I have been working at NCI Building Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

NCI is a great company to work for. I always admire at its enthusiasm in implementing new technology. It allows the company to increase the employee's productivity and to improve the job satisfaction at the same time.

Cons

Company relies heavily on conventional wisdom rather than trying to understand/implent the industry's best practices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is still lot of opportunity for the company to use Industry's best practices in many areas like quality, project management. Why always come up with your own customized unique solution when there is a proven best practice methodology?

    I worked at NCI Building Systems as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    41K, medical, vision, scholarship but you must stay for 3 years to pay it back.

    Cons

    Lack of carrer path program. Most people stay in one same position for life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a management or MBA diploma and get prepared to perform management and supervisory functions – such as employee recruiting, labor relations, employee performance monitoring and evaluation, and employing motivation and problem solving techniques.

    I worked at NCI Building Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They paid well and west Houston location convienent.

    Cons

    Not enough IT staff to cover the company's needs. Too many VPs and President demanding immediate satisfaction at the expense of production. Be prepared to work like a galley slave and pick up others jobs because coworkers are too overworked to perform their full range of duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need more IT staff to cover the various sites. To have one full timer to cover a plant the size of a small college plus three other remote sites along with executive support for a number of VPs borders on both insanity and bad business. To expect a new hire who you failed to convey the full background and breadth of the job to immediately pick up where a senior employee (who caved in under the workload and fled) left off borders on malicious hiring.
