A paycheck. Lots to play with and learn, but little actual work to be done; no focus or direction.

I worked at NCI full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good pay, smooth onboarding process. Upper management seemed friendly and sincere.

Cons

Team lead was not very knowledgeable or friendly. Was little to no focus as to what exactly we were supposed to be doing. Had to create my own work to do since very little was handed down. Lines of responsibility were blurred. Lots of bureaucratic roadblocks and politics. Contract stability was dubious, double standards for some employees who apparently did not have to meet minimum requirements for their position. Most there seemed to do just the minimum to keep their job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rather than simply hiring to fill a seat, verify the person is competent in their skill set and has some motivation and initiative to work. Have some interaction with your employees and see how they are fitting in to their role.

    Pros

    It's a pay check. that is all.

    No career growth. Employees are told to look outside of the company for a promotion by leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I thought you were a "People" company. It's time to invest in your people.
