    Pros

    If you know to lick the boot of management then you will enjoy your stay.

    Cons

    1. I have worked for other MNCs but never found a company of 5k+ employee with virtually no processes, no coding standards (there are few exceptions to this).

    2. Most of the managers are worthless. Their appraisal of employee is greatly influenced by their interaction (read lunch,coffess, buttering) etc with the employee rather than the work the employee does.

    3. Good bonuses are only for Managers. Appraisal is a joke.

    4. Company with this size has virtually no training system. Their are few trainings but that too just to promote their outdated platform or for the technologies that are outdated.

    5. Most of the Programmers working with here for more than 3-4 years hardly are aware of the latest techonologies.

    6. Awards are joke.

    I worked at NCS full-time

    Pros

    "Recession-proof" & "retrench-proof" because most of their projects awarded are from the Singapore government.

    Good place to learn for newbies.

    Nice bunch of people to work with (depends on project).

    Cons

    Low salary & horrid increments & bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better to keep talent.

    Agree with you that the people are nice. Pay and Bonus are dependent on job size and performance. Totally agree that we want to keep our talents!

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

    Pros

    Good local presence and strong government link engagements and projects. Good risk management to help mitigate huge risk to the company.

    Cons

    Too much red tapes and effort spent on qualifications, and yet there are many gaps and things not running smooth as it should be. Business strategy may be there, but not properly flow down to working level, staff "just do it" for the sake of meeting KPI on paper only, and waiting for direction to change course and do the same "just do it" attitude all over again.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems on cloud nine above while employees hitting the wall most of the time. There is vacuum in between that the management need to fix, as they sure aware. If they are not aware ... then gone case.
