    I have been working at NCI as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great client and location to work.
    The pay if fair to good.

    Cons

    This is not a people company, a body for a seat, they take away holidays that were neigoiated, cut salaries, and lay offs all the time. Very poor middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about people and not your bottom line.

    I have been working at NCI

    Pros

    Some good people working to make a difference for our government and DoD

    Cons

    Senior leadership keeps changing strategies to show the street they are making positive changes without much actual effect. Much of their talent has left and the company leaders who have made a difference were let go. Many of the new hires are from CSC reflecting the COO's past role at CSC. It is a very destabilizing environment contributing to poor morale.

    Also, the amount of leave time awarded per year is low for the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The number of new hires who formerly worked for CSC is making the current, non-CSC employees uncomfortable. The morale is poor in the workforce. NCI needs to stabilize the existing work and then establish a roadmap to grow instead of the current declining numbers.

    Charles Narang is a decent, honest man who is a pleasure to work for; however, he hasn't taken charge to move his company where he knows it should go.

    I have been working at NCI full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    the people i work with. i have met some really good people working here over the years.

    Cons

    the management in this plant do not know care about there employees. and the raises are very pathetic. $.010 to $.25 is what i have seen in almost 8 years of working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    raises of $.10 or $.25 not even worth giving it out just making your employees mad. also treat your employees as if they make a difference and the will in turn actually make a difference. dont treat your employees as if they are just another person. also if you have a family they expect you to stay as late as it takes to make there money and you will loose out on your time with your family. and come time for reviews it makes no difference to them the sacrafices you made for them.

    I have been working at NCI full-time

    Pros

    The experience I had at NCI was excellent. I was able to communicate and implement my skill set into various team projects and it felt good working alongside determined coworkers. A career with NCI allows you flexibility in working hours and vacations. Everybody I worked with was determined and goal orientated, yet friendly.

    Cons

    It took a while to get to know my coworkers.
