Terrible Contracting Company
IT Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Sierra Vista, AZJune 23, 2015
This company is based out of Washington D.C. and contracts it's services out to various military locations. They under bid the contracts and in-turn have to lay people off and under pay employees. No job security at all with this company.
Pros
It's a job, there were great local managers
Cons
Everything else.

Poor Local Management Team
Budget Analyst (Former Employee) –  Ft. Huachuca, AZJanuary 11, 2014
If you live in Sierra Vista, NCI is NOT the place you want to go to for a job. Local management is unethical, biased, unsupportive, and tends to pick its 'favorites' out of a group of hard-working employees. Long, long hours at work result in little time spent with your family - local management even expects one to work on weekends and holidays. Many people were laid off a little over two years ago, and some were even black-balled in the contractor community by the local, current management team. Go to work for NCI and be ready to suck up to unscrupulous, ugly program managers who require you work yourself to the bone.
Cons
poor work environment & leadership

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.

Appropriate facility with adequate space to facilitate the requirements.
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Fort Belvoir, VAApril 30, 2012
In working for NCI was a great experience and a very professional organization. The company took care of its employee in all aspects. The work environment was that of what one would expect. The Cooperate Headquarters personnel were very responsive when needed an answer and kept employees informed and up to date. I was just a great company and wonderful people to be a part of for almost five years.
Pros
pay raises, time off, company functions, communication

Not Bad
Network Engineer (Current Employee) –  Honolulu, HIJanuary 6, 2014
Decent company: not bad, but also nothing too great either. NCI has some benefits/perks typical of a large business, yet is able to rapidly make things happen and has the agility of a smaller business.

As many of NCI's positions are contract work, the typical day at work and coworkers greatly varies, as few people we work with and among are fellow NCI employees.
Pros
minor perks/incentives, decent medical, quick to provide re-imbursments and resources needed to do job
Cons
ambiguous management chain

I love NCI
Sr. Cybersecurity Engineer (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCMay 27, 2014
Great management, great benifits. Unfortunatley with some contracts you have to move on in order to move up in "rank", but this company offers potential and actively searchs within their ranks for people who may be a good fit in a new upcoming position. I know people who have been with the company for 7 years so that says alot.

Hard work and no pay
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 19, 2013
- great co workers over all
- management is ok but could do better in the communication department
- everyone whispers about what goes on and then smiles at you
- hard work but not fairly compensated at the staff level
- hardest part of the job: communication
- enjoyable part of the job: co workers
- benefits are okay but not the best

dont expect much of anything free. dont expect exciting bonuses in the current economic conditions.
Pros
flexibility, no micromanagement
Cons
pay

Lots of resources and autonomy
Sales (Current Employee) –  Norcross, GAFebruary 15, 2014
On the phones by nine, co-workers that help each other, when needed. Management there as a resource and coaching, when needed, I learn daily through experience and reading sales books. The hardest part of my job is prospecting, but I'm good at it. My paycheck and a sense of accomplishment are the fun parts of my job.
Pros
little supervision. good benefits healthcare, etc. allowed to have lunch at my desk.
Cons
one hour and fifteen commute to work, eachday.

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

Office politics
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Sierra Vista, AZMay 26, 2013
Nowhere to move up endless you are part of the boys club. Office politics and backstabbing from management down. Kept on the road with no communication. Promises to the troops not kept. Thet will say anything to get you to do the project and then put you on LWOP. Went on it four times in two years. Not ethical. I now work for SAIC who treat me much better.
Pros
a paycheck
Cons
office politics, no communication, boys club

Comment – May 30, 2013

While NCi is a great company to work for I would well advise anyone pursuing a career as a contractor for the US Army. The political rife right now makes any Army post a terrible place to work as far as quality of life as an employee. The Army has a unique culture of backstabbing contractors at every turn and your employment can be terminated at the drop of a hat if you suddenly run afoul to some uneducated army officer. Be advised don't work on any Army Contract it's bad news and since contracts turn over every year there is absolutely no job security with the Army!
