I have been working at NCI

Pros

The pay is pretty good and the benefits are first rate.

Cons

Limited advancement opportunities within the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the field managers: If you want to keep your best people, show it. Nobody ever gets tired of hearing that they're doing a great job. If you have critical systems that just seem to work all the time, somebody is doing a great job and you need to notice them!

    Pros

    NCI makes an effort to recruit top level talent, just make sure that you get what you are looking for compensation wise from the start. Don't fall for the "this is what we can bring you on at and then we'll bump you up down the road." I've seen that happen to a bunch of people at NCI.

    Cons

    NCI tries to sell themselves as being bigger than they actually are. They'd like to think that they are one of the big dogs in the defense industry, but actually are struggling to stay afloat. About a year ago they brought in a big shot who was suppose to turn the company around. Instead when NCI started losing contracts because of poor proposal writing they took it out on their employees by cutting benefits. They took away everyone's sick leave that had already been accrued and instituted a new PTO program. The new program went into effect 1 Jan 2012. The employees were notified 31 Dec 2011. Some employees lost hundreds of hours of sick leave that they had accrued over years. And employees who had called out all the time and burned through all their sick leave were unaffected. They also cut 2 federal holidays which is retarded because the government is off so most of the installations are closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward hard work and success. Hold your managers to task when evaluating performance. Don't let them hand out blanke reviews and raises. If an entire installation on a contract gets the same percentage increase in a performance period then someone is not doing their job. Also, an employee stock purchase plan would be great. The sick leave to PTO thing was a huge morale killer. You punished people who came to work everyday and rewarded call outs. Even if you had paid out a percentage of the accrued leave or transferred a percentage to PTO it would have at least shown that you appreciated the employees that had good attendance.
