    I worked at NCS as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good prata and western food to eat that make you motivate to work. Friendly colleague. Anti-micromanagement, so it will be less stressful environment to work in. Less office politic or almost none with mates, only kena once from FT. If you are self motivate person, then it might have sufficient time to upgrade yourselves.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is not much enforce, so you have be careful if some black sheep might exploit the grey area. In result, you will be overload for the work. Pay increment could be a pain, just make sure fight for higher pay before you get the job. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Management have to think of better way to retain real talented worker regardless of nationalities

    I worked at NCS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    NCS was a great company to work for overall. With a well balanced work/life relationship they made it easy to continue on with them. We had a great direct manager that was always welcoming and handled everything extremely well.

    Cons

    Overall felt that I had little involvement or insight as to what was happening in the company. Very secluded and kept to our own teams.

    Advice to Management

    Management should look at doing more team bonding experiences. The only colleagues I knew were that of my current team.

    Pros

    Very flexible work arrangement (at least in my department) as long as u get the job done, the bosses have no complains about you.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for career progression, and sometimes effort is not recognised as your reporting officer may not be fully aware of what u are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for advancement and have a more robust system in place to recognize efforts of employees.
