they find something better, only those who still believe and hope that something will get better remain at NCR. I listened in disbelief to my colleague the other day who is convinced that everything... — read more
They have to find a way to be right Even when they are wrong Fu-k productivity and the client. Micro managers have to be made ok. They put you between the interest of the client and their ego What’s the natural progression and why is any one... — read more
Their expectations of employees are unrealistically high. Management tries to convince us that nothing we do is enough, even though most of us do double workloads. NCR acts like it’s the only gig in town and the only place where we can work. I am... — read more
Did I see that and hear that right? The girl who got the most views and likes, did not win. and then, her ideas are now being used (certificate programs) and her comments are being specifically responded to (meritocracy and Andy singing about 800... — read more
I see all these smiley faces at fun Thursday’s acting all happy but little do they know they are next in line to be laid off. NCR does not care how good you are at your job i repeat Ncr does not care about performance it’s all about finding your... — read more
They (manager) were given a choice: leave or get cut. And nothing to do with their performance - their role is being sent overseas.
I think it is wrong to call those at the top "leadership". Because, we all know what a real "leader" is and what the characteristics of real leadership are. NCR, in that sense, doesn't have a real leadership. Sometimes I try imagine what real... — read more
The company culture is toxic and it breeds toxic managers and even toxic employees. My one piece of advice for those who are considering joining NCR is this: STAY AWAY.
I just accepted an offer!
It's become very clear to me that the hardest part about leaving NCR is doing so mentally, deciding to leave, that's the tricky part. Once a person overcomes that mental block, finding a new job is not very difficult, is it? It took me a month to... — read more
What if we hit another recession in a month or so. If oil continues to be expensive we'll have a recession, we always do.
I finally gave notice. NCR is just a waste of time. From this perspective, working here should be considered as an option only if there is no other. Now I'm trying to remember the reason why I thought this was a good place to work. I probably had... — read more
It seemed like she hurt his feelings when she said he was a difficult boss and then he started being very passive aggressive to her. Maybe I was imagining it but some weird energy up there for sure
I have no motivation to work here at all. I'm only here because I still haven't gotten a new job. How do they even expect employees to stay motivated to work? No one believes their false promises anymore. I wish I had some motivation, it would be... — read more
If we have to close our offices in Eastern Europe (not just Russia, who knows how things with Serbia will play out in the long run) maybe the management will realize that it's not as profitable as they thought to outsource so much work. I might be... — read more
NCR donated funds to UNICEF and that's a good start but when will they join the pool of multinational companies that have severed ties and pulled out of Russia ? NCR maintains 2 offices in Russia.
Was RIF'ed in 2018 after 44 years. Managers never know, they have zero input to the process. Decision made at EVP level. They call HR for list of names over 40 years old and more than 15 years of service. Then check to see if they are part of the old... — read more
It is no longer clear to me why I made the effort to have a good performance. It seems to me more and more that neither hard work nor performance means anything at NCR. I no longer think it’s crucial when it comes to layoffs? Those who put in... — read more
Heard they are doing merit increases in serbia becz employees started leaving in numbers and were finding better pay elsewhere. This is being offset by laying off US based employees. 1 US employee equals 3 in serbia.
Serbia refuses to sanction or support sanctions against Russia. They enjoy a cozy relationship with Russia and Vladimir Putin. Google it. You picked a great partner NCR.
