    Pros

    Being paid is better than not being paid.

    Cons

    I was a sub to NCI before they stopped grouping with us and we had to work for NCI directly. They underbid the contract by 30% then gave every person a pay cut. While I was working for a sub we were off for two months. During this time the company sent all of us to training and continued to pay us for a month until we had to use leave or take no pay. NCI employees had to use their leave or take leave without pay during the whole two months of nonworking.

    HR information was very organized, pay was solid, work life balance

    Cons

    NCI purchased Computech Inc. as of January 2nd, 2015. More bureaucracy to get approval for training or get something paid for. Benefits are below par

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Just no straight answers from management.

    Cons

    Does not fight for loyal employees. Once a contract is lost you are gone. My boss saved my position but after many years of service his position is gone. It does not seem fair that just because one contract is lost that your employment is over.

    Advice to Management

    Keep that Roy Rossier in the Fairview office or the whole SAFB office will go under.

    Pros

    There's a playfully competitive environemnt that really brings out the best in the workers.

    Cons

    The pay on my contract is really dismal.

    Advice to Management

    Stop posting jobs with a title "Tier I PC Technicain" and a job description of "Provide Tier II Support" then paying us minimum of field for PC I tech. Seriously I'd love to work for you guys but I'm getting paid less than 60% of industry average.

    Salary, benefits, work-life balance are ok.

    Normally the training provided is cheap. There is a lot of micro-management and baby-sitting.

    Company needs younger blood, most of their people in their Sierra Vista AZ branch is past retirement age.
