Thread regarding NCR Corp. layoffs

Pink slips

Hope the management and ceo of this company feel good laying off loyal hard workers while they do nothing and collect their year end bonuses. I worked for this company for years and was a top performer. Got my pink slip with 2 kids and a pregnant wife. Insurance cut off after today. Thank you NCR.

Leadership is a heart matter. If the heart is not right, your leadership isn't going to be right.
The heart of a leader has to be focused on serving others first. This will reveal the leader's true intent. It is not a heart motivated by self-interest, status, position, or power. It's a heart that is driven by service and the overarching life philosophy of "How many lives can I impact for the better?"
Time for a tune-up?
To that end, there are things to being a good leader that just cannot be ignored. If you are too busy to put these practices into daily motion, it may be time for a leadership tune-up. Here's what I would recommend getting you running on all cylinders.

  1. Be open to feedback

Many autocratic managers view feedback as a threat to their power, self-worth, and position, which explains why they are opposed to it and often react fearfully and defensively to feedback. Great leaders, on the other hand, view feedback as a gift to improve upon their leadership so they can serve others and their mission better. They value truth and honesty and diverse perspectives for bettering themselves and their businesses. Even when feedback is negative, it prompts an exercise in curious exploration to find out where things went wrong so that it doesn't happen again. This is setting your heart right.

  1. Develop self-awareness

So many high-level managers get caught up in situational dramas in which they're typically the main character. Since toxic fear or insecurity and false pride operate in tandem to protect their self-interest, it hijacks their thinking and potential for healthy relationships. Great leaders don't react to people or situations, they respond to them by being quick to listen and understand. They apply self-awareness and curiosity to get varied perspectives and won't get riled up or let their emotions sabotage their thought process. They take a step back, assess what happened, and get clarity before their next move. Whatever that next move is, their integrity steps in to end a conflict, help others, and make things better.

  1. Pump the fear out of the atmosphere

When fear, uncertainty, and lack of direction permeates the workplace, you begin to see fewer risks being taken and fewer problems being solved. Team members need to feel psychologically safe to be at their best. To create a safe environment for your employees, managers need to do what great leaders do consistently well: pump the fear out of the work environment. First, honor your team's voice by allowing them the space to present ideas and express objections. Second, invest in their success and regularly communicate that their development is a top priority. Finally, set high expectations for team members by giving feedback that ensures they know how valued and valuable they are.

Yes I got severance, not much but helped. Did not stop the bad feelings after 44 years and being told on an 11AM conference call by a SEVP of Retail Sales who had 9 months with NCR that "you position has been eliminated and you are terminated as of 5PM today". Then the CS left the call and about 60 of us were left to an HR rep. to vent. Some were even traveling and at customer sites when told. What a circle j_erk.

Yes, it harder to move on as to how many years you have accumulated, if your under 5 years single or have a working partner to help carry then go get another job. It wasn’t this bad between 2000 and 2012 then it just exploded into what your going through now, which is why I would suggest looking outside

That makes sense; yet the outcome seems to still be the same. Hard working people are let go for cheaper labor. And yet, the CEO talks and boast about "caring about their employees." It's such a joke. I'm sorry you lost your job. I doubt he gave up his salary during COVID. How can you trust them?

To add to that. Had a family, wife couldn’t work finally she went on disability. 3 children. Under 6yrs old. Makes it hard to change. You lose the ability to say hey I need to take 2 hour off to get my wife to doctors. I always work through my lunches. So I had some good support from management. They knew my out put. Going somewhere new wouldn’t know this. Think I have the record of the longest phone call. One project we did converting nexcom software around the world I was on the phone 26 hours. Starting from Japan naval bases then following west to Hawaii. Longest phone call I ever had

The first three times I had mangers from other teams come and asked if I would staying if they could get me in as they knew my work ethic. I got along with everyone. At that time I already was 12years in the company. It was like family. I was confident. By the 4 time I had been disconnected and worked from home for 8 years. This is when they closed the level 3 engineering in South Carolina. Most connections I had , had been riffed prior or retired. I was the one who was called back tho after the fourth time to go train Serbia and I said no. If you read that in the other thread. I did apply for some jobs I was well qualified for but HR probably clicked that radio button that’s says do not rehire after that. Yes that is such a thing.

I’m curious... If you kept getting laid off; why did you stick around for it to happen again? There’s rules to this stuff. You don’t stay; you look for something else...

4 times layoff. 1 time I was 8 weeks notice so I could find something. 2nd time I was 6 weeks notice, 3 time I was 4 weeks notice, last time was given 2weeks. Each time the amount of my severance pay in weeks dropped by weeks and medical drop too. The first time I had 6 months severance and healthcare. It dropped each time the last time it was 12 weeks pay and 14 days of health insurance. So do not wait and see if the axe fall on you. It will eventually. It is not worth it

Can anyone else find a news outlet that will cover this story? These guys need to be outed for tossing so many hard working Americans to the curb. It’s not right.

I’m in agreement. Upper management are liars only tying to save their own asses.

Sorry to hear this. Management doesn't care. They're a bunch of weasels scared for their own jobs and far from being real leaders.

Forget severance pay if you get another job. Severance was cut to the bones 10yrs ago. 24 year only 3 months severance. Was 4 times that back in the late 90s early 20s before they started chopping that and medical. Don’t wait times are tough get a job if you can before the axe hits. It took me at my age 9 months to land a job so that 3 months was nothing. I would rather quit leaving to another job with a steady income than worry about Severance and no healthcare.

To bad no can get ahold of Atlanta journal (ajc) to tell them the story I tried. Even wrote to state representatives and president.

Serbia people are make an income of 10% of what Americans make. Sure gonna make those upper management look good and probably a hefty bonus

Sorry for you, same happened to me 11/28/2018 after 44 years. In last 10 years NCR had become a c-ap hole of a company. Latest LT are all in it for themselves. My advice to all is leave now while you can. In 5 years NCR will be gone.

I'm very sorry to hear this; but hopefully you got some type of severance? You're right, NCR is not a company that can be trusted.
