    Pros

    Stable job. People who are idling around but still got pay and receives stable bonus.

    Cons

    Slow career growth and poor management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to project management and work delegation. Project managers are not efficient at managing project requirements and timeline. Implementation phase always gets cut short in the end, resulting in developers working overtime and there are lots of bugs in the end product.

    Pros

    Only if you are lucky to be in a team with like-minded and responsible team person, you will find it bearable to work at . Do not expect good employee perks, whether you are a good employee or a bad employee. Everyone get almost the same perks, barring the senior management

    Cons

    If you are unlucky to be a team where everyone from the manager to the team members put self above the interest of their job responsibility, best of luck to you and your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just shut down the company.

    Current Contractor - Applications Consultant in Singapore (Singapore)

    I have been working at NCS as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    No doubt, NCS is a very good training for the freshie where it is a place for you to expose in different projects and tons of opportunity to interact with different people. As most of the projects a government related hence the challenges are there to sharpen your soft skills where you will never pick up from the book.

    Cons

    I have joined NCS for 1 year and 6 months time as of today as a sub-contracted staff. I have received interest from the management of converting me to a Direct contract staff but until today there is no progress other than listening to the same message over and over again. The increment is totally off-track and i would say i am likely under pay right now, i have refresh with 2 bosses now and they are constantly shocked on my pay because they cannot believe that a BA is still earning that little. Monetary prospect already lose out, and no surprise on the benefits too.
    I have no compassionate leave at all not even a single day and i was nearly forced by the company to take on no-pay leave during those days when one of my family member has passed on. No bonuses,AWS,13th month are not the biggest grief but small compassionate action isn't there then it is a big matter. Career progression is relatively slow in this company as compare to some international corporate where they consistently provide career progress advise and how to move on to the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving towards a globalization market, NCS is still very far away as the internal management is still not there yet. Talent management is one of the very good example, employee today looking at themselves as a capital not a resource because every young individual believe that they have the growing value in them and also growing the value of the company. Unfortunately, i still seeing NCS adopting the old concept of treating their employee as a resource, hence the turnover rate in this company is relatively high and indirectly impacting the performance of the company. I hope the management can better looking into this, every single individual who works for the company is an asset regardless of sub-contract,contract or permanent staff.
