I worked at NCI full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

NCI values it's employees and places a lot of emphasis on communication and ethics. The company as a whole is a good place to work and the staff is friendly.

Cons

Working for a subsidiary, I found the corporate friendliness and views to be driven out by the subsidiary’s views and business practices. There was very little room for growth or promotion. The company keeps saying they are making money but benefits are continuously getting cut and there were no annual raises in 2012 due to financial strain.

Advice to Management

Get your ducks in a row with your subsidiaries. Train management how to effectively do their job. Deadlines, schedules, budgets and even doling out punishments and terminations are part of an everyday management role. If a manager cannot fulfill these tasks then they shouldn't be management. Promotion to management should come with some actual management knowledge not just a number of years a person has put in with the company. Not everyone is cut out to be management, and if you make a mistake and make someone a manager and it isn't working out, then remove them from that position to one more suited to them.
