A good company to work for if you can stand the life of being a government contractor

Pros

Good benefits
Good pay depending on the contract you are assigned to
Technical support at corporate site is top notch
Lots of intelligent personnel to lean on

Cons

As with any company that relies on government contracts, once the contract ends and/or gets awarded to the next company, you have to accept the new company's offer or move on.

The reason some people complain about inconsistent pay is that everyone's pay is based on the contract you are assigned to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Considering the current environment we work in, the management is doing as good a job as can be expected. The government is squeezing every penny they can out of their contractors and it hurts companies that pride themselves on customer service over cost.

    Pros

    Management is very supportive of their teams and work hard to make sure that each team member has the tools they need to succeed. In addition, they are very supportive of balancing family and work, as much as they can based on the contract requirements.

    Cons

    Limitations as to salaries based on contracts and on opportunities to move ahead in some cases, based on contracts.

    I have been working at NCI

    Pros

    -Competitive salary
    -Flexible work schedule
    -Education reimbursement
    -Company paid online skillport training for Certifications
    -Excellent manager, treated with respect and dignity

    Cons

    -No pay raise or little when moving to position of higher responsibility
    -Salary ranges are all over the place, some employees make up to 8000 per year more then others even when both employees have the same skillset

    -TIP: shoot for a high salary when you are negotiating, do not take the first offer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Pay employees with similiar experience and/or skillset within the same salary range. Some employees feel short changed when they have the same and/or more experience/certifications than their co-worker yet make thousands a year less

    -When employees move to a higher position....pay them more...this is Biblical and common sense
