Big IT company with slowly benefit to staff

Applications Consultant (Current Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I have been working at NCS Pte as a contractor for more than a year

ProsNice colleague, many new Tecs and skills can learn, direct manager is nice to his/her staff.

ConsMost staffs intinitally start with contract, and definitely can use "bully" for how company treat the direct contract staff, no matter how hard working the direct contract staff work, HR don't care, company don't care, what you get is the same, no any change, "you work more, you get more" which is not suit for direct contract staff in NCS. This is a very bad policy which definitively hard to motivate the contract staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to treat the direct contract staff as the same as permanent staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Poor work ethics

Project Analyst (Current Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I have been working at NCS Pte full-time for less than a year

Prosabove average salary.... coffee is good in canteen

ConsPeople will expect you to work for 24/7, You will not be asked rather you will be informed to work on weekend (which happens almost 3 weeks of the month). You can't make any plans once you are working for it. Most of the projects having support kind of activity, there is nothing as such development.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
