    Pros

    Low increase, sometimes high bonus but does not apply to all.

    Cons

    High demand of your time. Consultants need to work long hours. Sometimes 34 hours during delivery period.

    Advice to Management

    Need to take care of the foot soldiers. Many IT Managers are useless. They don't work much and team lead does not even work well. Managers give the task to team leads and they go home early, team leads give their supposed to be task but instead delegated it to the developers then they go home early. Developers stay late and left to starve. A few pm and leads are good though. This review is not for the company but I'm doing this to inform the management that many employees in this company is incompetent. Company is good but the managing work force is bad.

    Pros

    Plenty of time to rethink what's are best for your site customers. Processes, procedures, new hardware and plenty of new technologies to play around. If you have the clearance, plenty of playground.

    Cons

    Depends which site you are posted to. The site that I am posted. The site manager is a sly, cunning fox and in the business of flipping Prata meaning confirming one thing and changing another, excel at denying staff feedback, insulting staffs intelligence, suppressing his favourite staffs negative feedback. ATSM is appointed by him, being a puppet and excel only in giving what customer wants without thinking of NCS operational needs. WORSE planner for 10 man operations, even lousy for trips to overseas. Loved to ask women workers to give him a shoulder massage. Low EQ, stupidity rides in his management skills, only wants to work to get his monthly paycheck. Loves to walked around in slippers and attend meetings. Overall a selfish manager. No work recognition, taiji culture

    Advice to Management

    Top management, replace the site overkill tsm, atsm and helpdesk atl, reinstated proper working culture. All teams needs a uplifting service.
