    I worked at NCS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start with, as it provides good learning opportunity. Staff is allowed to go for sponsored external training.

    Cons

    Being attached permanently to client's site does not make the staff feel very attached to NCS itself. Staff is least awared of what's happening back in NCS

    Advice to Management

    For those staffs who are stationed at client's site, they should be more awared what 's happening back at ncs too.

    I worked at NCS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are not caring about your future then it's okay to refuse any workload and kick back. If you don't want just sit there and do nothing then you can ask to do more. It's quite flexible. Many people choose this company to retire.

    Cons

    If you are in some project with an urgent deadline, then a lot of OT should be anticipated. Most of the times the messes in projects come from lack of management or bad management, also from engineers lack of responsible .

    Advice to Management

    Please do your work

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

    Pros

    1) Competitive pay for fresh grads, even those from universities not well recognised
    2) Structured training programme for entry-level fresh hires
    3) Friendly staff

    Cons

    1) Lack of salary progression despite company growth
    2) Tedious, over-structured and ineffective performance review process
    3) Poor utilisation of manpower; some are very busy and overburdened, others can go for coffee breaks all day
    4) Complete lack of transparency in renumeration policies

    Advice to Management

    1) Pay mid-level employees more competitively; people promoted internally should be paid just as well as those promoted externally (studies shown internally promoted personnel are better performers anyway).
    2) Make renumeration policies more visible to employees so that they can understand what the company values. Existing employees should be paid just as competitively as fresh hires to prove that the company is worth staying in.
