I've worked at better places before.
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee), Montgomery, ALJuly 8, 2013
Upper level management is not up front. Things take forever to get done. Working at NCI would be so much better if management actually acted as if they cared about their employees.

Good Company but bad management.
Welding and Painting Lead Man (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 1, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: long hours, no set schedule, inconsiderate management, low wages
Its a good company with great benefits but the management that they currently have at the Houston plant is hurting the company. There is no balance between work and your personal life, they do not care about you or your family because they expect you to work every day of the week 12+ hours and when you ask for some time off they get upset. They have – more... to realize that the people in the shops are the ones making the money and they should be a little more considerate of their personal lifes. – less

Highly skilled work environment where learning was required at all times
Senior Engineer / Wideband Technician (Former Employee), Sierra Vista, AZJune 22, 2013
No day at NCI was the same. I was contracted to do many different jobs while employed at NCI. My first job while employed was to train government officials on a new trouble ticket system. My second job was to supervise the construction of a satellite system in Fort Bragg, NC and perform Quality Control and Quality Assurance for the Government Representatives. – more... My final job was to design and implement Data Centers and satellite centers in Guam, Camp Roberts, CA, Fort Bragg, NC, Germany and FT Meade, VA – less

Office politics
Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Sierra Vista, AZMay 26, 2013
Pros: a paycheck
Cons: office politics, no communication, boys club
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 – more... better. – less

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!

Pros: the shop was close to home

Women not wanted
Information Assurance Engineer (Former Employee), VirginiaMarch 20, 2013
Cons: men only wanted
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 – more... 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. – less

Great company to work for.
Help Desk-level (Current Employee), Fayetteville, NCMarch 5, 2013
Pros: very supportive company for advancement and work family life balance.
Cons: limited advancement opportunties, thus far within the company.
Since NCI is a contract company, often the quality of your day or lack thereof typically will reflect on the client you are assigned to much more than NCI, your employer. I have had a great experience because I have done great work, and both leads, and customers have positively acknowledged my efforts.

It's a great place to work with a good team work environment.
IT Support Specialist (Current Employee), Washington, DCMarch 5, 2013
Pros: i enjoy working independently with no supervision.
Cons: some days are so busy, there’s no time to catch your breath.
I have been able to grow and learn lots of new technical skills working for NCI. I’ve learn how to increase my ability to assist customers over the phone working on the Helpdesk. My technical skills continued to grow when I got promoted to the Deskside team. It involved a lot of hands on troubleshooting supporting customers onsite. Each day can be different – more... than the previous with new customers and new technical issues. I’ve learned to make unhappy frustrated customers smile and request me for assistance. – less

Easy to get RR but you'll need it
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee), Reston, VAFebruary 13, 2013
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
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 – more... 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. – less

The company was exceptional until a management/ownership change took place.
Bundling Operator (Current Employee), Elizabethton, TNJanuary 9, 2013
Pros: overtime hours available
Cons: it would be an advantage to have notice of projected hours.
I enjoyed my job at this company for several years. Now that management/ownership has changed I find that the environment, policies and work ethic of the company is less than desirable now. I report to work at four am every morning. I do not know each day what the schedule may hold, some days we work eight hours , some days we work sixteen hours.The – more... job I am on now is very repetitive in some aspects; I am responsible for packing out specific parts to "package" steel buildings for shipping. I select the parts use a fork lift to move them, strap them to pallets, load them on a trailer and use a yard truck to move the trailer to the shipping yard. I use a hand held scanner to scan out parts for the order and a computer to check status and download completed work orders for shipping. I have several good friends at the company, people that I have worked with for years and I value their friendships. It is very hard to see them with such low morale mostly for the same reasons I have stated. The job is very physically demanding the hardest mental task is keeping up with the job and bundle numbers as they are not all assembled and sent at the same time. The camaraderie I have with some of my co-workers is my favorite part of the social aspect of the job. I enjoy being able to move around doing this job. I also like the extra hours we get during some seasons. I have three children and a wife and I am always appreciative of being able to make more money. – less
