    I worked at NCI full-time

    Pros

    Employee's are helpful towards each other.

    Cons

    Worse job ever! You never get time to finish one thing before they give you 10 more! 4 Plant Managers in 5 years! 10 Quality Managers in 15 years! 7 Quality Systems Engineers in the same time frame! Terrible job with very little support. 12 hours and no scheduled breaks!

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself and stop having so many meetings and listen to the guy's on the floor instead of people that don't know what's going on!

    I worked at NCI full-time

    Pros

    You get paychecks at least twice a month.

    Cons

    Management will never answer questions asked by employees, ADA claims go unanswered.

    Advice to Management

    Resign and have a new team take over.

  3. "Claims Analyst"

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

    Pros

    It's a fun atmosphere. No room for advancement. Very unorganized. In the drop of a dime they will switch your position to customer service rep.

    Cons

    Very unorganized. Switch your position for staff reasons.

    I have been working at NCI full-time

    Pros

    It's a paycheck, a small one but a paycheck.

    Cons

    Just about everything. They will bid on contracts with a below basement number just to win said contract then force you to take a 10 to 20K a year pay cut. In doing this, they lose much of the top-tier talent they have and end up trying to hire replacements who will work for the meager wages they offer. You get what you pay for. The benefits are as good as the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Quit cutting employees off at the knees by slashing their pays. That is the whole reason people go to work, to earn a paycheck.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck a small one but that's something

    Cons

    Nothing is documented too many assumptions. Managers only care about advancing not about employees or employee retention.
    NCI is at best a body shop that wants butts in seats.

    Advice to Management

    Quit making stuff up as you go. The communication from management and corporate is terrible and based on assumptions.

    The mug and the pen they give you the beginning.

    If I start getting into it, my PTSD will return. Sorry, can't explain the so many, horrific details.

    Advice to Management

    You have project managers that are working against the projects they're supposed to be managing.

    Pros

    There are a few people that care about your well-being and career. That's all I can say about this company.

    Cons

    Management is out for themselves. You are just a number and make you feel like you are lucky to have a job. Poor morale and no teamwork. High turnover. Stay away!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees' concern and let them be part of a team. We are all experienced professionals that have a brain. Let us use it and make us feel that we matter. Change the dictatorship attitude and you might actually maintain good talented people.

    I have been working at NCI (Less than a year)

    Pros

    We get a paycheck. The hours are standard so work and life balance is good. That is all the good I can say about NCI.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless to what goes on.
    They waited till the last minute to tell us we need a new IT certification. Instead of paying for it them selves, they used a state funded grant and make the training time outside of working hours.
    401K is 50% of 6%, so if you put in 6% they only match 3%.
    Very strict work hours and lunch hours policy, we need approval to make time up, something that is very unusual for this business.
    We can only take time off in 4 hour blocks, they have never explained the reason for this.
    Only health insurance options are high deductible and have a high monthly premium.

    Advice to Management

    Shape up and do your employees right. Not paying for the certifications out of pocket for a requirement, and then making the training outside of work hours is wrong.
    Also pay attention to questions employees ask, I heard someone ask the question about the PTO policy and we never received an answer.
    You are a bad company and there is no way around it, you need serious restructuring to make working for you worth it.
