    I have been working at NCS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1) You will be given hell lot of importunity as long you are capable.
    2) Generally good benefits compared to local company
    3) Plenty of events (though you may have hard time finding time for it)
    4) It's a place to train yourself in one of the toughest environment (FSIZ dept)
    5) It's expanding overseas..so travelling opportunity is there
    6) Generous bonus (~2.5months average)

    Cons

    1) Very small annual increment
    2) You will really need to be very passionate, otherwise pressure and stress will override you
    3) HR is not too friendly in helping employee. In fact, it's my worst experience facing them.
    4) Long working hour (that's why you need passion)
    5) Burden by political fight, if you are at newbie or intermediate

    Advice to Management

    My department management are generally good. Things that can improve:
    1) Team building - Think it's pretty lacking over there
    2) Salary increment
    3) Encourage employee to take up course (by forcing them take leave)

    "Friendly place to work, but performance is based on popularity, not effort"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Very friendly culture, very nice colleagues
    - Tries to promote work-life balance

    Cons

    - Underperformers are not fired. Instead, they're given a basic performance appraisal and can stay there till they retire.
    - Remuneration doesn't match the workload.
    - Performance is not based on your outputs but rather, how much your boss likes you and how much you suck up to your boss.
    - Stupid culture where staying back late or 'wayanging' is more important than output. You are seen as hardworking if you stay back most nights, even if you are just staring at the screen / surfing Facebook.

    Advice to Management

    - Get rid of underperformers so that remuneration and bonuses are better. Most other IT companies would have fired those people a long time ago.
    - Create a more fair performance appraisal where it is based on the amount of work done.
    - Understand that staying back late does not mean the person is hardworking or producing much work. There are lots of people who go out for a 2 hour lunch, have numerous kopi breaks and smoke breaks and even sleep in the staff lounge.
