    Pros

    NCI finds good people to put on the contracts they support, a task made more difficult in this particular region due to its somewhat remote nature. When push came to shove on the contract I supported and there was a demand for contractors to become Security+ certified, the company came through and provided a boot-camp-like training session.

    Cons

    Once on a contract, there's not much room for movement. This could be due to the way the contract is written, or perhaps it is because of the difficulty of finding qualified people who want to work in this area, or something else...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer more educational opportunities for people in the more administratively-bound positions to continue to retain technical skills. What makes me, for example, a good technical worker is my technical skills...but when I'm in a role where I write papers more than work on equipment, those technical skills rust. To counter that, there needs to be more opportunity to take certification courses - to help keep the technical details more in practice.

    Pros

    Working at the NCI you get to be part of an amazing diverse team of people that makes a difference to the people that need to utilize the services. The opportunities to learn and advance are numerous and the benefits and teamwork make it an extremely valuable experience.

    Cons

    I do not have any negatives about working at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Improvement could be made on redundant cross department procedures, and procedures and processes in some areas could be streamlined to be more efficient and simplified.
