Working for NCI Information Systems was a good experience. Management cares about their employees, and they pay a fair wage.
Principal Graphics Specialist (Former Employee) –  Oak Ridge, TN4 December 2015
Managers listen to their employees, and respond to employee input. They pay a fair wage, and encourage their employees to acquire ongoing training and development. They paid for the training. I had a very good experience working for them.
Pros
Management listened to their employees; and respected their input.
Cons
There were no cons in my experience with them.

Poor Local Management Team
Budget Analyst (Former Employee) –  Ft. Huachuca, AZ11 January 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.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor work environment & leadership

Love that they were always making sure that we at a group was ok. The Vice President of the company always made it a point to make sure that if we needed anything that he was a phone call away.

Senior Analyst/ Logistics Management Specialist (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VA20 August 2013
This by far one of the most rewarding job's I have had thus far in my life time. This job was at time very challanging but in the same breath the most rewarding. Challanging due to dealing with high ranking official's, to vendors,etc. But the rewarding part of being able to help with the well being of the Solider is something priceless. I have never meet a group of people that no matter the rank would push their sleeves up and work as a group to get the job done. We were there for one reason and that was at the end of the day the safelty of the Military.
What I learned from that position was that each and everyone of us work hard to do the best in our job...but what the military does goes above and beyond the job description.
Pros
Working for the Military
Cons
None

Would not recomend this place
call center rep (Former Employee) –  Endicott NY11 June 2015
This company constantly requested that reps make up time for days that the company gave us off, overly strict punishment for the smallest mistakes, required call time or less for phone calls which means you cant properly help customers when they call in but the company requires that you assist them to the fullest which means you'll be on the phone with a customer longer than they want you to be...also company has tried to take back money from its employees that was given to them from holiday pay.
Pros
fellow call center reps are nice people
Cons
many, including management and the company as a whole

Just another Defense contracting body shop
Senior Techy anonymous (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TX4 September 2015
They do not look for another contract for you to work at the end of contract as is usually promised but never delivered.

Basically you are project based, and shown the door when they lose the contract. Typical of most defense contractors today.
Just a temporary job, not a career.
Pros
none
Cons
temp work

Call center
payments/customer service (Former Employee) –  Vestal, NY26 November 2013
Was a mediocre work environment. Very strict rules about time spent on phones and handling accounts. Fulfilling a customer service role over the phone. Very unrewarding job and can lead to depression as mistreatment from customers is met with equal abuse from management. Tried to take a vacation at one point only to be met by my manager upon returning to "make up for time missed" regardless of having used only PTO and not just a leave of absence. You are occasionally rewarded for doing a good job, but severely punished for even the slightest of errors or altering your "script" for calls.
Pros
Can get large amount of hours/pay if you want or need to
Cons
very strict work environment, constant belittling by customers, very unrewarding

Easy to get RR but you'll need it
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Reston, VA13 February 2013
Can be a hard work place with sometimes overwhelming amounts of work that needs doing, while at the same time no one seems to know your doing it. There is not much credit thrown around but blame is in plenty supply and no one want to take it while everyone wants to dish it out. Nci is always on top of training for the job you have been assigned, but if you want to learn more you'll have to do that on your own. Because of those things it is difficult to show your ready to advance, they also like to hire new people for that new higher position you have been waiting for rather then promoting you. Vacation is plentiful and rarely will anyone bother you while your on it, also the people are very lax on when you ask for it no two week notice needed, 24 hours is more than enough! People are mostly pretty friendly.
Pros
easy going vacation time, not bothered while at home(generally), mostly relaxed environment
Cons
advancement is difficult, once you can do your job they are loathed to teach anything else

Overall, the job itself is good. I really enjoy this kind of work. Company treatment of employees not so good. Also pay is too low.
Call Center Representative (Current Employee) –  Endicott, NY24 October 2013
Management tends to spend inordinate time creating rules and pointing out mistakes. Very little positive feedback on job performance. Supervisors become annoyed when employees need help and have a generally angry demeanor.

I love my coworkers and have mostly positive interactions with them.

Dealing with attitudes of management

Helping the customers and interacting with trainers from the company that hired NCI.
Pros
Good physical locaton and physical work environment
Cons
Poor healthcare packages, Poor management attitudes and behaviors.

Terrible management & terrible training
Fraud Investigator (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TN27 June 2012
Promises of flexible schedule that were false. Very difficult job, very stressful, management changing their mind on how they want things done daily. Each manager was very different & the standards for employees were different depending on manager. The flexible schedules were different per manager & employees were treated differently depending on who the manager was. Management was very unprofessional as they would talk about other employees to their staff and others. Goals were not realistic and some of the managers were very incompetent and could not answer questions. They would send you to other staff to answer even the simple questions that they should know. In addition, the training that you receive was the worst that I have ever experienced. Then you were expected to know everything and held to the same standards as someone who had been there years. Very high turnover rate.
Pros
pay
Cons
poor management, poor training, different standards for different employees

Work employees are friendly
Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Fort Huachuca, Az.11 July 2013
Had to watch your back all the time because of the customer. you needed to stay active every minute of the day, which was fine when there was work to be done. When a project was finished, you had better be doing something or the "customer" would turn you in for not doing your job or wasting time. The management would not back you up on much of anything if you tried to defend your actions. Their feelings were, "the customer is ALWAYS right".
Pros
Not too many.
Cons
Paychecks are always nice, but they were not very much and it you had a problem with your timecard, it took an act of congress to get it straightened out.

Client is good to work for, but NCI is very poor at people and resource management
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Sierra Vista, AZ5 January 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

Women not wanted
Information Assurance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Virginia20 March 2013
There is no support for women in engineering. The only females that are promoted to management roles are in accounting and similiar not male dominanted roles. As a black female woman, I got no support even though my program manager was a female. Men getting promoted; support their friends and sabbatoge other women. When you complain about them saying inappropriate remarks sexually or calling you a wino management does nothing. I quit when asked to sign a written reprimand. They believe whatever the men say. Women stay away.
Cons
men only wanted

Not a career
Lead Functional Analyst (Current Employee) –  Washington DC13 February 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.
