It is a job.
Customer Services Representative (Current Employee) –  Endicott, NYFebruary 16, 2015
The company defaults to the lowest common denominator. There is little room for advancement, and you are most often treated as a 6 year old. It is, however, a decently paying job that provides healthcare benefits. You are also able to be rehired provided you give two weeks notice before leaving and are not terminated.

Not a career
Lead Functional Analyst (Current Employee) –  Washington DCFebruary 13, 2015
Work for NCI if you need income. Don't work for NCI if you are trying to expand your career as an experienced professional. If you are new to the career then this maybe a good start.
Pros
get paid on payday
Cons
little vision, management is inept.

Client is good to work for, but NCI is very poor at people and resource management
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Sierra Vista, AZJanuary 5, 2015
The company will do anything to ensure a very very low bid on a contract. Their favorite seems to be cutting employee salaries and then hiring others who are not technically qualified for the positions. The client appears to have very little control over what NCI gives them as far as product. No noticeable company standards.
Pros
most of the employees get along very well because they have the same compaint: the company.
Cons
poor personnel management, poor and getting worse salaries

Good Company
Inventory Management Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Peterson AFB, COJanuary 5, 2015
Worked as an Inventory Manager converting ADPE accounts from Government Civilians to Contractors. In the process of doing this, I learned how to image drives, and set computers up for users by assisting other team members when they needed it.
The benefits were not that great. It was a temporary position but I had hope to be hired permanently.

Avoid at all Cost
Information Technology (IT) Support (Former Employee) –  Rome, NYDecember 26, 2014
Even by DoD contractor standards, this is about as bad as it gets. Pay bands are among the worst in the industry, along with abysmal benefits, health care, 401K, and absolutely ZERO training dollars. Train yourself at your own expense, or be dumped on the curb.

The management culture was the worst I've ever worked at- the Program Manager had very little (to no) management experience before getting the PM job, and treated everyone as sub-human, almost "factory" workers (keep in mind this was an IT shop). She would verbally yell and abuse employees in the "pit", where all the IT staff worked, where everyone could see and hear her. She mocked them, used derogatory and threatening language, and nobody in management would believe the warnings about her abusive behavior.

Avoid at all costs - it's a death trap, and a career trap. Some of the team leads were absolutely psycho, although I heard they were "re-assigned" from lead roles after I left (they should have been fired, based on their attitudes, turf-protecting attitudes, abuse and general incompetence).
Pros
paycheck every two weeks
Cons
everything
