    Pros

    it's a job until i find another one. Their recruiters are nice, but it's all down hill from there....

    Cons

    Questionable ethics, lack of true leadership and decision making, culture of hiring friends vice the right talent, low morale, environment of gossip, mismanaged lay offs, meetings for the sake of process with little decision making. No accountability, no one makes even easy decisions - we just kick the can down the road. Many employees feel they never know who will be let go, very uncertain environment. Working here keeps you up at night thinking about what you could possibly do differently to survive the horrible corporate environment.

    Advice to Management

    I would doubt the company's owner knows how his "executive team" really mismanages things. Many people are in jobs over their heads. Completely out of touch with operations in the field/programs (except for the Operations SVPs). No room for employee growth, once you're pigeon holed, stuck in your lane with no where to go but out (thankfully). Hope the owner and President realize this environment, because the people they have surrounded themselves with will never tell them the emperor has no clothes.

    Pros

    Decent hours, good benefits, convenient location and restaurants nearby. A few helpful co-workers. Tuition reimbursement for those planning on returning to school.

    Cons

    Upper management is fully unaware of how the department managers mistreat the employees. A cover your a** type of environment, everyone is out for themselves. A lot of incompetent middle aged workers, takes a long time to get simple tasks completed. Poor compensation compared to other companies in IT Contracting.

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    Pros

    Salary - if you negotiate well.

    Cons

    The company just wants you to do one job, with no challenges, even when you ask for them. You are a robot to fill their clogs. Don't be 30 seconds late for work or you get written up. They run their IT shop like an IT factory. It's a bunch of "good ol boy" networks with managers/supervisors protecting each other...senior NCI HQ has no idea how abusive their managers/supervisors/team leads can be at local sites. I've seen the PM and team leads literally screaming threats at employees. Employees are afraid to say anything for fear of retribution though.

    Advice to Management

    Get real managers in place, not folks who have no experience with being PM's and Team Leads. The Team Leads and PM's have never filled those roles before NCI - hence the poor management.
