I worked at NCI Building Systems full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They paid well and west Houston location convienent.

Cons

Not enough IT staff to cover the company's needs. Too many VPs and President demanding immediate satisfaction at the expense of production. Be prepared to work like a galley slave and pick up others jobs because coworkers are too overworked to perform their full range of duties.

Advice to Management

You need more IT staff to cover the various sites. To have one full timer to cover a plant the size of a small college plus three other remote sites along with executive support for a number of VPs borders on both insanity and bad business. To expect a new hire who you failed to convey the full background and breadth of the job to immediately pick up where a senior employee (who caved in under the workload and fled) left off borders on malicious hiring.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice people to work with. Company has been around a long time and will invest in new technology to try and stay ahead of the competition.

    Cons

    They hire too many upper management people and lay off middle managment creating high levels of stress for those workers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire so many Senior Managers. They just create more work for the few mid-level managers that are left after layoffs or replacing mid-level managers with clerical staff.


  2. "The sales Team is great to work for, Stay away from the engineering side. To many higher ups worried about there jobs"
