    Well known company (locally), but no career growth.

    ProsCompany is well known locally and financially stable.

    ConsBase salary is below standard and Management doesn't care about employees. Career growth is non existent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to think more about your employees. You need to filter your new hires and make sure they are qualified for the positions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior IT Consultant

    Senior IT Consultant (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsBig projects, lot of things to learn

    ConsLow salary
    Very bad IT department, they gave me a laptop with 2GB RAM and it is super slow. That has a major impact on my working performance. I have reported to manager and after 6 months they provided me another 2GB

    Advice to Senior ManagementDeveloper should have better laptop/PC comparing to other people !

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good working environment, Low basic

    Network Consultant (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsGood working environment with lots of projects to learn new technologies.
    Can have non-stop projects flowing in at times.

    ConsLower industry basic salary with very restricted HR policies on salary review.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake into account of the role and contributions of that individual and adjust their salary to match market rate to have higher employee retention rate. Good staffs who are considering to leave will then consider thrice.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Your Boss Decide your fate, not point working hard

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)

    Low pay, low prestige, slow growth

    Lead Consultant (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsLots of opportunities to advance yourself if you know how to work the system - flattery and tai chi mostly

    Overall all an ok work environment but very limited and slow growth opportunities - good for retirement

    Access to flexible work conditions to enable a better work-life balance, most managers are pretty flexible if you want to work from home a couple days a week as long as you get the job done and you are not facing clients

    ConsDemanding on time -- puts increasing pressure on maintaining work life balance - I worked long hours daily and brought work home for the weekends each and every one and that is because I can do real works

    Senior Management thinks that too many metrics and rhetorics (and company wide emails) are replacement for good management

    Politics among business unit, lack of motivation for some long serving staff, and agility to push for services to the customers is low... name any problem you have seen in big companies and NCS will exceed your expectation

    Constant cost-cutting actions; mentality of employees seen as liability not asset ... or rather... RESOURCE

    LOW renumeration. Very hard for salary negotiation for the next job

    No fresh grad should even consider this shipwreck. Bad decision. Will stain your resume pretty much forever. No friend should even recommend this place to their friends... unless you know he wants to retire.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are serious about promoting work life balance and rewarding performance... start paying OT for every staff who works beyond the stipulated 40 hours.

    Talk is cheap and email broadcast is cheaper.

    Bye and thank you for the peanuts and stress ball...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Keep the rest

    Lead Consultant (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    Prosgood renumeration if you are in sales team
    if you are permanent, you are pretty much un-fired-able

    Consdigusting work life balance
    low salary
    bonus is reasonable, but since hte basic is low, its low
    difficulty for negotiating salary of next job due to low salary in NCS

    Advice to Senior Managementonce in a while, you will find and managed to develop some of the best people in the field.
    thanks to your stellar talent management, good luck with keeping "the rest"...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
