    I worked at NCS full-time

    Pros

    - I enjoyed working with my coworkers in the same department; they were kind and helpful all the times.
    - Decent benefits for a Singaporean company.
    - Good 9 to 5 jobs for family-oriented workers.
    - Decent CSR programs that allowed you to give back to the society.
    - Decent pay rise.

    Cons

    - The sales teams could be overly aggressive and they would do anything to close their sales if the legal department did not stop them.
    - Do not expect too much bonus increase.
    - Rigid, conservative and old-fashioned management style (very much the opposite of Google).
    - The management team was reluctant to accept proposal for changes.
    - Work could be quite mundane and less challenging.

    Advice to Management

    I hope the company has moved forward to new practices and policies in managing the company. To thrive in the tech industry, you have attract young and brilliant brains by undergoing major reform in the company. You should be more willing to accept proposal for changes instead of maintaining the status quo.
